Today I am thankful that I have a job that pays the bills. Sadly, there are a lot of unemployed or people whom don’t make enough to pay their bills. I am one of the lucky few that actually does have a good job and is actually pretty well taken care of. Yes, I definitely have one of those rude co-workers
Yesterday was weigh- in Thursday and I realized I had forgotten to post about it.
So drum roll please…. I’m down -1.5 lbs. for the week.While this number may not seem like much to most, I am very happy with it. It seems to me that the more weight I lose the harder it is to lose it. My first 20lbs came off with a just barely a sneeze and now I can eat right, workout daily and barely lose a pound. I think my body is holding on as strong as possible and that’s okay. It just makes me that more impressed with myself when I lose it. Even if I have to lose the last 13.5 lbs. 1lb/one week at a time I will get there and I’m honestly okay with that.
Last night, I really took a moment to think about my journey. I have been on my mission to get healthy just a little more than a year now and I have lost a total of 71.5lbs. Just think about it 71.5lbs is the weight of a 10 year old girl! I have lost a whole person. While in the beginning I was so disappointed that I had let myself get to the point of complete obese I have learned that I have amazing drive and now know I can do anything I put my mind to. I am so impressed with my will-power, strength and drive. I think that this whole experience has made me such a better person inside and out. This journey has not only been about losing weight, it has been about changing my life. I wanted to be healthy mentally and physically. I wanted to be a person that I would want to meet; I wanted to be a person that would inspire my future children. I wanted to be a strong wife for my soon-to-be husband and I wanted to be the best me I could be. While I still have my moments, I have made so many of these changes throughout my journey so far. My self-confidence has changed in such a big way. I feel like I am pretty girl not just a pretty face. I feel like for once in my life I really want to live and I want to go out and try new things. I want to meet new people and I want to live every day to the fullest. Today I am proud of who I am.
Happy Friday and I hope everyone has a great weekend!! High Five :)
