I made a friend over the weekend and her user name on twitter is, "maggieslosingit." If you have a Twitter account, please click to follower her. And it just so happens that is the name of her blog as well. She is an individual like myself, who is trying lose weight to become healthier. If you have a free moment, visit her blog to see what she is all about, http://www.maggieslosingit.blogspot.com/. I find Maggie to be a very big inspiration because, as it says on her blog site, she had finally decided it was time to lose weight and to change her life. And the next part I found to be very awesome, she says, "Whether its 50 or 250 pounds, I need to do this for me." I think what she says there is amazing. She is not determined by the particular amount she loses, she is embarking on her own mission to become healthier for herself.
I received a comment on my blog this morning from Maggie. Within the comment she said to me, "I still have so far to go until I get there. But, I'll keep chugging away!" These few words that she said to me, is exactly what I was talking about in the first paragraph of today's post. With her experience, she realizes that it will take time to get to her weight loss goal, but she will also keep on going until she reaches it. It is great to see that other people share the same goals as I do. Seeing that I have learned the same things through my experiences as other people have, makes me believe that I am heading in the right direction. Maggie, I wish the best of luck to you on your mission and I hope that you get to where you want to be.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
