I would like to add here that at 300, 130 something and everything inbetween I've loved you. You have always been a great friend, a sister and an inspiration to me to never let hope die no matter what the circumstances may be at any given time because life, like weight, fluctuates and one day really isn't a measurement for success or failure.
Seeing your journey (and that of other friends) has really helped prepare me for my own to come. I know a lot more than my appearance is going to change but I'm confident that I'm making the right choices for my long term health and regardless of a number on a scale I plan to live fully and to the best of my ability everyday.
*hugs* Thank you. It's not even the actual day Christmas yet and already you feel so far away. Know that I love you dearly and someone roaming the greater Puget Sound area this holiday misses you and treasures you greatly.
