So it was a beautiful Sunday in October 2015 and you were brave enough to get in your car and head to Nashua NH. You were scared, nervous and unable to calm the butterflies in your stomach. You were thinking to yourself “is this it” is this my chance to change my life. Could this be your “BIGGEST LOSER” or “Extreme Makeover” ? Has your time come……… ? You’ld been to this place a couple of times as an outsider dropping off your dedicated and enthusiastic sister. What went on inside this building that had her so hooked and excited each time you dropped her off? As you took a deep breath and opened the door your last and lingering question was will they think I’m a lost cause? So you smiled your best smile and met the four other people who shared your dreams and knew first hand of the sadness this unfit life had become. You listened as each story unfolded and heard that same tone of yearning to be better and do better. As you looked down the line you thought to yourself how could the coaches say “NO” to any of us we all needed this. Well as you now know that extremely generous decision was made and “THE FAB FIVE” was born.
This letter to you is written as a reminder of the courage it took to take those first steps. The determination to complete that first workout, pull that sled and push it because it felt good & you could. Most importantly remember YOU ARE WORTH IT, YOU DESERVE IT and I’m proud of you.
The Healthier & Happier Amy.
