....my 13 year old son told me he was proud of me. This definitely gives me the strength to stick with it and rid myself of the final 9lbs.

what a sweet kid, and what a great example you are setting for him - not just about a healthy lifestyle, as important as that is, but also setting a goal and sticking to it and acheiving it is such an important life lesson too.

Aw sweet! I love when the teens say nice things. My 15 year old said "mom you are beautiful" if u knew him that would blow your mind!

That's so sweet. That's the best thing to hear. :)

Wow that's awesome :) You must feel great!

Your son has inspired me to go and tell my Dad I'm proud of him! He's lost a lot of weight and I know he's been trying very hard!

Thanks for all the responses.

My kids are very active- more than I ever was. I always felt like such a hypocrite. How could I stress the importance of a good diet and exercise when I didn't practice what I preached. For the first time in their lives I feel like a good role model and to me that's more important than fitting in a size 4.
I hope everyone finds their inspiration to make their weight loss journey easier,
