It has been forever, but I have a good reason to post.

September 7, 2011

I know it has been quite awhile since I have posted anything about myself.  The simple reason for that is I am tired of posting my failures.  It used to be much easier getting motivated to post when I had progress or even a hint at it.  Slowly but surely I have stopped losing weight and have gained a little back.  No drastic changes up and down from my previous posts so not much to report right?

Well yes to a certain extent my progress has stalled and I am in a funk but life marches on.  I posted about Louis and his challenge, and am  continually astonished by his accomplishments.  He is an inspiration to me and all the people watching him.  I started this blog out at the Biggest Loser Resort and had great success and met many inspirational people while I was there.  Right now one of those people is hurt and I wish there was something I could for them other then pray.

Sam Poueu is someone you are probably familiar with if you watch the Biggest Loser.  He and his cousin were together on Season 9 of the show and Sam met his future wife Stephanie on the show.  I missed Sam’s season, but I met him at the resort and was lucky enough to be his first official trainee.  He got his training certification while I was there and I was allowed to train with him.  I can honestly say that no one else has ever made me scream while working out.  Sam pushed me to my limit, and it was a limit that he could find and one I never thought I could reach.  He is one of the most genuine, kind people I have ever met, and since his fall a few days ago I have been in a crazy depression.   Sam pays forward what he received and worked hard to get where he is.  It is such a part of him to be kind and giving and everyone around him feels it.  My heart goes out to his family and friends that are there with him.  I sent flowers and have written but I feel powerless to help someone I genuinely care about.  Sam you touched my life and helped change it for the better.

I figure the only thing I can do at this point is focus on the gift he gave me and nurture it as a way to show my appreciation.  I have strayed of late and had often thought of what Sam would say if he saw my workouts or meals where I wasn’t giving 100%.  I know Sam is giving it 100% all the time, and I am praying hard for him to get back up and keep moving forward.
