Okay, so I'm super excited to announce that I rid myself of those few pounds and am in the 160's!!!! YAY! That's 22 pounds since I began Spark People and 4 of it was in the last 9 days of March. I got really motivated with this last challenge, (THANK YOU RUN2MYDREAMS!), and have totally rocked it! I don't even feel like rewarding myself with food like I normally do after a diet, I just want to keep on going. You know why? Because this truly isn't a diet! I don't have to keep telling myself that, I KNOW it!
Another biggy for today is that I announced my loss on Facebook! This was huge to me! I'm always so scared of what people will think, especially all of those peers from high school. I didn't want to let them know that I struggle with my weight, that I was fat, that I needed support. I was also afraid of rejection. What if no one commented or "liked" my accomplishment. It's kind of gotten to me before, when I say something really emotionally hard to say, and then nothing. No comments, no encouragement, nada. Well this time I didn't care! I put it out there for the world to see! I'm confident enough in myself that even if they didn't comment I would hold my head up high and know in my heart that I am worth it! I also wanted to do this because it would keep me accountable...ALL those people know now and I'm not about to let them down!
BTW, my comments are blowin up and I've got 5 friends who "like" my status...so far! This feels awesome! I'm so confident and I'm ready for the whole world to know....I'm baaacckk!!
