The True Value of Friendship

Monday, August 20, 2012

I went through life not knowing what was around the corner until I got there but I do now.

Ever since I joined SparkPeople I have found that there are people out there just like me. I am on a journey to fine the real me again and since I have found this place to be helpful and friendly. I can't ask for better friends then I have here. You can never tell a book by its cover and believe me I have tried.

The true value of friendship is not knowing who will stab you in the back but who will be there with you as you go through a journey to reach your goals. I have found that true friendship is the people that are going through what you are going through and who will help you along the way.

I have found some wonderful people here that I call my best friends and that I can talk to and who will help me when I need it. My journey is a long one and that I plan to finish it no matter how long it takes me and how far I have to go to reach my goal. I want to lose this weigh so that I can finally fit into a dress that I wore when my boyfriend and I started going together, I know that I can do it but I have to start thinking and acting like I really want it and not saying that it will happen over night because I know it won't.

I have a dream and that dream is to be able to look in a mirror and see the old me when I use to weigh 135lbs because it would be heaven on earth if I could get back to that size once and for all no matter what others say. I have put a plan into motion and I have been doing good so far and I hope to be able to continue until I reach that goal.

I have talked to my parents and they are behind me 100% but I wish that my boyfriend was as well but he thinks that I should just give up on my goal and to think about what he wants out of me. That's not me, I have to look out for number one and that's me. My health is always going to come first no matter what he says or thinks.
I love life and plan to live it to the fullest and cross those obstacles when I come to them. I have to do this for me and no body is going to stop me.

    I hate to tell you the obvious, but while freinds are great, don't depend on them. The only true person that can help us or change us is ourself. And if we can't depend on ourself, the why fool ourselves into thinking someone else cares anymore than we do?

    If you are spiritual, then there is one person that does care even more than us, but HE does not run our daily lives, that's left up to us. He helps those that help themselves if ya know what I mean.

    So dig deep, and do it. Keep the faith.

    I wish you luck, but you don't need it. You sound very determined and it seems that you've found great support from your Spark friends. Now it's just a matter of time, hard work and patience. I'll be fighting the fight along with you.
