Last Sunday morning I made my friend walk on the beach even though it was only 40 degrees. She told me that the light house was over four miles away. I had a hard time believing her since it looked so close. I knew I could make it.
I asked her if she knew I was going to make her walk all the way and walk the pier when we got there. She said she would expect no less of me. Once I set my mind to something, I'm going to achieve it.
That is the light house in the background behind my arm. We had walked quite a ways toward it when we took this picture.
In the end, we walked almost 8 miles in two hours. I could never have done even 1/8 of this when I weighed nearly 400 pounds. I was so exhausted, but very proud of this accomplishment.
