I Medaled!

Today when I arrived at my Silver Sneakers exercise class, a group of my friends welcomed me with a gift!

Since my birthday was last month, and Christmas is still a couple of months away, I couldn't imagine what this could be about.  As I looked from Sylvia, to Tootsie, and the others with a questioning expression, they said, "It's for you.  Open it."

I removed the ribbon and this was what the box contained:

Two medals on ribbons!  It was their way of congratulating me for persevering and losing 62 pounds!   I thought that was the sweetest gesture ever!  

I feel lucky to have such caring friends who are supporting me and cheering me on!  I immediately put the "Way to Go" medal around my neck, and I plan to wear the "Great Job" medal to Thursday's class.  What great gals they are.   I love that I can call them my friends!

I've been going through my blog list and I was surprised to find this recent post. I have no idea why you aren't showing up on my blog roll. I thought you were taking another break and now I realize this isn't so.

Ashley: I agree!

Al: Thanks

Such a sweet gesture form them to you. And well deserved.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Wow! 62 pounds is OUTSTANDING and well deserving of a couple of medals. That takes a lot of effort and work.
Good for you!

Merle: Not sure if the good idea was the medals or to subscribe to my blog by email...I'm up for both!

River: It was a sweet gesture and I really appreciated it.

Joanna: Thanks...I'm still working at it, but it's more difficult when I can't swim for exercise.
