wow! I feel like you might just be my clone! I had a very similiar experience....more than once I should add. Now, here I am...over 20 years since my last discouraging day....when I notice i'm packing on a few lbs, I start working on it right away. I don't want it to get out of control again. I'm getting to old now to keep going backwards.
Way to go! You took control of your life and ceased being a helpless participant. More power to you and keep up the good work!!! I'm down to size 12 too! it's a wonderful feeling. It's the inner spark in each of us that needs to find its' way out so we can really shine and be who we were meant to be.
Wow...thanks for sharing...I could relate to your story so much and it was just what I needed to read today. Congratulations on being so brave & sticking to your new life routine!!! You should be very proud of yourself!
"For the first time I feel very comfortable with who I am and with what I will never be."
I am proud of you for getting to a place where you are comfortable with who you are.
It seems like you have accomplished your goals for losing weight. So what next? If "what I will never be" is something you really want, you CAN make that happen. Look at what you have already accomplished!!
No one is born already knowing what they are to become, or how to accomplish that. It is a journey we all take, whether we want to or not.
