I have great coworkers!

Today is my one-year anniversary on Weight Watchers. A few days ago, my boss told me that our GMs wanted to do something to commemorate my 100-pound loss (now up to 101.4 with 0.2 last week and 0.8 this week). After consulting me, they decided to do a nice healthy breakfast -- bagels (with whole-grain ones for those of us who are health-conscious), a nice fruit bowl, and fruit juices.

What they DIDN'T tell me was the nice surprise they had --- a very nice picture frame, with 3 picture slots. In the first, they had my before picture (you've all seen that one). In the 2nd one, they have a picture my coworker took of me yesterday. She's been fabulous in helping me chronicle my journey (see picture below). In the 3rd section, they had a "future" picture -- they'd taken an image of a beach volleyball player and cut out my head and pasted it to it! They told me it's for inspiration!

There was also a congratulatory card signed by all my coworkers in house. And our marketing director is going to do a story about me in the next issue of the newsletter that goes to all of us, to all our vendors and resellers, and most likely to Corporate Office too (now that we have one!). I didn't cry (I thought I might), but I did thank them all for their support so far!

And here's the "present" picture:

Honey, you look amazing.

I've been struggling with myself lately, and I read what you said about loving yourself enough to do it. I may not be there quite yet, but you are an inspiration, and I am so proud to call you "friend."
