I appreciate all of the support

I just wanted to make a quick post and say thank you to everyone who is supporting me and encouraging me as I make this journey.  It's been really awesome to hear from and talk to others who share in the same struggles they have had or are going through.  I was hoping to post a Facebook chat that I had last night with a good college friend.  Unfortunately it was so long that I lost the first part of it, which was the best part.  She did give me permission to share so I'll tell you just a bit about her journey. Her name is Jamie and she actually just got married....congrats again Jamie!  She had gastric bypass surgery awhile back and has lost almost 100 lbs (I think that's what she said).  How awesome is that!!  She shared some of her secrets with me and I'm looking forward to trying them.  Jamie...what was the name of that protein you use?  I may start with trying that...especially since it's low in calories.  I think we agree I could use that as a great snack that would have more nutritional value.

A colleague at work shared her story of when she was younger and the struggles she had with her weight.  I won't share the details because I haven't asked her permission.  I couldn't, and still don't believe it though.  I told her I wouldn't believe it until I saw pictures.  She assured me she would bring some in, so we shall see. 

Blogging everyday has been great because it's my chance to reflect on the journey!  For anyone who reads, please feel free to share it with anyone who you think might be interested.
