Letter From the Future

Dear Michelle,

Here we are again, taking a look back at what a great job we have done with our life. I honestly can’t get over how we have blossomed and at the same time it does make me a bit sad that it took 38 years to be this happy in our own skin but what can we do? As one of the greatest lessons we have learned these past two years is that there is no need to live in the past, it so much better to live in the present and look forward to the future.

2012 started with one singular resolution but there were so many goals floating in your head, and at the time it felt very overwhelming but you got a handle on them and weeded through all of them and only kept the important ones. For example you participated in a few major events. You didn’t let finances stop you. We have always wanted to do manor event but always worried about the registration fee. You have learned that we can’t always worry about money, we have lived our entire adult like broke, might as well enjoy it. The good thing is that a lot more meals were cooked at home and a lot of lunches taken to work that it freed up a few dollars to play with.

On to the major accomplishment of 212, you rocked your resolution. You became a Points Plus expert and met your weight goal. You rewarded yourself with that tattoo you’ve been wanting for the past 10 years. It was true, the tattoo has so much meaning and it looks great.

I want to leave you with one more word of encouragement; Life at this weight is so AWSOME! And I can’t wait for when we meet. You can’t even imagine how happy we are, the happiness you are feeling now doesn’t even compare.

Love ya,
Me ‘13
