Tonight I am getting to lead our Ideal Protein information Seminar. I haven't done one in over a year, and will probably make a few mistakes by getting things out of order. It will still be FUN! I love helping people to learn how to lose weight and feel great. It is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since I was on my major weight loss journey. I still remember how hard it was to be 255 lbs. I hated not being able to buy clothes in the normal clothing department--and in being full of anxiety about how I looked. It was awful to travel for my job and to think that the person who was beside me on the plane was unhappy that they were sitting by a "large" woman. It was hard to present myself in the medical field as a software and management consultant when I knew my own health was out of control.
So tonight, I will meet some new people. Maybe they only have a little weight to lose to feel better and wear cute clothes for the summer. They might have many pounds to lose and have a longer journey ahead to find better health. Either way, it is wonderful to be here to show them it can be done, and to have such a great staff to support them as they work the protocol.
All in all----and great way to spend part of an evening!
