I have such an amazing support group! Last night Tom and I went to a class down at St Marks given by a therapist who has had GB. It was very informative and I got to impress everyone with the amount of weight I have lost which is always fun for me! One of the big things I noticed when listening to other peoples stories was how much easier this journey is when you have support in your everyday life. We talked a lot about hazards that come up all the time and how basically society as a whole is setting us up to fail, but if we know how to handle those hazards we can overcome them. For me, one of the biggest ways to fight those hazards is to rely on those who are in my corner cheering me on! I realize that ultimately it comes down to my own choices but the more people I have lifting me up and encouraging me, the easier it is to make the right choice! Obstacles are placed before me every day, food is EVERYWHERE but all it takes is a "you look great!" Or "i'm so proud of you!" from someone to help me kick the crap outta those obstacles! So, to everyone who is in my corner (and not to brag, but that is A LOT) thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the best darn jock straps in the world!! I love you all!!
