I don't know that song (#38). This was a good one for you--the falling in love part always seems dumb to me but it fits you so well! :) You'll get those last 20 pounds, don't you worry. You are SO STRONG.

You fell in love? Like past tense? You are still falling!!! ;) Love it!

Totally agree with Emily. You will meet your goal on your weight loss journey because you are not a quitter! This is your life and now that you are in control it's all yours to get the job done! Go April!!!
