This is totally where I am at lately. My body is strong. I no longer obsess about the number on the scale. I no longer beat myself up for an indulgence, and I don't let it throw me off course for the whole day (or week or month).
I have become focused on new goals. Things I never thought I could do. Things that seemed like ridiculous dreams a few years ago.
3 1/2 years ago, I was 263 pounds, miserable, scared, anxious, and hated life. I don't even recognize that woman any more.
The struggles are worth it. Pain, sweat, fear - they are all worth it. Nothing feels better than confidence. Nothing feels better than truly loving yourself.
