“I lost three dress sizes and I do NOT want them back.
I think the first dress size was attributable to Audrey and Katie, the dietician, who did nothing but support me throughout the past six weeks. Both of these ladies listened to me whine, but never gave in, they just gave me great advice! Kept my spirits up, and there is nothing like making Audrey smile and Katie wheeze with laughter! That first dress size was because for the first time in years, I walked with my head up…and that was in the first week!
The second dress size was due to my incredible community of workout leaders. What impressed me the most, was that every class I took was not about “cheating” or even coming close to “giving up” but it was about really trying and succeeding. I still cannot believe that I did four days in a row but the confidence every class gave me increased the belief that I could do just about anything. Thank you Shanella, Fran, and Kelsy.
And the last dress size, well I reserve it for my personal trainers. Kate, you said something about all or nothing, and you were right. You infused me with your enthusiasm and you gave me great confidence. You changed my perception of myself. Patrice never ever let me give up…in fact I think she relished the hard parts of my workout almost as much as I did. That is a great trainer! I not only retrained my body, but also my mind too. Thank you to Mel S. (therapist) who let me grieve, for the first time, the loss of my mother. I will always remember that gift!
I learned that food was not bad, that friends made here are priceless, and that you are never EVER alone.
Thank you all so much.”*
