I am so proud of you! Look at how far you have come already!
I know you don't think I'm sincere when I say this, but look at me and hear me. I am proud of you. I mean it, don't look away. You're almost a third of the way to your goal and that is huge. You're almost to your 10% mark and that is even more awesome.
You're eating right. I know the cravings are hard and we all love pizza and cookies, but doesn't the salad taste better every time you eat? It's satisfying, right? Remember how slimy the pizza was? And how slimy it made you feel when you ate it? Crisp, fresh salad instead is such an improvement.
And did you see the way Ian grinned when you passed the kendo room last time? That's completely worth it. He's noticed how much faster you're moving and how much easier your exercise is. That's why he pushed you so hard on the levee on Sunday: he thought you could keep up. He's overestimating you, so push yourself a little more and prove him right! Don't get mad, get confident. And keep pushing. I know you can do it and if you can't right now, I know you WILL.
I know you will. I believe you will. And we can do this together. We can. And we will.
