A rare moment. I was proud of myself!
Thursday, July 09, 2015
They say it takes 4 weeks for you to notice, 8 weeks for friends, and 12 weeks for the world. Today was my day. I cried when I looked in the mirror today. For the first time in 15 years I cried not because I was so disgusted with what I saw, but because of how proud of myself I am. I've been working so hard, sacrificing the junk food, deserts, and amount of alcohol I usually consume, especially during the summer. I go to the gym when I'm hurting, tired, and just not in the mood. I've only dropped like 10 pounds so I was getting a little down. However, I definitely know now that it's not about the number on the scale, but about how I look and especially how I feel. I have more energy, my moods are better, and I'm motivated. I've done things at the gym this week that I wasn't able to do 4 months ago. Hell there are things I'm doing that I couldn't do 4 weeks ago. I took this picture today and it has raised my self confidence level so much!!!
