Starting Line

Well tomorrow is my first day.  I gotta tell you I have not stopped smiling since I was told I was chosen.  I am very excited but yet very nervous.  My hands were shaking when I posted the news to my friends and family on facebook because I never really put myself out there before.  I received so many calls and notes of support I feel driven not to let anyone including myself down.  I know if I give this challenge 110% I will live my life happier, healthier and most importantly long enough to see my kids go through life.  I know I am in for a journey but I also know that I am a strong women with a can do attitude and that will get me through the next three months.  I thank everyone that was involved in making this happen, words cannot express how much this opportunity means to me.  I have filled out the biggest loser application so many times and just looked at it never turning it in because I am a sap and leaving my family behind for up to four months would crush me.  My family is the most important part of my life and having them here cheering me on through my adventure will keep me driven and focused.  So follow me on my journey and I promise you and me that we will cross the finish line.

  1. Congrats Shirley! You will be amazing!

  4. Babe don't be afraid of high hopes
    or plans that seem to be out of reach.
    Life is meant to be experienced,
    and every situation allows for
    learning and growth.

    Motivation is a positive starting point,
    and action places you on a forward path.
    A dream is a blueprint
    of a goal not yet achieved;
    the only difference between the two
    is the effort involved in attaining
    what you hope to accomplish.

    Let your mind and heart urge you on;
    allow the power of your will
    to lead you to your destination.

    Don't count the steps ahead;
    just add up the total
    of steps already covered,
    and multiply it by
    faith, confidence, and endurance.

    Always remember that
    for those who persist,
    today's dreams are transformed
    into tomorrow's successes.

    Love Your Proud Husband :)
