What is your inspiration during the challenge?

  • One of the things I hear people say about doing the challenge is that you need inspiration, or a reason, to push through the challenge.  Some it's family, to have a better life, or maybe a little bit of many things.  I actually have two buffs, and a bandana that symbolize why I'm doing the challenge.

    A Survivor Buff:  Symbolizes that I'm doing this for myself, so I can live a long, healthy life, without limits of obesity.

    A simple grey biff:  Symbolizes that I'm doing this so that I can be a better leader when needed.  After all, how can I lead others if I can't even lead myself to make good choices.

    A purple bandana:  Symbolizes that I'm doing this for my family.  A lot of my close to home family is obese, and I'm hoping that through my hard work I might inspire my family, and others, to make a change to improve their lives.

     

    What inspires you?

  • What inspires me...

    Having the ability to look in to the eyes of an obese person and be able to say "I've been where you are and I know that it can be done".
