This is the order of people who found out I was at the gym and losing weight:
2. Best friend
5. Church friend
That’s all who knew for 4 months.
Then there was a family reunion that I could not attend, so I took pics of the kids so Dad could show the family. I’d been reading how journaling and photos are good fitness practices. So I included a picture of myself.
Then I came out on Facebook. I got a tremendous positive response to the news that I’d gone from pant size 24 to 18.
Then my trainer posted a picture of me with the news that I’d lost 22 lbs and reduced my waist size by 10 in. More FB encouragement came pouring in.
That’s when I started this blog.
