performance: losing 4.2 lb a week

I have never put me first and now its MY time. I was very sick earlier this year and was out of work for 2 months that gave me alot of time to realize that i was putting the wrong things first in my life. Now i go to the gym 5 times a week and i slowly see the weight coming off also a change in my clothes and it feels very good.
I met the man of my dreams who is awesome and supportive and works out with me he is the love of my life.
I also have the bestest friend in the whole world i dont know where i would be with out her when i look around she is never far away she is someone who loves me unconditionally the good days the sad days and even the bad days. So i am on a mission to find the real me under all these layers i know i am in there and have been hiding for a very long time i feel like a butterfly coming from the cocoon.
