As part of my weight loss program, I attend weekly classes. We weigh in, meet with the dietitian and doctors if we need to, and have a class to discuss aspects of our health and lives. One of my health classes was all about support.
I was so nervous to start sharing my progress last May. I was self-conscious and worried that I would be judged for failing when I tried this last year. I have been so humbled by my supporters! I have documented much of my journey on instagram #uamswlc. I am so humbled by my friends and even people I don't know as well who have encouraged and supported me. I'm humbled by the faith you have in me!
Today, I ate way too much popcorn at a movie but I'm thankful that I have people who remind me that tomorrow is another day and I can start over.
A few weeks ago, I was driving in the car with the girls and Miss M asked me how much weight I'd lost. We talked about it and she asked if I'd like to lose 200 lbs. I explained that that would actually be too much but that I hoped to hit 100 in one year. She got very quiet and then she said, Mom, I'm so proud of you. You're working so hard.
My girls are so good. They watch me and they are learning. I hope they are learning that I'm happier and healthier. And they ask lots of questions. They get worried if I eat something "off plan" and ask if I'm having a tostada for dinner every day (my standard dinner).
I love them, and I love you, and I thank you!
