I am surrounded by strong, beautiful ladies who encourage me every day. They teach me that there's always something to be excited about, that there's nothing like rocking out with your favorite people, and we are so blessed to have each other in our lives. God gave me a big family when He gave me these ladies. I have cried with them, celebrated with them, and prayed with them.
If you're lost and struggling today, please take my advice. Get plugged into a group. It can be a Bible study, a kid's play group, or a fitness class. When I stumbled into my first Zumba® class, I didn't realize how lonely and lost I was. Sure I had my family but I didn't realize how much I needed close friendships. I didn't realize that I needed to mentor and be mentored to. I needed women who tell it like it is, who became my prayer warriors, who fill my heart with joy every day.... Friends, trust me. I know many of you come here with struggles. It isn't just the weight loss. Today, do something for you. Do something that fills you with joy and get plugged into a group. Don't wait like I did. I promise you will never regret it!
