Dear Readers,

This past week was one of the most fabulous ever. EVER. I got the role of Cinderella in the spring musical, and I’m totally thrilled. I’ll remind you closer to time, but you should definitely come see it!

Now, as if being Cinderella wasn’t fabulous enough, my mom came to our P.E. class this week as well. Not for a lesson, but to weigh everyone and check their progress. Would you like to know how much I’ve lost since the last time they came to weigh us? I’d be delighted to tell you because I am oh so totally thrilled. FIFTEEN POUNDS! I have seriously lost fifteen pounds. I am so so so SO excited! I’m halfway to my goal, and I’m right on track for my weight loss to month ratio. I feel great about myself and really confident too. I’m going prom dress shopping this weekend and I can’t wait to find one!

I don’t claim to be perfect, and I’ve messed up a few times since beginning my healthy lifestyle. But the fact is, I’ve realized that I can’t be so caught up in hating on myself for messing up that I don’t see the progress I’ve made so far. I never thought I could motivate myself to do this, and the fact that I am on my way to being a healthier me is awesome. I have stopped viewing this as a temporary thing, a diet to lose some weight and then go back to my normal habits, and I now see this as a lifestyle. This is the new me and I don’t plan on going back. If I can do this, so can you, readers. Be encouraged, be excited, be extraordinary. I believe you can do this!

I can’t wait to show you my dress, wish me luck as I search this weekend!

-Allie ☺
