So up until now, I think I’ve kind of been in a bubble. A decent sized bubble, but a bubble nonetheless.
Up until today, I have had my friends, my family, other RBL members, kind of on this journey with me, but they were all people I had either met from RBL or they were personal acquaintances. I never really thought I was sharing this experience with people I had never met. Until Today.
I was in the locker room of the Caine Halter YMCA dropping off my bag when someone came up to me and said “So how’s your journey going so far?”
I must have looked confused, because he then followed up with “That is a Rob’s Big Loser’s shirt, right?”
I said “yes sir, and it’s going really good so far, thanks for asking.”
Him: “I’ve listened to a lot of your guys stories on the Radio and thinks it’s awesome what you are all doing. It’s really neat to meet one of you in person.”
A second gentleman join in: “If you ever have any questions about anything feel free to ask any of us, we’re here for you.”
Guys, I cannot express how awesome I felt. Like, real world people are following my journey. I thanked them profusely and then went and had an awesome workout.
If you’re reading this and you’re one of those people following along with us and praying, thank you so so much. It means the world to me.
And if you’re following along because you’re looking for inspiration to lose weight yourself, check the Y out. It has easily been the most welcoming, most helpful workout center I have ever encountered.
RBL Members, the world is listening and watching us, let’s show the world what God can do when we rely on him for our health and well-being!
