For the past 4 months I've been exercising, eating healthy, and working my butt off to lose weight and feel better about myself. It's working. It's definitely working. I decided to change my lifestyle, not just go on a diet, and people are noticing. I knew that people noticed the weight loss, but I didn't realize that they noticed so much more. One of my friends took me aside yesterday to tell me that she is proud of me and that she wants to know my secret. She said she sees when I take the stairs instead of the elevator, when I say no to the pizza and eat my own lunch, and when I snack on vegetables in class instead of chips. She said she can tell I have so much energy and that I'm happy. She said that I'm an inspiration to her and that she wants to get healthier. How awesome is that?! Not only am I making my life better, but I'm affecting other people too, and that makes me feel even better!
