100 lb. Club - I am SO PROUD of you!

View Full Version : I am SO PROUD of you!

Yes you!

You... who makes good decisions and choices every day. Who stays on plan all the time and is totally dedicated to your goal.

YOU... who falters at times... but knows what to do and how to do it and who WILL make it!!!

YOU... who's struggling, but still comes, still posts, still is working things out.

YOU... who's given up hope almost completely... but has a bit of a glimmer left.

I am SO PROUD of you all. So proud that you come here. So proud to share this journey with you all. You are all CRITICAL in this weight loss journey that we are all on together.

I love you my sisters and (brother or two) in this weight loss battle of the fat nasties (thanks Numina!!!)

and for you? That's just THINKING about starting this journey and just TESTING the waters... THIS IS YOUR SIGN.

love you all :)

Thanks! *blushes* You're so right though! Everyone here has something to be proud of!

I'm proud of you cfmama because you set a WONDERFUL example on this forum. Congrats and THANK YOU.

Thanks, Tammy! :hug:

Yeah, we rock. We all rock. We're here getting and giving so much support to each other, and it's just fantastic. It's such a friendly, wonderful place, and I've seen very little disagreement and absolutely none of the spite and nastiness that I've seen on other forums. Everyone, it's truly an honour and a privilege to have come to know you all. Love you all! :hug:

This is why I keep going, the women here keep me going!

What a terrific post!

03-13-2009, 07:04 AM
Oh and like we've got NOTHING to be proud of YOU for, right? I think NOT.

Really, I am so proud of your efforts towards your own weight loss journey and what you do for everyone elses. What an amazing asset you are to this site. :hug:

Right back atcha, Tammy! Thanks for such a nice post.

I think I needed someone to be proud of me today. Thanks!

This was the first thread I opened this morning and POW! I suddenly feel ready to take on a battalion of fat nasties! Thank you for such lovely words of encouragement, Tammy --- it means so much because you DO know how hard this all can be. We should be proud of ourselves; we are on a very difficult and very exciting journey and as long as we are moving forward, we are winning.

What an awesome post!! That feels wonderful....aaahhhh. :)

Wonderful post. You're right - everyone here has so much to be proud of. Whether we've reached goal, lost 80 pounds so far, or 2 pounds so far. Whether we're months and years into this journey, or just figuring out how to get started - we've all taken the first big step, and we're all here for each other.

You all are awesome, you keep me so motivated :) <3

I really want the fence-sitters who just read this thread to LOGIN or SIGN UP and POST SOMETHING!!! Anything!!!!!

So what if you haven't started yet? Today's your day!!

So what if you started 1/1, quit 1/4, and have been kicking yourself ever since.

So what?? Start again TODAY, right now!!

And, CFMama rocks hardcore. But she knows that. :)

Thank you Tammy! Sometimes I get so down on myself for messing around gaining and losing and screwing up, but you're right. I am proud of me too. I've made a lot of great changes and I keep on trying :)

03-13-2009, 07:06 PM
You win! I am going. I am leaving right now to go to the gym. Bad day or not. Tammy's post just turned it all around and made me refocus.

Baby has an ear infection, but my mom had surgery to remove her gallbladder. She had some sort of reaction to the anesthesia and things were touch and go for a day.
However, today she went home and is feeling as well as can be expected. :) I am heading over there now to give her a hand. (My younger sisters are useless.)

Irish: ear infections SUCK!!! My littlest suffers from them :( I am glad that your mom will be okay :)
