While I was checking the blog today, I noticed that I received a comment on yesterday's post. This comment was unlike anything I have ever received before. I have received everything from inspirational comments to the comments that give great tips and recipes. However, the comment that was written today wasn't a tip, a piece of advice, or an inspirational quote. It was from a person asking me two questions. The first question was. "Do you drink water all day?" and the second question was, "What meals would you recommend to me?" It turns out this person has been trying to lose weight and is having a hard time doing so. After reading the questions, I was immediately blown away. Here was this person that I have never met before, asking me advice on how to help them get healthier. He or she has been following my blog for the last couple of days and trusted me enough to ask for my advice. I didn't want to mess up my response back to this person, so I made sure to take my time and I answered the questions to the best of my ability.
I personally believe that being able to have someone or some people to help you get through the good and the bad times is very important. Having a support group can only enhance the chances of you being successful and reaching your goals. I am going to extend the same invitation out to everyone who follows this blog as I did to my new friend who wrote the comment on yesterday's post. Please feel free to comment anytime on this blog or feel free to email me with any questions, advice, or if you just want to chat. My email address is - firstname.lastname@example.org. I know from experience how hard it can be, not only trying to lose weight, but trying to accomplish some thing when you are doing it by yourself.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
