I'm simply AMAZED

by ALL of you...

I have been completely touched by all of you and your stories.

Some of weight-loss, overcoming stroke, heart disease, back injuries, foot injuries...etc.

Some are mothers, grandmothers, daughters...

I realized throughout this week, that we ALL share something in common, no matter what our story may be...we are HEALTHY WOMEN! We strive each day to make our health a top priority and we are taking others on this journey with us. Whether its a running buddy, friend, neighbor, sister, our readers...whoever.

I am SO proud to have you all as my readers and loyal followers! After hosting this race, I have realized that we are ALL in this together. This journey to the highest quality of life possible, together. I faced many obstacles on my weight-loss journey and continue to battle them each day, and with my blog, I now know that I am not alone. We all set out each day to commit to being fit. To exercise. To promote healthy living within our community and family. Although we may live far apart, we are like a support system for each other. I know that when I'm feeling lazy and don't wanna get up and exercise/run, I can visit my favorite bloggers and know they are out there pushing themselves to the limit and striving to meet or exceed their personal best! That is motivation enough for me. Knowing my family benefits from a healthy wife, mother and daugther is motivation enough for me. AND knowing that THIS blog has reached all of you in some way, that is reason enough for me to know that I AM working hard to make a difference, share my story and struggles to hopefully impact another person who seems so lost, as I once was.

Today is the last day of the Independence 5K! This race and all of you have exceeded my expectations for a virtual race! Amazing.
I have received a lot of the great giveaways in the mail the past few days! You will be SO excited to see this WaterGeeks bottle...super cute and perfect for those hot days!

Some giveaways will be mailed directly from the company, so I haven't seen those yet, but I know they'll be great too! I will draw lucky winners on the 11th, that way people have time to report their times/pictures/blog post and more for all of their entries to count!

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY PARTICIPANTS!

I am forever grateful.

Hello, I always like to read about Health tips.

I lost approx 100 Pounds weight.

It was my biggest dream which was come true by California medical weight management.

I had tried many things, like control on diets, workout at home, weight loss pills and many other things, but nothing helped me. I had lost lot of money.

One day I got an offer for free medical weight loss checkup and 40% discount on Program. I went for free consultation. They ensured me that I would lose my weight, they shown me previous results, their techniques and programs. I was impressed and enrolled in the program. Within a month, I lost 25 Pounds. I was so happy. In another 4 months I lost 100 pounds.

My all friends were surprised, that was amazing...
I am thankful of Dr. Michael.

Friends, if you want to lose weight, I suggest you to talk with the doctor, they offer free weight loss consultation, to contact them, you just need to make appointment online and they will call you for free advice. Best of luck....
