love letters

Dear Lithe,
This past January depression set it. Single, cold, and overweight. I came back from a family vacation and was the heaviest I had ever been and felt like I couldn't even walk a mile. I have been taking Lithe classes on and off since 2011 but as of January hadn't gone in a year and figured Id give it another shot. Since then my whole life as completely turned around and I owe it all to you.

For starters I love my lithe friends. From morning til night we text about what classes were taking and remind eachother what each class entails. I love walking into class and seeing so many familiar faces smiling and waving. Keeps me motivated and excited to workout everyday!

Next, I love the staff. From Lauren to Danielle to Jonathan and everyone in between, everyone at Lithe makes me feel great! Always there to answer questions and listen to me talk about nonsense ( even if they dont care!) Everyone is so passionate and knowledgeable  and they all do their best to make Lithe a welcoming environment.

Finally, I love me. I have never felt more alive and good about myself than I do right now.  I was Lithing 4-5 times a week and since the challenges started I have upped it to 5-6 ( I hit 7 once!) I would have never thought I would actually look forward to my workout but I do every single day. I get stressed if I have to miss a day and try my best to change plans to work around lithe, I have even cancelled dates! There is no better feeling in the world than completing a class especially a barre focused class. Anyone who knows me knows how terrified I was of the barre in the beginning, now I get excited because I know how good it feels when Im done!

I would love to end this with telling you that I have now have a six pack and have lost 20 lbs since January but I cant. I can tell you that I have realized that being happy with my  body is NOT about the number on the scale but about the smile  I give my reflection every single morning. I am so proud of the woman I have become both physically and mentally and I owe it to Lithe. Thank you for being a great boyfriend, an awesome best friend, and a second family. I love you Lithe!

Jill, what an awesome mindset and message. Congrats on completing (and runner-upping) the spring challenge!

This makes me so happy to read and is why I love the lithe community so much. Congrats on all your progress Jill and I love how healthy your thought process is!! It makes me want to be one of your lithe friends :-)

This is so great! I am so proud of you Jilly!

Yay Jill! Thanks for all of your twitter posts!

I love running into you before/during/after class (and am glad we're on approximately the same schedule), and that Lithe has helped you turn things around the last couple of months. Thank you for sharing your story with us!
