Gym Peeps

I am so thankful for the people that I've met at the fitness center. They give me so much encouragement on a daily basis. Right now this has been so essential to me. I've been kind of "afraid" of people since we left our last church almost a year ago. I was very hurt by people that I looked up to. People made me feel so worthless, like my ideas didn't matter, my skills weren't important. Do you know how hard that is to bounce back from?

My gym peeps though - they rejoice when I rejoice, they get annoyed when I get annoyed...they notice how hard I work and affirm me.

I was planning to step out this weekend and head to a women's retreat with my church, but the rooming situation didn't work out. I'm okay about it. I just need to put myself out there and not be so afraid. I've done great things for myself and I need to remember to be proud of myself, who I am and who I am becoming.


  1. Soooooo important to find support in weight loss if you are in it for the long hall. I can't tell you how many times a kind word or an atta boy helped me stay on track.

    Sounds like you are finding people who care about you and want you to succeed. Count yourself blessed.

  2. Hey Jodie - hopefully by now you've received the gift card :)

  3. Your doing so well...and almost at your goal! Your amazing lady..keep up the great work!
