Me at my goal weight - 6/3/08 (I will get back there again!)
After 30 days of Pump and finally seeing measurable progress!

But what they don't tell you is that dreaming is only half the journey. You have to work hard to make your dreams come true. Happily ever after happens to those who work for it. I'm dreaming of a better body - a stronger one. I'm dreaming of endurance and strength and flexibility. I'm dreaming of a lifetime full of good health. And I'm working to get there.
Along the way, there will be hiccups. Hey, I'm only human. But despite the setbacks and challenges, I will get there. I've been there before, and I like the view. To help motivate me, I've made a list of rewards for my measurable successes.
Starting weight: 177.6 lbs
For every 1 pound lost, I will buy myself fresh flowers for my desk. I'll keep the empty vase on my desk to remind me every day.
For every 7 days I track my food, I will treat myself to a bubble bath, a glass of my favorite wine, and a good book.
For every week with 4 workouts, I will give myself a manicure. If the week includes yoga, I will do a complete spa afternoon/evening.
So, those are my dreams. What are yours? And what are you doing to make them reality?

ďGet Off The Scale! You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.
Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.
Itís true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. Thatís it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Donít give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!Ē

STAND UP by Jessie J (shared by AJ, ANYA_ONION)
If you surround yourself with negative people
You'll never feel settled in or become an equal, no
They'll suppress you of your spirit and rinse you dry of smiles
So reach deep and release your inner child, yeah, yeah
If you let a frown become your normality, yes
You don't set an example for the youth of our humanity
If you spend every day wishing for the next to come
Aged and lifeless is what, yes, you'll become, yeah, yeah
So ignore the bad and the good will soon come
Don't think second best, be number one
Spread some love, don't give to receive
Strive to be happy and live to believe

I hope you'll get to see some of your gymnastics, Kharah.
