I was so nervous about Chicago. I was nervous leaving the kids, nervous that I wouldn't get along with anyone and about a million other things. But I made myself go because I knew that if I didn't I would regret it. And let me just say that I'm glad beyond words that I made myself go.
It was so surreal to meet everyone in person. We have been so intimate on the blogs telling each other some of our inner fears and doubts. Lets face it, these blogs are not only about weight loss they are about our everyday lives. I have never in my life felt so supported than I have these last 6months blogging.
Everyone that I met surprised me. I wish it could have been longer and that we could all just live together! I forget who mentioned it, so I can't give them credit, but one of the ladies compared it to being in a sorority. And it really was. I hope that we can do these types of events again. The women did an amazing job putting all of the details together so I want to give a little shout out to the planning committee. I know that after this weekend I have made some real friendships.
