I look at the picture on the left and I see so much pain in my eyes. I feel like they look hopeless and lost, or I could just be intensely focusing on my selfie . I believe I took these pictures the summer of 2013 before I started my journey. I kept trying to be healthy and gave up a handful of times in those few months. I decided in November that I couldn't keep living like this and embarked on one of my most impressive accomplishments of my life, getting healthy. Of course losing weight for aesthetic reasons was way up there on the list but I really didn't want to keep living my life in constant pain. I couldn't sleep on my back because I'd feel like I was suffocating and I had to mentally prepare myself if I had to climb the stairs. I had been obese for most of my life so that's all I knew. That heavy weighed down by an anchor feeling. Now that I'm "average sized" I don't ever want to go back to that physical or mental state.
The picture on the right was this past week when I dress shopping just for fun. Shopping was never fun before because there was such a limited variety of clothing that would fit and I felt uncomfortable in 95% of the ones that actually did fit.
Sure I still have issues with my body, weightloss won't magically solve all of your life's problems but it does make each day a lot easier in many different ways.
Get your head in a positive place, don't focus on numbers, eat to nourish your body not to fill a void and just know we are all capable of greatness. You can do anything you put your mind to.
Oops I decided to go to group after all and just face it...and I'm up half a pound. I know exactly why so I'm not going to dwell on it. I have just 1.5 pounds to go until target, I'm going to put my head down and focus. I know I can get there next week
