Gym Support!

Gym Support!

Summertime is here and it brings a lot of needed babysitting support. We (myself and fellow weight-loss bloggers) talk a lot about what works for us, what DOESN’T work for us, good & bad foods, good & bads days…. it’s a lot. But what I thought of this morning while weighing in and figuring out the day was how much I am truly supported on my journey. There is not a day that goes by that I am not supported in one way or another by hubby, son, family friend or life-long BFF while I make this trek to a healthier me. So as I sit here planning the day… wondering if indeed I will make it to the gym amongst my myriad of duties today; I’m remembering to be grateful.

So to my husband Jack: you are the most fantastic man I know. You have loved me for nearly 23 years and supported me throughout weight ranges of 135-215!! You learned the hard way how to help me (or not) when I struggled with my issues! Mostly, however you have been there… day in, day out, and never leaving. For that, I will forever be grateful. I love you!

To my dear BFF Karen Schmautz (of the fabulous blog “Yes, Chef!”) Thank you for 20+ years of friendship. For sharing your “couch” with me through many tears and much laughter. Your enduring friendship and love have meant the world to me and I am blessed to call you friend.

To my son Noah, & big Bro’ Christian: you two have given me so many reasons (mostly good! LOL) to understand unconditional love. It wasn’t something I understood as I do now, until you both entered my life. Thank you. My love for you will always be the shining bright spot in my life. You and your father have made me truly happy.

Lastly, my Father in Heaven who gave me a new life. Who helped me understand that even on the darkest of days, I am never alone.



Just WOw!!

Just WOw!!

Hi Everyone!! It’s been a whirlwind week; but I survived! In the last seven days I’ve been to N. California to help my bestie with her daughter’s wedding shower, managed to stay below the 200 mark on my weight loss goals, find out someone I love may relocate to Cali and also (although overwhelmed) realized that I can do this thing called life. In part, thanks to many of you for your friendship, love, support and blog encouragement from fellow travellers on the journey of change. I’ll be posting several photos with brief descriptions. They say sometimes a picture is worth a hundred words; I hope so….

Have a blessed day!
