Two years on FTS...life is good
« on: April 29, 2012, 12:57:31 PM »
Good afternoon all. I know I haven't been around as much as I used to be. I went to school at the beginning of 2012 and got my real estate license. I thought it would be a fun past-time, boy I was wrong. It is not a past-time, it's a full time gig. I'm working for a great company in SW Orlando called Watson Realty and I am REALLY enjoying myself. I have to tell you I have wanted to go to Real Estate school for over 20 years but was too afraid to go. I was so big back then that I was afraid I wouldn't fit in. I also had so many health issues with my ankle that walking and showing houses was just not even in the cards for me. Thanks to FTS that has all changed.

On March 31st I entered into my second year on FTS. I am still maintaining and it is just so simple. I have tossed out my scale, ya my guys still use it but I stay off of it. I can tell how I'm doing by my clothes and I find it easier and less stressful to do it that way. Every now and again I let myself have something I used to love, and you know I find that it never tastes as good as I thought it would. Although, Starbucks Frappachinos are pretty darn good. The best thing about Starbucks is they have sugar free syrups so you can enjoy a yummy treat without all the carbs. Great stuff!

Anyway I wanted you all to know that I am doing great. I even have spread the word in my office and a couple of peeps there have started on FTS. What cracks me up the most is meeting other realtors that don't know about my past weight issues. I don't flaunt it, I enjoy fitting in. But I was in a meeting the other day and the woman was talking about herself and that she wears baggie clothes because she's heavier and made a comment to me like I wouldn't understand what that was like. I about fell off my chair!! If they only knew how far I've come they would laugh at those statements.

I am still around though and you can get me by email. If you have any questions or just need to vent I am always available.

Oh and if you're looking for a place in Orlando just email me!! Sherri@SherriSellsOrlando.com

I love this place! Thanks everyone for all the support the last two years. I have made such great friends here and changed my life so much.

And my guys are doing great on the program. My husband has even stopped complaining!! Crazy right. They are about 15 pounds from both of their goals. My son loves it. He has such better self-esteem it's wonderful!
