You Inspire Us!

You Inspire Us!

It never ceases to amaze us here at First30Days that you are so willing to share yourselves with us. We understand how hard it is to create lasting change in life. A letter we received today from Linda underscores that principle as it applies to losing weight:

I heard you on Gayle King's XM talk show today. I was sitting in the car finishing my sandwich about to go in to my Weight Watcher meeting.  WOW! is all I can say. You have really put into words all that I've been going through the last 3 1/2 years. I've lost 105lbs through persistence,being supported by my WW group and learning all the things that you actually put in to words! Sometimes it is hard to explain why I could be successful after 5-6 failed attempts at this over the last 20 years. Everything that you talked about is really right on and explained my journey very well! Thanks for sharing this. I am about to purchase your book and share these insights at my meeting! Hopefully we can get some others inspired and get through the "demons" of change!! Thanks, Linda

Linda, thank YOU! This is exactly why we are here, and getting the message out there that yes, you can change! You are stronger and more resilient than you've ever been told. Change does take time, but we know that there are things you can do, think  and say to get through it. If you want to listen to the Oprah and Friends show Linda referenced, click here. And let us know where you're standing in the midst of change...we'd love to hear from you!
