Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador

This morning I received a pretty cool email. I have been inducted into the “Girl Gone Sporty Ambassador” program. I am so excited to be part of this awesome community #teamstellar.

As an ambassador this is what is expected from me: Our Ambassadors form a network of sporty women who band together to focus on positive health. Studies have shown two things: 1) healthy living is contagious, and 2) healthy living is not just about weight loss. While we recognize that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is important, weight and appearance are not cornerstones of our belief system, and we want to encourage women everywhere to embrace whole health and an attitude of adventure – body, mind, spirit and lifestyle – right where they are now. So excited and honored to be included!

Wanna look into becoming a GGSA.
