As I’m enjoying the amazing town of Breckenridge and getting used to the high altitude, here’s my amazing sister! She’s my very best friend and I love her to pieces!
I am Tracey. I am Brooke’s AMAZING sister.
The other day Brooke asked me to type up a blog post so that she can put it as a guest post while she is away at Colorado. When she asked I instantly thought “What do you even want me to write about?” and it didn’t take long for Brooke to respond back with a very modest reply “about me of course.”
So here I go.
What Brooke means to me.
Basically my whole entire life (well for as long as I can remember) I always said that Brooke is my hero…
I actually really think that she is Wonder Woman (hence the title of this blog entry)
Now…you all know that Brooke has always struggled with her weight. I never understood why because our parents weren’t feeding her HoHos, buckets of lard, and shoving soda down her throat. She ate the same things my brother and I did (which definitely were not the items I listed above). While growing up I always struggled to understand…but I didn’t think it mattered because whenever I saw my sister I didn’t see all of her extra weight…I saw her as my gorgeous sister whom I loved to be around!
It was always hard for me when people made fun of Brooke and a lot of you probably think that the jokes were only directed towards her…but believe it or not people would actually say cruel things about her to me. This always upset me because they just assumed Brooke only ate Twinkies (which was actually what a bunch of cruel girls said to me). I never understood why people didn’t see Brooke the way I did…it never made sense to me at all.
I think Brooke is Wonder Woman because she has broken through all the barriers that she has ever been given. She has lost an incredible 125 pounds in 2 years. She has overcome people’s cruel jokes, nasty looks, and stereotypes about who she is. She grabbed ahold of her life and isn’t going to settle for anything short of her goals. She has always been my best friend and I have always been able to rely on her for anything that has ever upset me. She has a heart of pure 18k gold. I have always loved who Brooke is…but I absolutely LOVE who she is now. She is the person I always knew she was but now she can shine and show the world.
To Brooke: I love you more than you will ever know. I want to thank you for all the years you saved me from the cruel fake people who were constantly in my life. I have always been able to count on you and I am thankful for that. My life would be so lame and boring without our fun photo shoots and random drives around random towns listening to RANDOM songs. I wish only the BEST for you in everything you do. I also miss you every day (since I moved to the ‘Loo). I can’t wait til I see you again in our completely MATCHING clothes…WE CAN DO THAT NOW!
To Brooke’s Readers: I would like to share some of my favorite pictures of Brooke and I…and also NEVER STOP READING THIS BLOG!
