Sometimes it's not easy to get motivated to workout or go to the gym. But when I am finished, I have NEVER once said, "Gee, I wish I didn't do that."

I'm at work (tying on my phone so please excuse the errors, I can't see what I'm writing) and I see that I have a message on my page. Two lovey ladies have congratulated me on a year of maintance. I nearly started crying.

See I pulled away.from this group in the spring because I was a "failure". I gained back 15 of the 67 pounds I had lost. Then I see that message this am and realized - I have maintained a 50 pound loss. And I am losing again. So thank you. Sometimes you don't know what a little support can mean!

These are important milestones!
