I am in AWE!!!

If I ever had any doubt I can achieve this I no longer do. I cannot get over the support I have recieved from the FABULOUS comments on my blog and others who have read my blog and sent me an e-mail. Simply AMAZED!!!

As I have heard from others who have or are in the process of doing an event like this that there will be those dream stealers out there but I won't let them ruin my "can do attitude".

I seriously cannot get over the positive comments I have gotten so far and I haven't even told that many people. Actually, very few at this point. I will have to let the word get out slowly as I make more progress probably. Tears came to my eyes as I was reading my blog comments last night, really they did. I couldn't get over it. The majority of the comments came from people that I don't even know personally but they believe even me anyway. WOW!!!

By the way, a side note. I am still in my back to school challenge with Phit-N-Phat. I am down 3 pounds so far and hope to be down a couple more by the end of the challenge next Saturday, Sept. 19th. Even though it isn't many pounds I can see the changes in the mirror. I hope they will be noticeable in the pictures. The best news of all is that J is down 16 pounds so far. YEA!! He is ROCKIN'!

Thanks again for the comments. I appreciate them more than you know.

My husband and I have always noticed that sometimes "strangers" are much more helpful and have more confidence in us that those we have known our entire lives!!!

Jess is so right, Good luck to my friend I've STILL NEVER MET, but feel like I've known forever. You will so rock those judges. : )

Dawn, I think this is an incredible goal! And I have all the confidence in the world that you can achieve it! I think you proved that with the marathon. That whatever you put your mind to CAN be achieved. It just takes time and dedication. You can do it! What a fantastic role model you are!

You and J are doing so awesome with the BTS challenge. We only have a week left...EEK! Time to work hard this week!

Also, I'm super impressed with your dedication. I know you'll do great with this new venture.

Hope to see you this weekend....

Dawn - you sound like me! I have literally been moved to holding back tears with my blogger family too! That is what we are here for. It is funny how sometimes strangers that are like minded can keep you going- unfortunately dream stealers do exist but it's so much easier to weed them out or ignore them when you dont know them in real life!

I am SO EXCITED to hear of these posititve othyers, and to follow this journey with you and I am glad you have taken the first step by putting it out there. These are the same people that will motivate you and kick your butt when you feel like giving up. Keep us posted!
