5 days...REALLY?

I want to take a minute to thank ALL of you for the wonderful and encouraging comments you are leaving on my blog. MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!!

I posted this on my Phit-N-Phat journal that I post to almost daily which is like my electronic diary basically. I wanted to share these thoughts with blog world too.

So last night J and I were on our way home from a college baseball game and I looked at him and started laughing and said "In 5 days I am going to stand on stage in a BIKINI!" "I am a working mother of two kids who was miserable in my body for 12 years and started a diet at least every other Monday and NOW I am about to stand on stage in a bikini." REALLY? Is this really me? I just can't wrap my mind around it. I know I have prepped for this for 27 weeks now but as of today it is only 5 days away and it is about to happen. I simply cannot believe it.

My weight dropped to 128.4 yesterday morning and I was in awe. Just never dreamed in my life I would see a number like that. Then I just looked in the mirror at my small somewhat muscular frame and just starred at myself. This is my body. This is ME! It almost feels like a long dream, it really does.

I am so excited for the whole experience and to be able to do this with what I consider true friends who are all so AWESOME and who are achieving their goals and dreams is just so surreal.

I truly am in awe of my accomplishment.

I'm so proud of you! You're amazing! I honestly thought yesterday, "I wonder if I could do that? I wonder what she ate and what she did and if I could do it?". You are such a great influence!
