It's January 18th and the streak is alive. Some days it has been dicey but I am still going. TJ is right there with me. He is diligent about it and we have motivated each other to stay with it. I think we have a few more streakers still with us but for the most part, they are gone. I don't think there is ever a wrong time to start a streak though. Just because we started at the first of the year, doesn't mean you can't start today. Who knows, in the end, you may outlast me.

I am to the point where I will have to buy new pants. I thought I could make it a few more weeks so that I wouldn't have to buy a size in between. This past weekend, I could take my jeans off without unbuttoning them. Today, I could fit Kallie in my pants with me. No amount of safety pins or belts will help that. Have to do something about it soon. Like tonight!

Weight is not coming off as quickly this round but it is still coming off. I know the whole speech so don't give it to me now. I also know patience is a virtue. Blah, blah, yadda, yadda. I am sticking with it. Don't worry. Just when I think I want to give up, I see something that reminds me why I am on this journey.

Thanks for listening. Now get up and get some water.

Good job on the streaking.

And glad you're not giving up. You're doing a great job...and we all know that its hard work, its daily, hourly, sometimes minute to minute. But you're making the right choices, one choice at a time.
Its never going to be easy, but you realize that and aren't taking your small steps for granted. YOu're making huge progress. Keep being honest with yourself.
