  1. Dear David with an “i”, 🙂

    Hi, my name is Sharon and I am the cast member from the 3rd episode of “HEAVY”. I stumbled upon your site accidentally; but, was pleasantly surprised to read your summary of Ashley & I’s episode. You showed great insight into the “inside track” of our journey! I want to personally thank you for your encouragement and support as we both continue towards reaching our goal weight.

    I laughed when you described Ashley as being in “beast mode.” I’m going to have to remember that! 🙂 She could definitely run circles around me… which motivated me to push myself harder so that I wouldn’t be left too far behind! I think I motivated her because she couldn’t possibly let someone 20 years older and 100 pounds heavier out-do her! She is fiercely competitive! LOL!

    You mentioned how we were a good match… and I have to say that there wasn’t another person that I would have wanted to be paired with. We really did bond… and we are still very close. She actually has moved only 2 miles from my home, so we are now able to workout together! She’s very busy with work and her new boyfriend, but I am thankful that we are able to see each other!

    After 8 months, I have lost 140 pounds! Ashley has lost 100 pounds. We’re both working hard to reach our goal weight… we don’t want to stop short!

    I have to admit that one of my favorite scenes in the show was the bicycle scene too! It was impossible to wipe the smile off my face once I got going on that bike! I actually rode 8 miles that day and burned almost 500 calories!

    One of the best moments for me was when my oldest son came home from college and we went on a bike ride together. We stopped and played a game of basketball (in which he let me shoot until I made 6 baskets!) Afterwards, my son said, “Momma, this is one of the most enjoyable days I have ever spent with you!” I was thinking… “really? because I can remember lots of baseball and football games I’ve spent… watching you.” Then I got it. I was the spectator… and on this day, I was PARTICIPATING. I was interacting and actually being part of my son’s life. It was an amazing day. I NEVER want to lose that! 🙂

    So, David, thank you for your kind words! What a wonderful gift I stumbled upon this evening!

    Hugs & Sweet Blessings,
    Sharon
