|Y’all, she has the sweetest accent and she’s super nice in person.
I’m genuinely glad that I had the chance to meet her in person.
I learned many things this weekend. Even though I faltered a little on the diet, I feel ok that I’ve made it this far without a huge free for all. I could have had a few less drinks but I made up for it in other places (taking stairs instead of escalators, walking instead of cabs, water, water, water, and more) so whatever the scale says tomorrow, I earned it, good or bad. What I do know is that Medifast makes it super easy to get right back on track and that is where I am today.
I also did a lot of soul searching on where I want to take this blog and my life. I met a lady on the plane that was very much into nutrition (Hi Laurel!) and she has really inspired me to do a lot more research about the foods I feed my family. I talked to so many people that were so impressed with my progress and I could see the hope in their eyes that they could pull this off too. Those people inspire me to work harder than ever to get and stay healthy.
And the greatest thing I learned this weekend? I can fit into a plane seat with much room on either side to spare. Gone are the days where I try to make my large body as small as possible so I am not crowding others.
I feel like there are other things I am forgetting to tell you. I’m so tired. But I will be posting more about my trip later this week.
To my friends at Medifast (and yes, for all you’ve done for me, in my head you are my friends) thank you. I wish you could fully express how this plan has changed my life and how the opportunity to go to BlogHer’11 is seriously one of the most amazing gifts I’ve ever received in my life. The words just don’t seem to be enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
