This is a secret so don't tell.
My sister made me cry on the phone the other day. Not in the bad way, but in the I know she is proud of me way. Did I say I adore my sis?
I was talking blog design (she is a graphic artist) with her . I explained to her that I wanted to create a button to link my blog to my FB page. Which is a huge NSV because most of my FB friends have no idea how much weight I had gained or the fact that I am now banded (now they know!). She said she assumed I had told my secret.
I told her it was because I wanted to make sure I would succeed at this. I have failed so many diets before. I didn't want the pressure. I told her that I wanted to reach my goal before going majorly "public".
She paused and said....................
You have already succeeded. You have lost 88 lbs.
I explained my fear of being stuck here, at this number. Maybe I couldn't loose anymore, then what?
You know what she said?
She said, hand to heart, YOU ALREADY LOST 88 LBS!!!! YOU ARE A SUCCESS!
My sister told me I had succeeded. Me..............succeeded! Sometimes, we just need to hear that encouragement from the people we love the most.
