What losing 90 pounds has taught me....

Thursday, July 05, 2012

Nothing feels as good as seeing my ribs for the first time. Nothing tastes that good...nothing. Also, seeing my Dr. after losing the weight is SO rewarding. And the looks that people give me....yes...this is so good.

But the best part....is the self-confidence I have gained. I do not loathe myself anymore. I am not embarrassed to be seen with ME in public. I can fit into the small seats anywhere! I am aware of my body more, I actually like going places. I used to be a hermit, I am not anymore. I have more options in clothes, food, life. My kids see that yes, you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to - if Mom can do it, so can you. I am becoming the role model I have always wanted to be.

I can handle anything life throws to me. Anything. I may cry, scream, kick, rant and rave. But, I can do it. I have proved to myself that I can do it.

And even though there are parts of my life that are in shambles, I have learn to persevere. I can go forward - as my high school CP English teacher always said..."Let us commence and press on". I can do this. Thank you God, I can do this.

    So happy for you that you got your life back. Being in control of our attitudes and bodies pave the way for all other parts of our life. You made it happen!!

I think that is a big thing to gain - meeting even small goals builds our certainty that we CAN do it, not just this but the the next thing and the next!
