Janet Couch McQuarrie became a University of Georgia majorette in the early 1980s. That’s when I met her, because my daughter Shelley was on that twirling squad that won the national championship–at the same time the football team won its national title.
Ever since, I have seen Janet annually when the majorettes return to campus and perform during pregame activities for the Homecoming Game.
Janet has encountered–and conquered–many personal challenges. Three months before she reached her 50th birthday, she voluntarily accepted a daunting new challenge–to reshape her body and revitalize her health.

IDENTIFY YOUR BIG CHALLENGE–AND DESIGN A PLAN TO SUCCEED
Janet could have said complacently, “Oh well, not much I can do about the shape I’m in. . .typical for a 50 year old. I’ll just accept the physical changes that keep me from looking like that university majorette I was decades ago.” Instead, she set a goal, took charge, and–like her hero Rocky Balboa–kept fighting until she won.
