What do I see when I look at the pictures?
I see someone who accomplished their goal. I see someone who pushed beyond her limits and now is happy in her new body. I used to think that I would never be able to lose the fat and was pretty unhappy about how I looked. But once the process started and because of the direction and encouragement you provided I grew more confident. It really did feel like it was impossible to change. But I believed and it happened. Along with the weight loss I had to deal with the issues that caused me to overeat. Those issues are melting away as well.
I feel absolutely wonderful about where I am at now. I know I could still lose a few pounds. But I can find clothes that fit and I have been getting tons of compliments. I really don’t like that much attention but it is good to have some validation.
Now I feel like the person I was always meant to be (physically). I also walk around with my badge of success (lower weight). It speaks volumes about my fortitude.
But I know my journey is not over yet. I am in it for the rest of my life.
Thanks so much for your direction, support and caring.
