I don’t talk about my weight loss efforts with many people who live near me. Only two of my friends locally know I’m working on weight loss. My greatest “support group” consists of three closest friends who live far away, my husband(well, I guess he’s local, huh? 😛 ) and now….
…. my internet friends!
Yesterday I posted a very realistic view of what this week has been like for me. Not only did I want others to see that they aren’t the only ones that have bad weeks, but I wanted to be honest and upfront with those following my weight loss journey. While I didn’t necessarily expect bad comments, I was encouraged by all the positive comments I received; and I realized last night that I have a small support group out there that is cheering me on.
I so appreciate that. Especially when I’m not your average, “get ‘er done” weight loss person. I’m your slow-and-steady-wins-the-race person and those of you that have commented have accepted me as just that.
So, as I finish up by morning internet time here, let me just say that I am grateful for those who are leaving encouraging comments and even for those who think negative ones and don’t leave them for me. I know I need a good kick in the rear at times, but I’m glad that I can make my baby-step changes, come here to post about the ups and downs and know that you’re all rooting for me. Thank you!!!
I know that I'm rooting for your success, and there are many others who are too.
Keep up the good work!
I've got your back and I know you've got mine.
We are in this together. We need each other to get through this. I know our husbands are here but sometimes we need friends. Hometown friends, far away friends and internet friends.
Slowly but surely you will get there!!
