Well, because I felt like it..

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

I have now kept my weight off, all of it for a year.. Most of it for 2..

I do not freak out anymore when I gain, because I know I will lose it. In a healthy manner.

We just got back from Disneyland, and I am happy to report that I still fit on all the rides, and the ones at Magic Mountain as well, and those are the very rides that finally prodded me to become a healthier me, and stay a healthier me..

I am not going to lie to you guys, I still binge eat, however, rather than binge eat for a week, I generally choose a meal, and let myself go to town, only to find that I simply can't, or I just don't FEEL like it.. I think after all that has happened, I have finally chosen ME.. I have chosen to stay healthy and love the shape I am now.. I had lost 160, and I have sat pretty steadfastly at a loss of 140, and I am here to tell you that I celebrate that whole entire person I have lost everyday.. I am grateful for feeling healthy and fit and actually Pretty.. EVERYDAY!! I wear shorts, I wear short shorts.. I wear sundresses and I am excited to do it.. I know what it is to break heels because you are too big to bear weight on them.. I know what it is to not be able to take my own laundry up 11 stairs without feeling like my heart will give out, and most of all I know what it is to not be able to ride a ride because your body is too big..

Love yourself.. Find the love you have to be in your skin right now, and enjoy the journey..

    I LOVE YOU!! You're such an inspiration, and while I'll disagree with part of this--you were always beautiful!--I think we are now both in agreement that you are super gorgeous now!

    Gotta love yourself, but it sure is easier to do when you're making good choices.
