I am home and soooooo tired! What a busy, busy, fun, relaxing vacation we had! My pup came home with some ribbons and a new certification, we met lots of great people and dogs, and the beach and mountain air were just amazing. How can one be exhausted and refreshed at the same time? I'm not sure, but it feels good!

Tonight at midnight I pick my son up at the airport, tomorrow I spend 6 hours at another dog sport event (and probably 4 more hours Weds and Thurs), Wednesday I take one son to register for college and another for a trade school orientation, and school starts next week! Somewhere in there I promised my daughter a trip to the pool. And in a week my dog starts tracking classes again. And the two gyms (home and not-home) await! It's such an exciting, invigorating, happy time and I am going to dive in HARD to build strength and shed fat in September. Life is good.

consistency is key, not so hard that you injure yourself, steady is very important.

I just wanted to write a quick note to say THANK YOU.
I found your blog yesterday in a search for a story somewhat like mine, a story that I could look to for inspiration as I embark on this journey.
When I clicked on your blog, the first thing that struck me was how similar your "before" picture looks like me. In fact, it looks EXACTLY like me. I am 5'7", 282 pounds and have the same exact shape as you did.
The second thing that struck me, as I started reading your blog from the beginning, is that I have never read any weight loss blog that has spoken to my heart and soul the way yours has (and I have only read the first few entries so far).
I cannot thank you enough for sharing your story. I plan to read it, start to finish, and I'm sure I will look to your beautiful words as motivation and comfort as I work to escape from my own obesity.
Again, I cannot thank you enough.
