Do you feel that your weight holds you back socially?
Dang man. What’s with the hard questions??? I hope there are some easier ones coming up. (Yes, I jacked and re-wrote a bunch, but I don’t remember the order. I do this specifically so y’all get how I’m feeling the day of the question, not how I felt three billion years ago :P).
Once upon a time, I would have said no. These days, I’m going to say yes-ish. It’s been a long couple of years and I’ve been beaten down, emotionally, a lot. Whether it’s intellectually with school, or weight-wise and more with the boy, it’s just been a long few years. Now that I’m officially unemployed, it’s just that much worse. So, yeah, weight does add into all of it. A huge part of this journey is to gain back a lot of the self-confidence I’ve lost over the last few years, which does certainly get aided by weight loss, because that just makes for one really good day. I’m good at putting on a show, so do outside people generally see the lack of self-confidence? Nope! I do know how to fake it until I make it, so I do have that going for me. It will be interesting to see how I rock my own little world when I get fit and healthy. I’m pretty pleased with the trajectory at the moment, so here’s to keeping that up.
