Big Hugs To My Sparkfriends

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

I really miss posting when I'm at work. I could really use the comfort and support of good friends all day long. It's hard to stay focused sometimes and in control. You know you guys remembered my birthday (well I told you pretty boldly it was my birthday) and everyone wished me a happy day and it really meant a lot to me. I kind of got forgotten at work. Even at 45 that's a bummer! I had a great time after work but it helped seeing all the well wishes from my spark friends.

Thanks ladies. You are helping me with a new perspective and perception of myself. That's what good friends do. I have a lot of work to do on my self esteem I always wanted to be a runner and an athlete and when the girls came along when I was 12/13 it was so embarrassing (I really have gotten a ton of comments most of my life) it stopped me from pursuing those kinds of things. To know there are women my age, the same issues, situations, weight and self image. Well you don't know what it means to me. Okay I'm done! Sniff Sniff

    I'm so proud of you Sheila. I'm sorry you can't post from work-bummer. Whether or not you "see" me behind you supporting you, know that I am. I love you my friend.

    Be kind to yourself

    And as for the girl; well I am hoping a good portion of mine shrink with the rest of my body, but I also have learned to embrace them as part of who I am!
    You're awesome and amazing and don't you ever forget it!
