Today is for my friend

I had a lot to say as I've not had time to blog in a few days. I just can't.

I'm so excited for my friend Sheryl.

She reached goal!!! I got home from work last night, was chatting with TBM, looking at my Tweets...and saw the one from Sheryl that said she'd reached goal. I got all excited....said 'OHHHHHHHHHHHHH BITCHCAKES REACHED GOAL!!!' I might've even been bouncing around in my chair. Of course, TBM thought I was freaking off my rocker. I may well be.

Any of you new to the blogging world may not know the attachment that can be formed from reading about someones struggle. Following their journey. Sheryl doesn't know me....she's probably never even heard of me. BUT, because of the blogging world. I know her. I celebrate her victories and I feel pain for her losses. I am inspired by her success, and I learn from her. Last year she went through some heartbreak. On her blog, she said her heart was breaking. I prayed for her daily. I was in Mass one Sunday, running through my list of people to pray for and I realized I didn't even know her name. So, right there at St. James Catholic Church I said "God please wrap your healing arms around Bitchcakes'. I'm sure He knew who I was talking about.

Today I celebrate my virtual friend Bitchcakes! She did it! Kudos to her. I'm still excited inside for her.

A stranger?

Not to me.

You are all my friends. My virtual friends.

When you quit blogging you are missed.

So, yesterday, one of us made it. One of us reached her goal. One of us grabbed that golden ring. One of us gave the rest of us hope. No, not hope, certainty. It can be done. It was done. I've actually got tears here. What a sissy. Check out her blog, give her some congrats. I think she earned them!

God bless Bitchcakes!!!



  1. Thanks for the link to Bitchcakes' blog. She is a woman who obviously loves her curves! Her scanty bra and knickers photos reminded me of the gal's blog which features all of those beautiful shapely pinups splashed across the top (I can't remember whose it is). I hope that I can be that comfortable in my own body someday.

  2. So cool when we follow someone for all this time and see them through thick and thin (literally!!) and see them succeed! :) Sheryl is definitely an inspiration to us all! :)

  3. I have been following her also because of you Debby!!!! Did you read where she put she application in for WW leader? I think she would be fantastic at it! She is very inspirational. I don't know where she finds all the hours in the day to do everything she does. My hat goes off to her also. I am hoping this Thursday I will be back to my goal weight or at least within the two pounds so I can quit paying!!! It's been six months. Went to the farmer's market at noon and for bought my lunch, one green pepper, one zucchini, 2 apricots and some blueberries. It was yummy and very filling. How are you doing?

  4. Kathy, shoot me an email please. Yours is missing from my address book. I only remember the shrr part!

  5. I'm a long time reader of Sheryl's blog! Absolutely love it :) Since i don't do twitter i didn't know she'd reached goal but in case she reads this a huge CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

  6. It's been way too long. I miss reading your blog and inspirational thoughts. I'm so excited for your friend. Congrats Bitchcakes!

  7. I will have to check out her blog. It is so true that we start to feel like we know other bloggers after following their story for a while.

    I love hearing about the success of others. It means that we can achieve out goals.

  8. omg this is way late but THANK YOU! I'm including a link to it on tomorrow's post. this is so sweet, thank you Pixie!
