Struggle

Hi Everyone,
I had decided to quit FFF because I was feeling down and extremely discouraged due to a knee injury. My doctor told me not to work out for 3 to 6 weeks. Of course, hearing that really was hard for me to hear. After Sherri B's encouraging words, I walked away saying "I quit." I wrote an email to Dani saying the same thing. Sherri continued with her kind words all day and I was quick to say "I can't do it." She gave me wonderful suggestions and I said "I can't" again and walked away. After knee surgery a few years ago, my doctor said I would be out for at least one year. I knew I wanted to compete at the American Cup and had goals of testing for another black belt. After I cried and licked my wounds, I was back on the mats training hard in three months. I placed 1st in the American Cup and earned my black belt. So thanks to Sherri, I will not quit. Hope she is ready to hear me cry and whine for the next couple of weeks. Alessandra G.
