Today marks Day 1 of my journey to lose weight and get my health back. Getting to meet Dr. Oz was beyond incredible. He is so encouraging, so down to earth, and just sweet as can be! The best part of bein on the show was getting to meet Nancy Schuessler, my inspiration for all of this. She is amazing!! I know that with her and Dr. Oz by my side I can be succesful. I can do this!
I walked for 30 minutes tonight with my little pomeranian-chihuahua Maggie. It was harder than I thought it would be. In fact, I wanted to give up after 15 minutes. But, I pressed on. And even though I was achy afterward, it felt so good! I did it! I pushed on, I didn't give up, and I succeeded.
Having a Coach is amazing. I am not alone in this. Nancy is so encouraging, and she just gets it. She has been there. She knows what I'm feeling before I can come up with the words to describe it. She is a soul sister, and I cherish and love her already. :)
This is going to be a rough, long, challenging journey. I won a few battles today, but the war rages on. But what is different this time, is that I feel such a peace. I know that it's going to be hard. This is most likely the hardest thing I will ever do in my life. But that will only make the victory of overcoming food that much sweeter.
I'm learning so much, even in this short time, that it is a bit overwhelming. I'm jotting down notes and journaling, trying to keep everything straight. I know my biggest battle will be giving myself grace when I need it, and not giving up when I slip up.
I'm in this for the long haul, and I feel as thought I finally have all of the support and tools I need to be successful. A huge thank you to Dr. Oz and his staff for everything they have done. And to Nancy Schuessler, my beautiful, inspiring, amazing Coach and sister along this journey, I am forever grateful and indebted to you for literally saving my life.
More to come... :)
