To My Extraordinary Beautiful Sister Freda,
To lose a pound of fat, you have to burn 3,500 calories more than you consume, so you can see how hard it is to exercise your way through a poor diet. You put trust in me when I asked you to join me on my weight loss journey. You followed my diet regimen and exercised like a champion. More importantly you did not let yourself down nor your commitment to me as a sister. I commend you because loosing weight is hard but carrying that weight around is harder. The choice was yours and you choose you. I reassured you loosing weight would be easier than you thought . It was no more than a mere battle with your MIND. Freda, I remember talking with you a few months ago and exercise seemed like the biggest CHORE in your day and I reminded you that loosing weight is like running a marathon. Most people give up only a few miles before the finish line. Sis continue your course and I dare you not to stop until you make it it across the finish line. I promise I will be on the other side cheering you on. Continue to SHINE & LEAD by example. Never forget I admire you with my whole heart and I believe in you.
