I am infinitely thankful for the support that I have. It really has been paramount in my success. My husband is by my side, encouraging me to make better decisions while eating and sometimes literally pushing me out of bed so I dont skip a morning workout. My in laws are the most loving and supportive parents I could ever ask for. I know that they would do literally anything to make me successful, including making healthier food when I am around. And keeping me away from bread. My amazing cousin Kristen is amazing. I can't even use real words to describe what she has meant to me. My Aunts and Uncles and Grandma always send words of encouragement my way and make me feel like a million bucks. My friends dont pressure me to make bad choices, and then there are you.
You guys are amazeballs.
I dont think I would be 50 lbs down without you. Every like or comment or email I get keeps me going. I dont want to let you down, so I keep going. Your support means so so so much to me and I can't even describe in words what you mean to me.
As you probably know, I am training to run a half marathon. A friend of mine messaged me after I announced it and asked if she could run it with me. I was ecstatic to have someone by my side, and pushing me along the way. Through her I have gotten to know her husband a little bit, and he has also gone through his own journey. We were talking about the half marathon and he told me that the day of the race his family would be out there with bells on, signs and shirts and all, cheering us on. That they were so proud of both of us, and I got weepy. (I get weepy a lot...) (I am weepy typing this...) I cant even describe what it felt like to know that there will be people cheering for us at the finish line. I figured I would bring my husband, but it didn't cross my mind that she would be bringing a bunch of people! Knowing that all those people are there for me, encouraging me, means so much.
So before I ruin the key board with my tears, I am going to leave you with this. If you are struggling, find support. Write a blog. Connect with someone else on this journey. Email ME! I promise I care so much about you and what you are going through and I really want to help you. It is the least I can do with everything you have done for me in the last year.
So thank you.
Weepy girl - out :D
