Thank You, My Girl-Heroes.
Iâ€™ve missed you and Iâ€™ve missed blogging.
I thought Thanksgiving would be a perfect day to get back to blogging. Thereâ€™s nothing like eating 4000 calories then sitting down at my laptop to pontificate on and on about the importance of sane meals. ;) Seriously, I was thinking about all I have to be thankful for and near the top of my list is health. There are so many who are not as fortunate. There are so many who need encouragement. I know. I was one of them. Still, I need a daily dose of encouragement. I loved writing Competing to Lose but as time went on, unlike The Braxtons, I didnâ€™t really feel like it was fitting anymore. I have never wanted to be a â€œfigure competitorâ€. I just wanted my health and flat stomach back. Preparing for the figure competitions helped to get me moving and kept me mostly out of the peanut butter. The competitions were a means to an end and a valuable journey. One I hope to take again in the future. Thinking back over the last year I realize I never would have accomplished my goals without all the Girl-Heroes in my life. The texts, the emails, the comments, the blogs, the message boards, the hugs (cyber and real)â€¦there are SO MANY women who have inspired and encouraged me on my journey. So I decided to name my blog after you my â€œGirl-Heroesâ€. Some of you know who you are and others Iâ€™ve never met but all of you have inspired me and inspire others. Iâ€™ve learned that to make a difference in our lives and the lives of others we need each other. We need each other for support, for learning, for inspiration, for accountability, and for a loving kick in the butt. Thank you. Thank for the motivation, the friendship, the encouragement, and making the choice to live a life of inspiration. Thank you for changing my world by choosing health.
There are still a few tweaks to work out, some features, and tools to add. Please bear with me. If you just found my blog. WELCOME! If you would like to receive Girl-Heroes updates in your inbox there is a sign up box on the right.

Iâ€™m looking forward to reconnecting.
