After years of unhappiness when I looked into the mirror, I am still struggling to get used to how I look.
When I look in the mirror these days, my face looks so much less swollen. And my arms and inner thighs are almost normal size now. And every now and then I get a vertical crease down the center of my stomach. Every time I notice these differences, I ask myself, is this how I'm meant to look?
I was on ESPN a few times during our game on Saturday, and my mom as well as a few other people said they barely recognized me, well except for the screaming face. That's been the same my entire life. What can I say, I love football!
I'm sure I'll eventually get used to my new normal, but sometimes I just think, is that really me?
