i need help.

Saturday, January 17, 2009

i want to just thank you all for continuing to read my blogs, comment on my pages... your support means the world to me. there hasnt been a day on spark where i have logged in at some point and not gotten teary. whether its over someone's blog, or comments left on my page, or something on the message boards.
knowing that i am not in this alone is probably the only reason i am still continuing on this journey. knowing that there is another woman sitting in another city, another town, another state, and sometimes even another country who feels exactly the way i do.. well, it eases some of the pain of being lonely.

you guys support me, motivate me, make me laugh, make me think, make me a better person in so many different ways daily. my world has been opened up and even though i may never get to meet most of you, you have touched my life and changed it so much for the better. every single one of you.

everytime i think about giving up (and believe me, there have been a lot despite what you may think) i log in and see you guys still plodding on, despite the setbacks, despite the stupid scale, despite life.
so thank you all..

now i need your help.
i need you to reach your arms out and hug yourself.
its from me.
thank you.
seriously. all of you. thank you so much for being there.
i dont say it often, but i mean it every day.

now i am going to go make those cinnamon raisin bites and also a healthy soup with VELVEETA cheese. we'll see if i can stop myself from eating the whole damn brick.
its got ham and chicken stock in it, but i am omitting those. with those, it was 115 calories for 3/4 cup. without those, it is even lower. i hope its good!!
im seeing my ma tomorrow and i like to take up things ive made to get her opinion.

    You need to post a warning that we need kleenex when reading your blog. *sniff* emoticon

    Thank you for sharing with us. I can fully understand what you are saying. I want to thank you for your comments on my blogs, as well. You comments on my "what am I willing to give up?" statement and you made me think. I have to stop thinking in the negative and look at this as a positive. I am improving my life. I can't change the past, but I can change today and the future. Thanks so much for caring and good luck to you on your journey as well. emoticon

    Thanks for the hug! You are one of the most inspiring people I know and I so look forward to reading your blogs. You and I think alot alike and I relate to your stories and your feelings. What I like about you is the fact that you are so honest with yourself and that honesty shines in your blogs.

    I know that this journey is not easy. But the fact that we are all in it together seems to make it much more pleasant. I am proud to call you a friend, Dee. Thanks for being there for me too!

    Your dogs are adorable.

    I agree, there are so many days when I log on to SparkPeople and am in tears from what others share so freely ... their stories, their support, their friendship.

    I've only recently "met" you here. And to be honest ... I saw your sweet little dog on all these blogs that I visit and I thought, she gives such great support!! I've gotta go see what she's all about! I really am touched by all that you offer to others.

    I hope the soup went well!! Any soup involving cheese has GOT to be GREAT!!

    Thank you, Dee! For all of your support, motivation, kind thoughts and for caring. Thank you for being you and letting us all in on your life and sharing your journey with us. It motivates me everytime I read your blog or comments on my blog. You are a great woman! Your blog made me get misty-eyed as well. I try to explain to other people the connection that can be found on Sparkpeople, but it can't really be explained until people experience it for themselves.

    I hope that your soup turns out great, and your cinna-bite things sound great! Thanks for EVERYTHING Dee!

    It is amazing that strangers from all over can have such an impact on one another. Daily, I am touched by people like you. Sparkpeople is a valuable tool which provides motivation, support & access to our spark buddies. Something to remember, we've been given tools & support, but it takes determination, dedication & diligence too. You've got everything to succeed! Something else you have is a generous heart. Thank you for the heartfelt message.

    Dangit, I'm all weepy eyed. I hope you realize that you do the same thing for me. Reading your blogs and the responses to mine always brightens my day. I hope you realize that although you may be by yourself, you are NEVER alone in the way you feel. We all have similar struggles and ups and downs. I'm just incredibly thankful for Spark that brought us all together in one forum to support each other.
    And after getting all teary-eyed, I looked back up at the picture of your dog with the antlers on and....well I had to laugh. *grin* Your dog is SO CUTE!!!

    You take really good care of yourself, and we are ALWAYS there for you.
