Losing weight no longer feels like a big accomplishment
Thursday, January 30, 2014
I used to think that once I lost weight everything would fall into place. That dream guy I had been waiting for would magically appear--I would land my dream job and my confidence would be limitless. Although I did get a promotion--calling it my dream job would be an exaggeration and I am still single! However, my confidence has improved dramatically.... but I still have days when I do not feel my best. Despite my status and my career pretty much remaining the same, 80 lbs ago I was a completely different person--someone who was incredibly unhappy with who she was, and the only thing that ran through my mind was that if I "got skinny" I would be happy and everything would be perfect. Things are NEVER perfect, but they have changed, a lot, and for the better. Now, that I have lost weight I finally feel free and am allowing myself to focus on other things. Things that make me happy and things that will improve my life. Things that challenge me and better me as a person. Although remaining healthy will always remain at the top of my list, there is so much more I yearn to accomplish now and it is sad to say that it was my lack of confidence in myself that has held me back all these years. Now there is so much more that I want to set out to accomplish, and it no longer revolves just around losing a lb or two.
