One of the things that has impressed me the most is how Mary took the lessons she learned from her weight loss journey, and applied them to achieving her dream, her passion: to be an author.
The lessons of believing in yourself, perseverance, keeping your focus on your dream, and so much more.
Back in 2010, she told me in an email:

Okay, I promised the links. Mary's story can be downloaded for only 99 cents!! Here's where:
Watching Mary follow her passions and reach her dreams has encouraged me to do the same. Thank you for that, Mary.
From Dr Phil's book: "Having specific, carefully mapped out, vividly envisioned goals is an absolute requirement for success."
My verse for today: "Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord."
