Wowza! That most recent blog post from Stephanie, FitFatGirl Alumni was incredibly flattering! Thank you Stephanie for your support both on the emotional and technical side of things AND for a beautifully written transition. There’s good reason you’ve had such a following, a person’s world is only as big as their heart and your online community is a reflection of that big world!
Yes, it’s true. Fit Fat Girl is undergoing some shifts and while the face of FFG is changing, the fundamental mission remains the same. Knowing that, I hope you’ll hanging around for the ride cause it’s going off-road and bumpy! I’m tinkering with http://www.fitfatgirl.com and the site will go live very soon.
So Hello there, my name is Nicole and when I first started conversing with Stephanie I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised by how similar our perspectives and outlooks were. My purpose and motivation to assume Fit Fat Girl mirrors Stephanie’s intent. So I’m going to go ahead, truck on through like she did, be vulnerable in my journey to wellness in the hopes that someone, somewhere will be inspired to take the first step towards better health.
As a mom of 5 great kids that are getting ready to flee the nest it has been a long time coming that I take a hard look in the mirror and start investing in myself again. I attended my first bootcamp in September on my 40th birthday. The folks in the group were asking “why on earth are you here on your birthday?!”. What better day to recommit to reclaiming myself? Aleast that’s what I was saying until later that day when I was lifting my fork full of birthday cake to my mouth like a T-Rex. Oooff! Wakey, wakey triceps and biceps.
There’s a lot to wake up to, but as I’ve heard it said “if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you”. So here’s to new beginnings and pushing outside the comfort zone!
