Tooting the Horn for My BFF Lo Lo

I want to tell you all about my BFF of 30 years, Lo Lo. That’s not her real name but I’ve called her Lo Lo for as long as we’ve been friends. The girl doesn’t like to toot her own horn so I’m going to do it for her. Toot, toot, tooty, tooty, toot, toot. TOOOT!

Lo and I have had the same problem with obesity. When I started my journey over a year ago to shed the pounds and get healthy she decided to do the same thing. The girl has quite literally worked her ass off. We have kept each other motivated and have held each other up when we’ve faltered. She is so kick ass and amazing and I just love her!

She not only has lost weight she has gotten into incredible shape. She has a personal trainer that whips her ass. She takes what he gives her and she says thank you sir, may I have another. I couldn’t do that. I’d punch the fucker in the throat and tell him I could do it just fine on my own. Which by God I do. I admire her strength and her willingness to give her will over to someone else. She ran her first 5K this last weekend and finished 13th in her division. The woman has never run before in her life. She just started doing that in the last year.

She just graduated with a Master’s Degree in Nursing on Sunday. This woman, this stellar, amazing, smart, beautiful, funny, warm, witty woman has done so much. I’m so proud to call her my best friend, and my sister. We were there for each other when we were kids, when we were new wives and mommas, and now that we are healthy, middle aged women. She has held my hair when I puked from too much alcohol when we teenagers and gotten me out of more jams than I can count. She’s the girlfriend that never judged me when everyone else did. And I love her so much. I am so incredibly PROUD OF HER.

Love you forever, your Nae Nae

    • Oh Moonbeam let them laugh!! I’m glad it tickled you. Lo and I have worked hard. It’s been a Godsend having her for support. Not only through this journey but so many others in my life….

  1. Renee,
    You are something! I love ya. Not sure I deserve that kind of bio, but I am honored. I feel the same about you. I think we have had each other’s backs for all these years, so it is a two way street! Thank you for being a great friend.

    • Oh my Lo Lo now I’m blushing. Girl you deserve all those kind words and more. You are so bad ass and you don’t even realize it. I love you more than words can say….

    • I’m so glad I have her in my life. She’s quite a great woman. She doesn’t always believe in herself but I believe in her and that’s what matters….
