I was totally tempted to make some sort of a lame joke this morning.
A misfit’y play on words teasing IM THE GREATEST! about the fact I’m over at GREATIST sharing my story.
The problem is Im really proud of my post over there. No silliness. No joking. No snark.
Im so grateful they invited me to guest post because it compelled me to STOP, make the time to look back and clearly identify the steps I took toward weight loss.
Im so grateful they invited me to guest post because it forced me to slow down, look in the rearview mirror & really examine how I found my voiced amidst the dumbbells and resistance bands.
Id be so grateful if youd take a moment our of your hectic day & join me over there, too.

It IS a really good post – your story is so inspirational. I am a longtime runner but newbie lifter, so I’m trying to keep things in perspective and know that the muscles will come eventually.

Great story indeed! I love the part about 20 minutes a day changing your whole life. Most people don’t realize that’s all it takes to get a new look and a new way of life.

Great guest post. So fabulous to hear about how you discovered fitness. I must admit that lifting/strength training is one of my goals, but I am not doing well at it currently.
Maybe in 40 years I’ll be in the weight room with you (hope it doesn’t take me that long to get there.)
