Or at least AOL Takes it Off, anyway. Today was my last day wearing the crown of the AOL Takes it Off featured journal, and I get to pass it on to another weight loss buddy of mine, Kim, author of Kim's Weight Loss Journey. She's finding her success through Weight Watchers, so if you haven't checked her out yet you should. Give her an encouraging word.
What I have enjoyed in the last 29 days has included numerous emails of encouragement, advice and support. I've been humbled by the stories people have shared with me, always punctuating their heartfelt letters with admiration for me - when it really should have been the other way around.
For someone who has hoped to touch the world in a major way with her words, this month has been in a lot of ways, my dream come true. I hope it's just the beginning of what I can accomplish, and that one day you'll see me up on that stage for having written something important and life changing.
Thanks to everyone who has written to me, or responded to my journal - (and I'm sorry I couldn't keep up with you all) - for letting me know you think that I've already accomplished that here.
The journey continues even though the limelight has faded. Here's to everyone who will continue to walk with me. I really couldn't do this without you all.
