Check you out Ms. Dee! I'm proud of you for coming in first place! Brian (my husband) and I are in our 7th (?) week of the current challenge. Of course this is my 2nd challenge his first. So far I'm down 10 more pounds and Brian is down 20 pounds since February! Still more to go, but hey we're getting there! Bri's confidence has been boosted so much that he's out today applying for a job! I'm so happy that we decided to do this together.

Talk to you soon - have a good holiday weekend!

Thanks Dee - what a rush! I'm still siked about last night! I can't believe I actually cried...I couldn't help it. I never intended to win....I just needed someone to hold me accountable! I guess the lesson here is to never sell yourself short - huh! And just think - this week I was feeling sooo discouraged that I wanted to give up. Talk about the ultimate rejuvenation of my motivation!

Thank you soo much for coming last night. It meant sooo much having people around me that cared about me...my family and friends (new and old). I didn't expect anyone to come, but I sure am glad that you did! Especially since you weren't feeling good! Feel better today Dee....see you soon.

Trisha
