First Time Challenge Participant
Wednesday, November 12, 2008
Being involved in the Fall challenge has been a fantastic experience. I didn't know what to expect but I figured I had nothing to lose, except for weight (pun intended.) What I didn't expect is how much I've learned about myself. I've learned that apart from my usual "100% initial effort" mentality that my efforts tend to dwindle somewhat much like they always have. However, let me say that I am CERTAINLY not where I was, but I'm also not where I'm going either! My belief is that it is essential to "know one's self." That is how we learn and in the learning we can choose to change. I AM A GO-GETTER but it's that never-ending passion deep inside me that will keep me set on my goals and see them through to the end. I'm so appreciative of this challenge for the weight loss and well...the gains as well because they've taught me just a little bit more about myself. I'm looking forward to the Winter Challenge to correct some of these discovered inadequacies so that I can meet the goals that I've set out to meet.
