Additional Motivation: A Letter To Me

Hello Self,

I am writing this letter to you today because I know that this point is where you usually start to fall off the wagon, so to speak. What with the 2 salads a day for the last 6 weeks - I get why you might start to crave candy and chips and well...just about anything. But let me remind you of a few things to help keep that motivation fresh.

1. "You look fantastic." People are starting to notice and tell you this all the time.

2. Those fattest fat jeans...are way too big for you. Fold them up and put them away.

3. The size 14s are starting to get too big. How do I know this? Your husband tells you he can see your butt crack every time you bend down now.

4. Speaking of Hubby, he can't get over how "small" (his words) you are getting. He is just amazed and in awe and simply over the moon with pride.

5. You are exercising 5 - 6 times a week with a steady 300 - 350 calorie burn on the cardio alone. you are RUNNING on the treadmill for 6 minutes each time - pushing for more.

6. Your double chin is gone.

7. Your neck is skinnier and you necklace that you bought that just fir at Tiffany's hangs WAY lower.

8. You feel great.

9. You are happier, really, really happier for the first time in a LONG time.

10. You can do this. You can. Keep going.

I just thought I would remind you, in case you forget.

You CAN do it! Way to go!

Now. About those fattest jeans---DO NOT fold them up and put them away! CRUMPLE them up and THROW THEM IN THE TRASH!! There's no going back, and no reason to keep them.
