    That's soooo cool! What a great motivation to keep on track. I'm sure you would blow him away if he saw you now, but just imagine his face when he sees you in July! emoticon

    How fun that will be. And another great motivator. 70 pounds so far is already great, but imagine another 30 pounds to hit the 100 pound marker. More on top of that is just a huge plus. Set yourself some targets, and focus on your goal. You can do it!!!

    Woohoo!! WTG on your weight loss. Always nice to see progress. This is what helps you get through those times when you want to give up. You will have a lot of fun with your shopping spree later.

Keep it going. You are doing great. emoticon

    I've been having one of those WEEKS where I want to give up - on everything. Someone reminded me that we're all here to support each other. So remember that you CAN do it! We all say it to each other so often, but it's so true! Just think how far you've already come, and know that your body will do what it needs to to take care of itself as long as you do your part to help it along. So whether you lose your next 85 lbs sooner or later than you hope, your body will thank you for helping it as much as you already have.

I'm rambling because I'm sleepy. The point is, you can do it, and we'll all cheer you on!

    Keep going Nikki! Don't give up on yourself. Go back to your first ever blogs and look at pictures of yourself 70lbs heavier...I'm sure it will remind you of how far you've come and how amazing you've done, far too amazing to give up now. It's just one of those days. Tomoerow will be better if you can just get through this one. emoticon

    You've done a great job and come too far to give up now. Sure, you're going to have setbacks and days when you don't feel like exercising or don't want to eat right. If you have a slip up just acknowledge it and then move. One bad day doesn't have to become 2 bad days. Keep it up, you're doing great!

    *sigh* The process is never as much fun as the end goal seems to be. Truth is, you're gonna have rough days even when you're bodacious. You'll just have the advantage of being discouraged/cranky/impatient AND bodacious!

An old friend of mine reminded me that "even people in Hawaii have crappy days sometimes...."

    Look how far you've come! The problem with me the last time was that I had lost 30 pounds and looked "just good enough." I still wanted to lose another 40 but I had become complacent. Don't let yourself get like that! I can tell your goals are important to you wouldn't have come so far if they weren't. I feel that when I'm stuck in the moment visualization really helps. Take care, Rae

    Girl give your brain a smack. You have come this far, do not even think about giving up. You are more than half way there. I know you can do. I know you see the finish line, and I know you want to reach it. Just take it day by day. You just motivated me. Time for me to put my butt in gear.

    Nikki, take it one day at a time. It's normal to get discouraged and tired of all the work, but it is so worth it. It also becomes like second nature and gets easier. Set little goals and don't look at the big picture. You are doing GREAT!

    You said it yourself in your introduction on your page...stay consistent even on bad days!! This must be one of those days, and your goal must be to stay consistent!!!
You have come so far and you look great! How about all those things you can do now...bend over easier, breathe easier? Think of those things!

    You have done so well!!! You don't want to give up now. It sounds more like the depression talking than anything. I'm not sure if you've done anything for your depression, but you might need to deal with that also. Just keep remembering the motivations that your mom has made with you with each of your weight loss goals. It sounds like she has been very supportive of you throughout the process.

And remember you are worth it to keep this up. Your health and long life ahead of you is something you will be able to enjoy. You are making an investment in your future. You will get to live a longer, healthier and hopefully happier life.

It still hurts..

Sunday, January 29, 2012

So, i took my ex boyfriends mom out for dinner tonight for her birthday.. Your probably thinking why?!?! lol.. because shes one of my friends.. b4 me and my x dated i was friend with him and his family for 9 years.

Well i saw him tonight with his new girlfriend.. i was chilling with his mom and he went up stairs with his girl. It still hurts.. I loved that boy so much. I wish i never dated him because i knew deep down inside of me i wasnt ready for a relationship.. i still had issues with myself.. If you cant love yourself.. how could you love someone else? And thats where i was at when i was dating him. Im finally down 65 pounds.. i feel great dont get me wrong.. Theirs alot of good changes in my life after we broke up.. its just that i miss him.. i dont miss the relationship.. i miss my best friend :(

    The end of a relationship is always complicated but it's 100X worse when you also like their family. I'm so sorry that you are still hurting but in time you'll feel wonderful, both mentally and physically, and you'll find someone that loves you and treats you like you deserve to be treated. Keep truckin' and it'll all work itself out. emoticon
