My husband and I are on the same team with the same goal of winning, and our accountability has been tremendous. We ask each other every day when the other plans to work out, we keep each other accountable with making healthy meals and encouraging each other when we’ve lost weight. We’ve even set rewards for each milestone of weight loss!

I automatically thought of the daily e-mails that Amber Barney (my sister) and I receive from our dad! I am going to copy and paste one below that he sent us last week. Cade and Maren who are mentioned in the e-mail are Amber’s kids:
“Well good morning girls, hope your day is going well.
Little Maren, Cade and I have been strategizing again. Great things are in store for you both. With us behind you, you can’t lose. You can lose weight, but you can’t lose the contest. I don’t want any misunderstanding here.
Little Maren says, Go Mommy!!!, Go Aunt Tee Tee!!!, You can do this!!! She is so blasted cute.
Little Cader says, Hey guys you look good in your workout outfits, did your husbands get those for you?, Let’s do this for science!!!!!!!
This week, we want you to tote that bag and tote that whatever. If someone is walking into the gym, offer to carry their gym bag for them. It will add to your workout and they won’t even know you’re doing you a favor instead of them. Sneaky!!!
Thought for the day: There once was a snowman who was big and robust. He stood in the sun one day until there was none. At the end of the day he evaluated his condition as a puddle of water and thought about what he once was.
Not to imply you are big and robust but you too will be able to look back and see the change. You’re going to do this, I just know it.
Your Mom and I are very proud of you both,
Love ya much
