Day 8

Hello All,

Yesterday was a Ok day.

During lunch, I walked with my walking buddy Beth "Beths". We walked around the trails around the hospital (Centegra-Mchenry). If anyone would like to walk with us please email me and we can set up a time. Beth and I have been walking during our lunch for the past few months. We try to walk as often as possible. Beth has been a good friend to walk with. Thanks Beth..
My evening cardio was a little rough. I went to Executive Fitness and did Cardio for a half hour with Kimmy. After that I was about to call it a day but I knew Kimmy wouldn't let me stop after the half hour so we went another half hour for a total of 1 hour. Thanks Kimmy!! I also owe this extra motivation to our friend Keeva, who did 70 mins of Cardio in the morning by herself. I know that I have been asked by many of you, how can I do so much cardio? The answer to that is I have my friends to do Cardio with. I don't think I could so much cardio if I had to do it by myself. So its always good to have a buddy to do cardio with. Believe me time goes by so fast.
I received a interesting email a few days ago. The person that sent me the email said it was ok for me to share his story on my blog. He had a story so similiar to what I had 4 months ago. He is overweight, been called fat by people around him, has a membership to a gym but never goes, watches weight loss shows while eating fatty foods, is so shy around people, etc... When I read his email I really thought of me about 4 months ago. I know how I felt then and I know how he was feeling. Unfortunatly in society "overweight" people are looked down upon. Its not like we want to be this way. I can tell you that I have had a gym membership for most of my life but I was still overweight. One thing that has stuck in my head from his email is "Jay, I know that I am overweight, and I know I have tried to lose weight before but this time is different. This time I have finally found someone that was were I am and can understand the issues I have. I know that I might not be able to lose the weight as fast as you, but atleast I have someone that I can talk to and motivate me because you are the "average joe"". That made me feel so good. Like I have said before I have done this journey and am still doing it and want to help as many people as I can. Like I told my new friend in his response email, "you have done the first step in losing weight, you admitted your problem and want to do something about it.". That means so much to me. Like I told him and I am going to tell you all, I will do whatever it takes to help all of you to lose weight.
