I was interviewed on Crossfit Radio a few weeks ago
Kind of crazy, right?
And I’m going to post the link
In case you’d like to listen to it
And give me your feedback
Here’s the thing
You all know
That writing is something I feel comfortable doing
When discussing my journey
But talking about it….
That’s a whole different story
I’m not a speaker
So talking on the fly
Was not really something I felt comfortable doing
You all have encouraged me to try new things
And that gave me the confidence to try Crossfit
In the first place!
Which made me say ‘yes’ to this as well
So I feel like this is somewhat of a group victory
Don’t you think?!
Getting involved with a group of people
Who work out together
Has helped to keep me motivated
I’m getting back into the world
And I’m learning not to isolate
To try new things
To open myself up to new opportunities
Diana has encouraged and supported me
From the moment I stepped in the door
She wrote an article about my experience at Crossfit
And because of that
I was asked to do an interview
For Crossfit Radio!!!
I was very nervous
I was hesitant
And I wasn’t sure if I should
But I kept thinking about all of you
And how much your encouragement has meant to me
So even though I prefer writing
I DID IT!
I stepped outside the comfort zone
And I went for it
The majority of the interview
Was about my journey
About my background
What led me to 417 pounds
The pain and misery of obesity
My experience with surgery
And the days following
To be honest
He asked me more about those things
Than my specific experiences with Crossfit
So even if you don’t want to hear about the Crossfit part
You might find the rest of it interesting
If you get a chance to listen
That would be great
Because I would love your feedback!!
Good, bad or indifferent
I trust your opinions
I love each and everyone of you
And I thank you for the part you have played
In helping me step outside of the comfort zone
Try new things
And press on towards victory!!

And thanks in advance if you do!!!
