Star date Dec. 30, 2010, time is 10:1200 a.m. This is my last entry. To all of you who have read my past entries, thank you. To everyone who gave me encouragement and support, thank you.
As of this hour I have not yet had my last workout or weigh-in for FIT Challenge 2010. That will change as of 11:30 today. The final results will be revealed in the Sandusky Register's Jan. 11 issue.
I made it through Christmas without any weight gain and the scale will soon reveal if I have broken through this plateau. I have decided it doesn't matter if I win this competition because as far as I am concerned we are all winners, Gary, Annette, and I. All three of us have gone through sweat, tears, and a few minor injuries to get to our current weights.
How could we not be winners? Being a winner doesn't necessarily mean your first. To me it means overcoming personal obstacles to become a better you/me.
Gary and Annette, thank you for making this challenge so challenging. Thank you for being friendly competitors by giving your encouragement to each other as well as myself. I can't wait to see where we all are at the six-month update.
To Brandi and the Sandusky Register, thank you! You have helped us change our lives. And continue to change the lives of others through this competition. And it's all good!!
To the Northern Ohio Medical Fitness Center and staff, you guys have been amazing!! I have always told people I don't have just one trainer, I have five! I can't thank you enough for allowing me to use your facility to change my life and lifestyle! You guys are the world's best!!
To T.J. Temper, there are really no words to express how much you've come to mean to me. You are/were not only my trainer but you are my friend. What an awesome human being you are. OK, that's enough, I'm getting all emotional! Seriously, T.J. , the words thank you just don't seem to enough to express my gratitude.
This is Ellyn M. Clark, FIT Challenger 2010, signing off.
