The 12 week challenge is over.
As a group we lost 41.1kgs
We exercised for 26,477 minutes
Moral is high
...and the scales read low!
This week it is back to normality
With just one last surprise
A bunch of flowers from the ladies in the hospital kitchen 
Thanking me for 12 weeks of fun
and getting to know them 
I didn't need flowers as thanks
I'm just chuffed to have people smile and wave as we pass in the corridor
People who's name I didn't know a few months ago
Breaking down some barriers
and seeing each other as people
not just a uniform
Thank you

  1. Sounds like a great experience...and what a thoughtful gesture from the ladies!

  2. What a fun way to get healthy AND make new friends! Lovely flowers... for a lovely lady! Are you starting another 12 weeks?

  3. The rumour is that we will do a quick Oct/November blitz to get ready for squeezing into our Christmas party dresses.... Watch this space!

  4. Hi Gina, oh how I wish someone like you lived near me .. would be fantastic :-)

  5. I have to second what Anne said. I don't think I've ever "met" someone online that I'd like to have as a neighbor quite as much as you.

    Lovely, and congrats!

  6. In response to the above comments, I am privileged to say I do live near Gina and she is great to have as a friend - always has a laugh and always has a "glass half full" attitude and, as for the story telling, - she is certainly entertaining.

  7. Great news! Promoting healthy, happy lives! Making friends along the way.

  8. Anne and Leslie, I am on board with you! I want her as my neighbor!!! Gina, don't ever change, you are an inspiration in so many ways.

  9. Congratulations! What an amazing accomplishment for all who took part! It's been incredibly inspiring to read about your 12-week challenge, and I think it's wonderful that you organized this!
