Last night I went for my daily walk in shorts and a t-shirt. Something I haven't done in a loooooong time. I felt like I rediscovered the old me...not the one who had to convince herself that carrying around all of this extra weight was justified because she had three kids... The one that was proud to have carried that weight to give birth to her children, but is gladly saying goodbye to it...it's no longer a souvenier!
I won't ever regret having been this overweight. (Funny thing is, I had some false image that told me I didn't look THAT bad - I just never looked in the mirror or had my picture taken)
After carrying around this weight for so long, and watching it come off pound by pound, every day is happier than the day before. I think I'll always be a happier person for knowing what it felt like to be overweight. So instead of feeling sorry for myself, I think I'll take from it what I need, and get rid of the rest! :)
