So, two weeks ago I got below 200. I weighed in at 199.6. Quite an accomplishment. I did not hit it on my birthday, but I got there anyway. The real question is, did I stay there? We will find out that answer today. After writing this blog for as long as I have, it sometimes gets hard to come up with something fresh and new. I had an idea to make this a little more interesting.

I am told this blog has many loyal readers and followers. I would like to hear from some of you who may have questions or concerns about your own weight loss and would like to hear from someone else who is going through the same thing. Think of it as a virtual support group. It is an open forum, Q&A where you are free to ask anything you want.

You can email me directly at Ask any question you may have, and I will post that question along with my response in the next week’s blog. I will only be posting the question and answer, your identity will be kept private.

I think this could be a fun little exercise. This is not meant to be a replacement of any programs that you are currently involved in. I am not licensed as a counselor or therapist, nor do I pretend to be one. I will be happy to share my insights with you and assist you as best as I can with your own weight loss journey.

I am not here to judge you either. I am only here to share my thoughts and ideas with you. I would highly recommend that anything we may discuss regarding your own journey be discussed with your professional of choice. You can talk to your health coach, primary care physician, physical therapist, trainer or any other person you see regarding your health and wellness.

The second thing I wanted to do is to introduce you to someone. Lisa Long has joined our staff at Fusion Rehab and Wellness as our personal trainer.

Lisa has a BS in Medical Technology from Elon University. She is certified as a personal trainer through the International Sports Science Administration and is our Rock Steady Boxing Coach. She enjoys helping clients who live with Parkinson’s Disease be the best they can be through functional movement fitness that includes intense circuit-based training.

Lisa believes exercise is a celebration of what your body can do, not a punishment for what you ate. Lisa has been living with Type 1 diabetes for 51 years as well as rheumatoid arthritis and she is a cancer survivor. She is an example of how exercise can benefit your well-being and encourages her clients to exceed their goals.

When Lisa is not in the gym she enjoys cooking and baking. She can also be seen at Mary Washington Hospital doing Pet Therapy with her Old English Sheepdog Bentley. She is very passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and is ready to help any of you achieve your healthy lifestyle goals.

So, hopefully some of you will take the time to send me an e-mail so we can begin having some meaningful discussions. You may also email me if you are interested in setting up an appointment with Lisa to assist you in your training. We are all a part of our wellness community. Let’s help each other out.

As always, I wish you all a great week. Written by: Craig Repanshek
