Encouragement Across the Miles

One of my best friends, and fellow sojourner on the path to better health, sent me a weight loss encouragement package last week. It was compromised of eight packs of Extra gum!! I am set for months now.

We may not be able to get together for walks, or to share a lunch, but she is always thinking of ways to encourage me along my weight loss journey. I appreciate her continued support as I keep taking turtle steps forward on my journey.

I hope you all have at least one friend who is your support and encouragement along your weight loss journey. I'm blessed to have a handful of great support friends and I know it means the world to me that they haven't given up on me and my aspirations to lose weight and get fit. :)


  1. so great that you have someone that encourages you. I try to do the same, when I know someone may be slipping I ask how they are doing and that picks them right back up. Gentle words of encouragement is sometimes all we need.

  2. Leah, You know I love you and I am so proud of you! You truely are the bestest friend anyone could have!
