a letter.

Dear Fitness Challenge,

My, how you've changed my life, these last 10 weeks! More than 65 times I've exercised. Countless calories burned. No desserts - I was able to survive Valentines Day, the churros at Disneyland, and even all those cute little pastel foil-wrapped candy bars at Easter. NO SODA, for heaven's sake! No eating has taken place after 7:30pm. Scripture reading has been DAILY for 2 1/2 months now (I should get a trophy just for that one!) Plus countless other challenges achieved, miles run, and nutritional information learned.
Stick with me, my friend - can I call you my friend? You've been good to me thus far, and I sure think about you a lot. Of course, you haven't taken as many pounds from me as I've offered you, but at least there's been enough for friends to start noticing. I thank you for that!
Please give my regards to situps, pushups, fiber and water bottles. They have all become much more familiar to me over the last ten weeks as well. Fruit is becoming one of my closest confidants - who knew we could get along so well?
Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you I'm still hanging in there, and I appreciate all you've done for me. Apparently you were just the right motivation I needed to start making some changes around here.

Thanks again,
Me

Way to go. I really am proud of you. I just feel like I haven't really seen you to tell you. Keept it up, you mihg tjust be translated to because you've read your scriptures and not had a coke!

I am amazed at your abstaining from Diet Coke. Great job! All of our inventory is set to expire in May.

I am sure as soon as that challenge is over the expiring Diet Coke will no longer be a problem. I forsee Shello drinking at least 4 of them the first day after the challenge. She will need a lot of coke to wash down those brownies and chocolate she is planning on having for breakfast , lunch and dinner! LOL!
