Default My Dad is so awesome!!!

Today my dad caught me on my way home from a jog and he was asking me about what I've been doing. I told him I've lost nine pounds, and I'm working on losing 133.

He said that when I lose a hundred, he'll take me to the bike shop and buy me any bike I want so I can ride with him and train to do races and stuff. The only stipulation is that the bike can't be nicer and cost more than his, but he has a four thousand dollar bike so that's nothing.

I'm so determined now.

One for every ten pounds lost!

Wow, that's so awesome!! Yay for having cool, supportive dads. Good luck to you, enjoy earning that fab reward!

I believe in you. I believe in your authenticity, your uniqueness, your intensity, your wildness. I love your restlessness and your hunger. You possess the energy that, if unleashed, could transform, inspire and heal the world.

Awe, nice Dad! That's great! I've heard of a couple dads doing exactly that, actually. It's way of saying "keep going" and "keep motivated".

Thumbs up, Dad!
