Success ~ recruited my BFF!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

This past weekend, I took a good long look at myself in the mirror...naked (ugh). Don't get me wrong, I do this on a daily basis but quickly turn my head and put my clothes on... BUT last Sunday, it was different! I critiqued, I turned, I lifted, I cried...and then I told myself that the party is over! I don't want to look like "that" in the mirror anymore!

Baby steps...

So I called up my BFF and finally fessed up to her. I told her my struggles and asked her for help. I couldn't believe how easily she jumped on the band wagon with me!! She's walking beside me for strength and support and it feels great! I need that...I don't get the same feeling of support from my DH...although he means well.

I think I'm on track and that makes me happy. It was time to finally look at my naked self...and I won't shy away from her again!

    CONGRATULATIONS for having the courage to face your demons head on, and for bravely opening up to your friend. Of COURSE she's on board and supportive...she's your BFF! She loves you and wants you to succeed and be healthy and be around for many many years. My BFF is the same way. She's always been thin, I've always been fat...but she is my biggest supporter when it comes to my weight loss.
    So happy that you're feeling stronger and more motivated. When you start to lose that motivation, come back here and re-read all the supportive comments you have gotten. Then shut down that pity party and get moving! :)
    Best of luck to you!!! I'm proud of your success!!!

    Give your BFF a big hug from me! Thanks, sister!

    I am SO glad you reached out to her! Sometimes it's just so hard to ask for help, but then when you do you wonder why you waited so long!


    (Wish they had an emote for the happy dance!)
