A Letter From Me, To Me

A Letter From Me, To Me!
The “homework” this week from the New Year’s Weight Loss Challenge at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans, was to write yourself a letter from the future i.e. next year.  Here’s my letter From Me, To Me!
Dear Me!
I am SO proud of you!  Let’s take a look back at your accomplishments this year.
You did a great job in getting healthier this year.  You managed to lose weight, get toned and you walked your @$$ off – almost literally!  See what joining Planet Fitness did for you!  Yes, I know you enjoy being outside, especially in the summer months, but it’s just not quite the same as getting in a good workout at the gym.  You managed to use several new pieces of exercise equipment too, and didn’t just stick with the trusty treadmill.
I loved how you took some of your favorite recipes (even those family recipes that have been passed down), and modified them – healthier, but still tasty and enjoyable.
I’m very proud of the way you encouraged several of your co-workers to become healthier.  You’ve been a great friend to them on myfitnesspal, showing encouragement and giving them a little nudge when they have needed it.  They also have given you nudges here and there – and that is a GOOD thing!  I know you can see the advantages of writing down your food and exercise and tracking.  Keep at it, even though you are where you want to be weight wise – you KNOW how easy it is for the weight to start creeping back on, and once it starts creeping, it comes back quicker.
You and Rusty just celebrated your 30th anniversary! CONGRATS. In this day and age, that is reason to celebrate! I know you both will enjoy the anniversary vacation you have planned.  I can’t wait to see you in your new bathing suit, be sure to get a picture of the two of you on the beach.
Here you are, looking towards the future.  You will turn 50 this year!! 50!!!!  Stay focused – the best is YET to come girl!!
Signed,
Me !

Love your letter, Suz! With the goals we have for 2013, I have full faith we'll live up to our FitBy50 team name this year. :)

Thank you for visiting my blog. I was beginning to think I was the only one reading it.
I hope 2014 is what you expect it to be.
