I have been blessed to have a great support system while I have been on my journey and in general. My fiancé, parents, and friends have been amazing! I couldn’t ask for more.
Let’s start with my fiancé, he could have turned and run a way a long time ago but he didn’t he stuck around. I was very unhappy prior to starting this journey and not exactly the greatest person to be around but for some reason he stuck with me. I am so happy he did because he has been my rock and biggest cheerleader. He has never been one to tell me I shouldn’t have something, in regards to food, but we will kindly ask if it is a good decision to have whatever it is I want. If I say yes, there are no more questions asked but if I say no he will tell me that I will thank him later.
As I mentioned, he is also my biggest cheerleader. He has been to so many races I can’t even tell you how many. He gets up early, stands in the cold/hot, but is always at the finish line with a big smile! He has gone on many of my “racecations” and not complained a single bit. I couldn’t ask for more support from him and appreciate all that he gives me, I will never be able to repay him!
Friends, there are so many that have been supportive and I appreciate and value each one! Some have helped me in making wise food choices when we go out to eat, others have worked out with me, while others have been at races to cheer me on, and then there are the few that have been my shoulder to lean on.
I don’t want anyone to feel left out so I am not going to name names but you all know who you are and I am so appreciative to have you in my life.
