Being Challenged in Life is Inevitable, Being Defeated is Optional
For the last 10 weeks, I have been taking part in the KC Slimdown Community Challenge with my fellow Taking It All team mates. I was already a few weeks into my journey to my ‘after’ when I was approached to join this challenge. With over 1,350 teams and 6,939 players competing in the KC Slimdown Community Challenge, I realistically never expected my team to come out on top but rather took on the challenge as a motivator more than anything else. I LOVED the fact that the YMCA that I attend was an official weigh-in location and I was able to weigh myself every time I was at the Y and it would calculate all the percentage of my weight loss. I still have a few days until I have to do my final weigh-in and regardless of what my ending percentage will be I am proud of what I have done and where I intend to go.
Where are you going? Is it where you want to be? Are you challenging yourself?
