Here is some of what Tenille shared with us:
“I have enjoyed the journey over the past eight weeks and it has helped me feel more connected to my body and mind. Reconnecting with myself through the love letter we wrote and also with my community (Epic teammates). I enjoyed hearing others share their experiences along their journeys. Watching and listening to us talk about our jeans at try on day was also eye-opening.
I felt great being able to zip up my own jeans and also felt such excitement for my fellow teammates. Seeing them working so hard and achieving their own goals was awesome! This journey felt much more emotional than I thought it would be. I really noticed a change in my moods with the different foods I was putting into my body. I feel I didn’t take the time before to realize and write down all my emotions. I started journaling again after our Destress Techniques class and it’s helped me to notice all my mood swings and how much I needed to focus more on destressing for myself and my family.
Kindness is simply helping some feel less alone and the kindness Madison and my fellow teammates have shown has been priceless. I have read a few quotes on this journey that have really stuck with me:
“if you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.”
“Many have an image of me, few get the picture.”
“The vibes you put out into the world is a reflection of who you are inside. Make them kind. Make them loving. Make them bright and filled with rainbows.”
“If you quit now, you’ll end up right back where you first began. And when you first began, you were desperate to be where you are right now. Keep going!!”
Thank you to the Epic Team for all of the love and dedication to us getting 1% better every day!”
