Thankful for the support of the people in my life

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Today I am feeling very thankful for my friends and family. My parents have done a lot to encourage me. Providing me with the things I need in order to succeed in my weight loss. They encouraged me when I lost and comforted me when I gained. My sisters have been wonderful as well. Coming up with ways to encourage me. They even offered to go get their noses pierced with me when I lost 20 pounds. I am now feeling really thankful to my best friends. Usually I feel like my friends are bad influences on me. Always wanting to go out to eat and do unhealthy stuff. But this time it has been different. My best friend offered to run a 5k with me when I start running again. Then today I was talking to the "guy friend" I have mentioned in a couple of these blogs. He mentioned he has started running and exercising more and that he plans on getting in shape. I want to get in shape too and hopefully we will both be healthier when fall comes. Usually guys kinda make me feel crappy about myself and that is why I want to lose weight. But instead he believes in me and makes me want to live up to my potential because of it. I am just feeling really grateful and motivated because of the support of the people in my life right now. I am feeling happy today and plan on funneling this positive energy into my workout today :)
