This book is about supporting another woman in your life for health and wellness.
A while back, on an eighteen mile run, something in me changed and a few months later I found myself asking the question to God or the Universe, “What is my purpose here? I lost ninety-eight lbs and ran a marathon for some reason, what is it??? What do you want me to do?”
It hit me smack in the face as I sitting in my recliner making up a Power Point presentation for a Let’s Lose It class at the YMCA. I told myself this:
“I want other women find the same feeling that I had on that run. I want women who feel like they can’t change, can’t be fit, can’t lose weight, can’t be strong to know this is possible. I want “real life women” to know this is possible. I want women to feel what I felt; I want them to know what feeling strength and power is like; I want them to be selfish enough to take back their health knowing the benefits to their family, their community and the globe.
This is a great step forward, please join me.
