Becoming an Inspiration to Myself and Others

“I was told I would be dead if I did not do something about my weight. I was told I needed to learn to exercise, but I could not walk up my own stairs. That was 4 years and over 100 extra pounds ago. I had weight loss surgery in April of 2013. I knew that was my last chance and I was not going to blow it. One night, I saw an informercial telling me to ‘Join the Party’. So I did just that for my birthday and I was hooked. My instructor told me I should become one myself so that I could inspire others like I had inspired her class. So I did just that!”
