It’s been an amazing ride!

What an amazing time getting to see everyone at the 5K.  You all did an incredible job and you should feel proud of your weight loss. What an honor it was to have this amazing opportunity with everyone. I want to thank His Radio, Rob Dempsey and the Greenville County YMCA for providing this journey for us.  I also want to thank my trainer Misty Beacham and Tamika Pollard for your encouragement to keep pressing on.  To all my Eastside RBL family, let’s keep it going and finished what we started. I am still working towards my goal to lose 40 more pounds.  I just want to encourage each of you to keep going and let’s help each other.  This is not the end, it’s just the beginning of a new healthy life.  We must make a constant effort every day to keep using the tools we have learned during this 12-week challenge.  When I started twelve weeks ago, I had trouble breathing, I had trouble sleeping, I didn’t have any energy and all my clothes felt uncomfortable.  Since losing the weight I cannot tell you how much better I feel.  I am sore from workouts and I have trouble with my knee but it’s a good feeling to breathe better, to sleep better and to feel comfortable in my own skin. Let’s keep it going!GroupChange
