winners and losers

I went to workout this morning at the TR y and was doing my thang yes thang when a man also working out gave me the thumbs up on what i was doing.I politely thanked him and kept on when another person told me how good I was doing at which I stopped and talked for a minute about my journey on Robs Biggest Losers to which the first person told me he won the contest 2 years ago.Well of course I stopped and listened to his encouraging words and advice.It felt so good to hear of his challenges and successes.The journey has continued for him but I am encouraged that this is not just for the 12 weeks but for life…..I am also encouraged at the community support from all the others that are following me and my journey for life.
