Trying to stay motivated...

A letter to my body:

So, here we are, body. 50 lbs lost. No, we're not done. We will never be "done." But can you work with me a little bit here? I know you'd rather sleep than exercise, and eat at McDonald's instead of cooking a healthy meal. I don't care. We're not even halfway done yet! Just because people are noticing the changes you're going through (I'm sure you like the new nickname the girls have for me at work: Skinny Minnie), but we're still obese! Yes, I know, your BMI has lowered from 42 to 35, and that's great! But what about 30? 25? If we keep going, we can be healthier than ever! Think about how good you will look! On the beach, going out, special occasions...the possibilities are endless in a healthy world! So can you please get through 3 hours a week of sweating and discomfort and skip that donut? For me? I promise, it will be all worth it. Don't you want to set a good example for your children? Do you want them to be obese, too? And look at your husband, Chet! Doesn't he look and feel better 25 lbs lighter? Yes, I know it took no effort, since we make all the meals, and that's frustrating...but still! At least we know he's in it for the long haul, too! So let's get on the same page, body. We need to continue to stay on track with diet & exercise, and we can't use the holidays as an excuse! Remember how good that "skinny" thanksgiving dish was? No one knew it was healthy! We can have it both ways! But I need you on my side. Capiche?

Forever yours (literally),
