When I started this journey I was 195# and miserable with myself for letting myself go like that (I am 5'3", so that's a TAD high for me). I felt like I had completely lost myself.
As I keep moving forward on this journey, there are ups and downs. I try not to let the downs get to me too badly, but it still happens sometimes. When I have a downer I just try to pick myself up and try that much harder to turn it around. Pitying myself isn't going to change anything for the better. When I have ANY kind of up, I celebrate like I just won an Olympic gold medal!!! When I hit my first 5# loss and the scale said 189 I literally cried! I was so happy! Those 5# were a huge victory for me and gave me the confidence to keep going. It proved to myself that I can do this! This morning I hit 179#. I haven't had a 7 as the second digit of my weight in a long time! Every up, no matter how big or small, is something to be celebrated! Celebrate everything from tightening the belt, to rings fitting better, to clothes fitting better, to simply FEELING better and making better choices! Every positive that comes out of this journey is a victory and a reason to keep fighting! Every down is even more of a reason to keep fighting! There's a reason I started this journey, and I have no intentions of quitting now!
