Day 9

It has been a couple of days since my last update (oh that sounded like I should be going to church). Today is weigh in #1 and I am down 3 lbs (insert cheer here). That means a total of 12 lbs total since I started the quest last November (3 lbs for the New Years Challenge). Which means my first goal of 2013 (lose 3 lbs by end of the month) has been ACHEIVED!!!

Our challenge this week was to write a letter to ourselves from 2014… like the Brad Paisley song, If I Could Write A Letter To Me (or something along that line). I have written this over and over in my head, but putting it onto paper is a little more daunting, because of that negative voice saying “well what if you don’t reach these goals”. I guess that is the real challenge 🙂 So here it goes….

Dear Margo,
2013 was another awesome year! You worked hard and you and your family have shined through this year. Your health is improved, your activity levels have improved and most importantly of all your family is happy and healthy! Congratulations on your first (May), second (July) and third (September) half-marathons this year. This is a wonderful acheivement and your body feels great after all that hard work. Your family is awesome, John and the kids have been with you through all of this and have been a constant source of encouragement and I know that you are as proud of them as they are of you. You have surrounded yourself with positive, wonderful people. You have always known that your family is wonderful, and your relationships with them continue to grow stronger, now if you could just work on living closer to them that would be even awesomer 🙂 Your support groups have continued to grow, it is amazing that you have not met many of these people in person, yet you feel like you have known them forever, and you know that you can count on them for the encouragement and support you need, these are true friendships. There was some ups and downs in 2013 however even with a few steps backwards, we are much further ahead in 2014.
Keep up the great work. Believe in yourself. Love your family. Smile and know that you are a wonderful person.
