First off I would like to take the opportunity to say Thank You to all the people on the frontlines as well as behind the scenes of Body-for-LIFE®.
These last 12 weeks of motivation, knowledge and support have brought me to a place within myself that I never thought I would ever be. I took a leap of faith and let BFL educate me and guide me through this life-changing journey.
It would take more than one of these essay pages to list all of the truly amazing revelations that I have experienced, so I will only be able to share a few.
- The black and white world that I have viewed for many years has color in it again.
- My rough around the edges approach to life in general has softened.
- My glass half empty perspective is overflowing.
- These feelings are only a fraction of what my BFL transformation has revealed to me.
Gaining control of my physical and mental wellbeing has afforded me the chance to redirect my life towards a place I want to live in, not just exist in. This BFL challenge has given me the tools to make that happen. It is up to me to use them for assistance in overcoming the obstacles that come my way and embrace the blessings I receive each day. I know that may sound corny but it is true.
I’m a 46-year-old police officer of 20+ years. I have a very loving and supportive husband and 2 wonderful sons who now think I “ROCK”. With only 9 days left in my Challenge, Hurricane Ike ripped through our Texas coast, leaving in its path incredible damage. The obstacles thrown my way were enormous but the lessons I learned through BFL up to that point were instrumental in keeping me from throwing in the towel and giving up. Ike couldn’t rain on my BFL parade. WOW! What a ride.
Thanks again y’all.
