Thank you!

I just want thank all of you for the encouraging and supporting comments! I GREATLY APPRECIATE them. Although, I feel great and I am so pleased with my progress this process is still so overwhelming and I still have those doubts hidden in the back of my mind that just b/c I lose the fat I am pretty certain I will not look that good in a bikini and maybe I have no business doing something like this.

I do my best to keep those thoughts in the BACK of my mind but sometimes they creep on up.

I believe 100% that I can drop the fat but that is just part of the equation. Actually getting into a skimpy bikini and standing on a stage is TERRIFYING!! I am going to do it but when it comes down to it I am not sure how I will muster the courage to do so. I am hoping in 18 1/2 weeks when I have the the final product that I will feel differently.

Anyway, I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to those that leave comments on my blog and to those that give me compliments in person. You have no idea how it moves those doubts oh so slightly a tad further back in my mind.

When you start to get those neg. thoughts or feelings ... think of it like it's a bug on your shoulder and FLICK-IT-OFF, that helps me alot. Girl you are an insparation like no other. It takes BIG stepts to do what you are doing. I don't even know you and I am so proud of you I can only imagine how proud your family is of you. Hardwork ALWAYS pays off in the end. xoxox

Everyone has thoughts like that from time to time. I have always been in relatively good shape and still questioned myself, and I didn't even have to work as long at it as you do. It's a GREAT feeling and you will love it. Your body will change a lot in these next 4 months! The thoughts about the skimpy bikini and hooker heels on stage was always in the back of my head too, but I think you'll get a great rush out of it, even if you never do it again, you can look back and say you did it...

The view from the top...

I have been following your blog for the past year or so and I just felt compelled to make a comment and tell you how encouraging your progress is to me! I, too am a mother of 2 and am trying to lose weight to where I was a long time ago! Your progress has definitely been an inspiration! Keep it up! And thanks for sharing!
