This was the email I got after that session:
"Dear Coach Sam,
Today was a milestone for me. Not because I lost weight, but because I overcame a fear. Granted, it's still a work in progress, but today I didn't run. I get extremely uncomfortable around people, if it's not obvious. :) When I walked in to work out and saw the girls, I was intimidated…to say the least. I really wanted to make up some excuse so I could leave. Then I remembered what you had told me before about when change happens. I thought of this and it helped me to work through the fear. So, THANK YOU!
It's encouraging and inspiring to see the girls today and know that I can get there too. I'm looking forward to working my butt off, figuratively and literally!
I hope you have a great day!"And just for the record it's been 4 weeks and 11 lbs so far!
