My BFF is absolutely the best. She is supportive, honest, funny, sings made up songs even though .. she can't really sing ... really. We have been friends for 30 years. She knows everything about me and loves me any way.
We met because of our boys being in kindergarten together. Then she started attending a Weight Watchers meeting I was the leader of. Yep ... I was successful at losing 20 pounds through WW and then became a sought after leader with 4 community meetings and 4 At Work meetings a week for 7+ years.
I was "skinny" for a long time ... while she struggled.
Then I gained my weight back ... and more.
Through the years we have both "tried" to lose weight individually and together ... me more often than she. I have lost 50+ pounds several times ... only to find it again. She said it was better to just stay "fluffy" until she was really, really ready.
In November of 2015, I got really, really ready ... again.
In March of 2016, she got really, really ready.
Today she broke through the 200 concrete wall. BFF is in Onederland. Down 48ish pounds.
I am soooooo happy for her.
I am soooooo proud of her.
I am soooooo having a pity party today.
I got to 200.5 in May to bounce back up once again ... water retention, emotional eating, and ol' habits of binge eating. I am currently on track with food and exercise, learned my lesson and I am moving on. I am very, very proud of my small stumble instead of and all and out jumping off the healthy wagon. But BFF's accomplishment today is an ow-ie. So ...
You are cordially invited to my pity party ... no refreshments will be served. In lieu of food ... bring on the support, words of encouragement and some funny, funny jokes.
