"What is one word that you would use to describe your 2011? Why does that word sum up your year? (We'll be writing about our one word for 2012 later, so just focus on this year!)"
My one word to sum up the past year? SUPPORT
When starting this weight loss journey I never would have thought I'd get the support that I have this past year. I've made online friends that I know will last a lifetime. That's good for a girl who's not so great at making friends out there in the real world. There's folks from twitter I talk to EVERY DAY via text and we support each other, cry on each other's shoulders, celebrate each other's victories and listen to each other rant about the goings on of our lives.
And there are people I talk to less frequently who are just as wonderful to me. When I reach out on Twitter, I ALWAYS get a response. It's quite honestly amazing. The awesome folks who read my blog? Incredible. You're all part of this network of support that keeps me going when I don't want to anymore. I've been in a funk since early JUNE, folks. And why am I still keepin' on keepin' on? Because of all of you and the folks on Twitter that help me out daily.
Without the great support system I've cultivated over the past year, I'd still be 262.0 pounds and miserable every day of my life.
You all mean THE WORLD to me.
