My Sister, My Cheerleader!
Tuesday, March 09, 2010
I get a lot of support from my dear friends here on SparkPeople, but my greatest support is my dear sister, Rose.
My sister is 3 years younger than me, she has 2 children just like me. She is also struggling with her weight and likes to get workout ideas from me. She is still struggling with commitment, but I'm working on sparking her on - I keep reminding her that we have to this for ourselves and for our children.
The special thing about my sister is that she is my own special reward system. I never have to reward myself when I reach my mini goals because my dear sister is always looking for ways to reward me for my weightloss. We see each other every weekend and she will go out of her way to compliment me and to buy me gifts to encourage me - clothes, jewellery, shoes, books etc. Almost half my wardrobe is from her. She is the kindest person I know, very giving and totally loving.
I thank God for giving me such a special sister. I pray that I can be the kind of sister to her that she is to me. I wish she was living closer to me because then it would be easier to do this together. But I still intend to do my best to encourage her and to be there for her.
Thanks Rose, you surely are the best sister anyone would ask for. God bless you.
