The results are in….

And I am very satisfied. My body responded well to the workouts and nutrition here at Fitness North. I lost 9 pounds the first week and 9.4 the second week. In addition I lost a combined total of 13 inches between my thighs, hips, waist and chest. I am encouraged to be going home with a plan which includes exercise and a nutrition plan. I will keep you posted on the peaks and valleys that likely will continue as I journey this road.

And so tonight we spent the evening together, enjoying a meal, karaoke, laughter, dancing, singing and celebration. Celebration of new friendships, individual and group accomplishments, delightful interactions and anticipated gatherings where we will meet again. I have been with a very wonderful group of people. We range from 19 to 57, all have different stories life circumstances and yet an amazing bond with one another. I am very proud of everyone and their weight loss. As a group we lost more than 185 pounds. (two people still need to report in!)

And so, now I must call it a day. Tomorrow I will think through how often I am going to continue to blog. I enjoy writing every day and believe there are stores to share even in ordinary day-to-day living. I very much appreciate all of you have followed along and cheered me on. I am touched by how many offered kind words which reminded me daily to press ahead.

I will write tomorrow night when I return home and am reunited with my wonderful family and my chocolate lab pup Dutch. Dutch and I will begin classes this week so that Dutch can be a therapy dog. I am sure that in itself will offer some interesting blogging stories.

Signing off tonight with less on my outside and overflowing heart within…..

  3. Trish, God has used your jouney these 2 weeks to check what is happening in my own heart in different situations. I think you said in an early blog the commitment to this was costly as well as demanding. How do you put a price tag on helping people to take an “honest” look at what is going on in their hearts? I love your vulnerability, your heart for others, your honesty and I consider it an honor to be allowed to journey with you in your “boot camp”. You have a gift for writing and I don’t want to miss your blogs.

  4. Way to go, Trish!!! Be proud – you can have some gloat time. Your persistance paid off and I, along with many others, are happy for you. We’re also happy for ourselves – that you shared your journey with us, you’ll be healthier, our awareness of health and heart issues have been heightened, etc. Welcome back, we’ll still be cheering.
