I wanted to share a little surprise I found in the back of Jorge's new book. I was read the book cover to cover and was so pleasantly surprised in the Acknowledgments section to find a very sweet shout out to ME! The funny thing about this is that when I very first started the BFC I was SO freaking excited about it I could not sleep one night. I was thinking to myself "I am going to be the best client Jorge Cruise has ever had!!" (Yes, I'm a total dork). Then I thought, so ridiculous, I only have 50 lbs to lose and he has people with hundreds to lose. Then I heard a voice in my head that said "Well then, I'll be the best client he has ever had with 50 lbs to lose!!" and (dork that I am) emphasized it with a fist pump in the air. This was my 3am epiphany... and here is how that paid off:
For me, that little blurp means the world! I was surprised that he would want to include my photo and story in the book to begin with (pg. 16-17 ya'll). And then really honored that he would put me on the back cover. Very cool. But this felt really personal and from the heart, and I really appreciate it. Just so you know, I am not buddies with Jorge (but I have met him a few times now). I am just a dieter who googled "low sugar diets" one day and realized his plan was what I was looking for. I signed up for one of his online classes and later bought the book at B&N just like everyone else. There is nothing special about me or different (except the dork part), and I haven't received any help from Jorge or his team. If I can do this, YOU can do this. The idea that I might inspire someone else, like I had been inspired, is why I agreed to be in the book.
