I'm making progress and it's not necessarily the kind that the scale shows. Slowly, I have attained this attitude of being content with who I am. Granted, there are still some things that need to change...my near obsession with strength training, my undying love of popcorn, my short-tempered outbursts... I could go on. But all in all, I'm getting happy just being me. I've always been so uncomfortable in my own skin, wanting to be thinner or prettier or to be kinder to others. All these things I "want" are coming to pass. I feel thinner because I'm eating healthier and more conscientiously. I feel prettier because I'm starting to accept who I am and finding out I'm not as ugly as I imagined. It's hard to explain. It's coming from the inside and it's awesome. Like the Bible says, I'm being transformed by the renewing of my mind. And with God at my side, it only gets better from here. He's the best and I'm not so bad.
