The other day I got an email from one of the consultants who does trainings for our organization. Now, this is a guy that I admire. He's an amazing training and has such a positive vibe that people feel like they've been through a therapy session when he's done. He's humble and nice and just an all around great guy.
In this email, he tells me how he's been thinking about my weight loss journey and how inspiring I am. He's joined the Biggest Loser club thing at his job. Me? An inspiration? This guy is inspired by me. It's amazing to me that people are inspired by my weight loss. I'm not being humble or naive or looking to flush out more "You're the best!!!" statements. I'm already honored and motivated by those of you out there who have told me that I've inspired you. What me about it all, is that everyday I'm looking for ways to stay inspired.
I'm inspired by so many of the stories out in the weight loss blogosphere, because there is so much motivation there. I'm inspired by the family that I was born into, because there is so much support there. I'm inspired by my friends, because there is so much encouragement there. So now I'll add me, I'm inspired by me, because there is so much strength here.
