I have been losing weight for a while now and I love seeing all the differences. I love feeling stronger and more able. I love that my body is getting smaller. I love having more energy and being able to live my life instead of just existing. Just about every day I notice something that I can do now that I couldn’t before, or something that I can do better now. Sometimes I think, “I can’t do that”, but I try anyway and sometimes I can! When I can’t, I know that really it just means that I am not able YET, but I will get there! I am feeling more positive and optimistic than I have in so long, maybe ever.
Don’t get me wrong, I still struggle. I still need help sometimes with things that other people take for granted. I still hurt every day, although I do hurt less now. I still move slowly most of the time, but I’m moving more and more. I still have social anxiety, but I’m working on it. I still have people who say and do ignorant things when I’m in public sometimes, but I’m learning to ignore it and move on. I know that I am a work in progress and I probably always will be, but I’m working hard on making me the best that I can be.
I see the pounds and inches coming off and I am so proud of all that I have accomplished. I have lost inches everywhere, except for one place. I am not, AT ALL, putting myself down or belittling how far that I have come, but really, REALLY, why the heck are my calves still SO fat??? Lol.
