I read Mike’s last post and got so emotional, I am so proud of him. He is working so hard to achieve his goal. His strides for success go much deeper than a smaller number on the scale, and it affects me more than you can imagine. People can see that there is more to this guy than meets the eye. That is what I love about Mike.

I am near my goal. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think the real fight is maintaining the magic number once you get there. I’ll need plenty of advice from those of you who have experience in this area. I am 5 pounds away from reaching under 200 pounds. 199?!!! I can’t remember the last time I read that on the scale.

Before and Afters motivate me more than anything.
When Mike and I were dating he got me hooked on the motivational stories from Body for Life.  It’s kind of weird going back through pictures trying to find the fattest pictures of yourself. Sadly I don’t have to go far to find them, they’re actually really easy to find and I have many to choose from. Thinking back to last year when both of these were taken and how I perceived myself then.I had lost sight of who I was because I was content with where I was, but didn’t realize how much of myself I had lost.

Mike bought me the hat in the pic last night and a little house plant to thank me for my support, and to reward me for my own success. Let’s HIT these 5 pounds out of the park!!! Keep fighting friends. It is so worth it.
PS. Someday I want to dance a hip hop number by Tabitha and Napolean from So You Think You Can Dance. I am secretly in love with hip hop music and may or may not choreograph my own routines in my kitchen while washing dishes. “Nappytab” always wear cool hats too 😉
Peace out yo!
