In spite of my fears & doubts, I entered ONEDERLAND today

Saturday, July 21, 2018

I fought for so long to reach the 225 pound goal unsuccessfully, when I decided to go one day at a time, get healthy and adopt total lifestyle change and NEVER QUIT, I've started and continue achieving incredible goals and milestones.

I joined the 5% Challenge Community (Champions in the Kitchen Team - Go Champions!), I changed to much more manageable goals, started using the full Spark people Program, including the Spark Coach and entered the leadership on my teams. I believe you can't keep what you don't give away. I learn so much in sharing and joining with my spark buddies, it's not a one way street folks!

For example: One of my good spark friends and teammates, Diane/Dee (DEEA2Z) lives less than 30 minutes away, who is also a 5%ers (Champions of course) hit the point in the Winter Challenge about a year ago, where we do something to go beyond our comfort zone. We had become "buddies" and were also challenging each other and Diane found that there was a gym that we had as a benefit on our health plans and offered something called Zumba Gold Classes.

You have to understand, Carl at 300# DID NOT GO TO GYMS, DID NOT WEAR GYM ATTIRE or anything like THAT! But we had agreed to "GO BEYOND OUR COMFORT ZONES" and to always take up each others challenges. Well if you look over my blogs and video blogs, you'll see that I not only went to my first Zumba Gold and regular Zumba Classes, I became a licensed Zumba Instructor.

I encourage everybody to seriously search themselves and if you find that you want to become healthy and achieve YOUR highest well-being make a friend/buddy in the 5% Challenge Community like Diane and I have and be ready to go beyond your comfort zone and TAKE THE NEVER QUIT PLEDGE!

Above all let's make this fun - I'm in it to win it WITH YOU!!!! emoticon emoticon

Congrats Diane on your becoming an official Life Coach!!!!
