Part 1 of of my support system is here.
My Forces of Nature
My kids support me. Weird for a mom of 2 young kids to say this. They support me by being great kids, especially when hubby and I go to kettlebell class together or when I need to exercise with them around.
My belly sister. We have the same body type. You have done an amazing job dropping 60 pounds. I love talking shop with you. Can’t wait to do some serious shopping with you (no kids) when we are both post SX someday. Our blossoming friendship means a lot to me.
Friends and Followers
I don’t have many followers but knowing they are out there in the cyber world following me helps me in ways I can’t even put into words. I also know there is some friends out there who read my blog but aren’t counted in my followers number. It tickles my heart when a friend comes up to me and mentions they read my blog. I wish I was more eloquent in expressing how much it means to me to have people out there reading my blog. I receive so many insightful comments. You guys ROCK. The support is tremendous regardless if I hear from you or not (no comments, etc). I strive to maintain your interest in reading my little blog.
The occasional family member with a positive comment. Seeing someone who hasn’t seem me in some time. A comment from a fellow mommy. Etc, etc. I will honest here – I love positive, thoughtful, meaningful comments. Although I do sometimes get shy from the attention. I am a Gemini – 2 sided – desire and love compliments but at same time feel shy and awkward. I try my best not to write them off. For example saying something like ”thank you but I still have a long way to go”. Adding the negative negates the nice comment.
