I feel so good inside...this is why-

I guess I've inspired 2 people to get fit and healthy! It's pay back time for the ones that have helped me along the way.
One is a good friend of mine who wants to lose weight and learn to eat better. She told me that I motivated her so much that she joined my gym AND bought an elliptical! She has since lost 4 pounds and instead of smoking a pack a day-she's down to 2 a day. I'm SO proud of her!
The other gal I met in a store a few weeks ago. We started chatting and she asked me what I did to look so fit and toned. I told her exactly how I got started,what I eat and drink,how much I exercise and my fitness routine....of course I passed Spark People along to her. We swapped numbers and she called me for the first time today to tell me that she started walking everyday,choosing better foods and doing fitness dvds'. The first thing that came out of her mouth was..THANK-YOU for putting fire under my butt to get me going. Ok,I did get teary eyed and goose bumps. We are going walking next week to continue our journey together.
I havent EVER had anyone tell me thank-you for helping them and honestly mean it. I'm on cloud nine.
