I am a very lucky girl.
If I was feeling down about my weight loss progress, the love and support of my friends, family, and blog readers has certainly helped to turn things around. Thank you to everyone who commented here and on Facebook – your support means a lot.
I saw this Weight Watchers commercial and I want to share it because I really love it. Not because it’s promoting WW, but because I think it sums up exactly the mindset I should be in.
I had an opportunity to spend some time with my friend Ivy this weekend. She lives out-of-town, so we don’t get to see each other very often. Ivy has been going through her own road to healthy and is looking great. I’m so proud of her for the hard work she had put in—walking, biking, boot camp workouts—she is so inspiring. We talked about how I was feeling about my weight loss and the difficulties I have been having. We both agreed that I’m not ready to give up, but that I definitely need to stop being so hard on myself (so not easy for me).
Having a community of people around me that understand what I’m going through—helping to celebrate the ups and helping to soothe me during the downs—is an amazing feeling. It makes me feel like I can accomplish anything and that I’m really not alone in all this.
So, thank you friends—you have inspired me more than you know. 🙂
