I am starting back up with a challenge, I am one of the KC challengers from 2007 and I am always wondering what Mike would think, not just about fitness, but even about decisions I've made in my life. I've met Mike personally a handful of times, but he made a lasting impression on my life without a doubt. Reading this brought tears to my eyes, but in a good way. :)
OMG. I was just thinking about peach yogurt and tuna fish the other day. Mike never did talk me into that one.
I never got to hug Mike in person. He and I were going to meet at the 2010 Nashville gathering. He told me he wanted to speak with my privately, for us to have some time together. I really wish we could have had that talk, and I, too, also wonder what he would think of my life and decisions. I think he'd sometimes shake his head, but know he'd still love me, and believe that as of late, he'd be proud, which makes me proud.

I'm so happy and proud that a lot of the old gang is back together. I've been thinking about Mike a lot lately. He's with Millie and oh so proud!
Mike, boy he would be disappointed with my last two years, although if he were still here, I may not have gone that path, interesting hey.... He helped me with the demon grog during that tough 3rd challenge, and that is what has bought me back again....
Trying to keep his spirit alive with posting some of his "words of wisdom" on the forums.

Debs, Well hello my Aussie friend. I did indeed start but I did not start until Sunday January 12th, this week will end my 3rd week and going strong at this point. Lost 6lbs the first week, none the second but lost some size.

Woohooo! Way to go Ray!
Keep going mate! Great to have structure again isn't it? Don't forget, if you want a team of stayers, we are on the other thread! ALL THE BEST!
Today is a day I would really like to talk to Uncle Mike. Well... I talked, and believe he listened, but aren't able to get one of his wise and witty replies. Today especially I miss him.
