OWiS #31 (mojo included)

31 07 2010

Dear Body,

Wow 7 months you’ve been doing this. Can you believe it? I know sometimes I look in the mirror and I have a hard time liking what I see looking back but can I just say you are amazing. You get up every morning and you move with purpose. You’re sore and tired and most days you just want to swim in a vat of ice cream. Every morning you stretch the soreness away and think “I’ll sleep later” and then you decide how you’re going to kick ass for the day. Every thing you do you do with determination and with power. Here we are 7 months later and 70 pounds lighter!

I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this journey.

Love Tara

7 months…amazing. 70 pounds…absolutely awesome!

Sheer determination. 7 months would have gone by regardless, you chose the rest.

If it wasn’t for you, Tara, there wouldn’t be an awesome!

I LOVE that you write your body a letter on WI day every week. AWESOME weigh-in and way to give your body props even though sometimes you struggle with what you see in the mirror. Sometimes it takes the brain/heart a while to catch up with the body (for me, anyways), but you’ll get there. In the meantime, keep kickin’ it the way you are!
