Pin of the Week - Weight Loss
I chose this week's pin because it lists so many of the reasons that I am working on my fitness and weight.
So many times I have looked in the mirror and just started crying because I don't like what I see.
So many times I have disliked being around other people because I feel like I am the fat one of the group.
So many times I have been embarrassed to walk into a room full of people because I feel like they are all looking at me in disgust.
So many times I have wished I could wear those shorts on a hot day but I see how I look in them and forget it.
So many times I have wanted to go to the lake and not done so because putting on a swimsuit seems like a fairy tale.
So many times I have felt like a total loser and it is directly linked to my weight.
But not anymore, friends. Not anymore.
I have been on my weight loss journey since August 2011, and I have had a lot of success. I still have a ways to go, but while I am still over weight I am no longer fat.
And this post right here is the first time I've ever said that to anyone.
You see, I looked in the mirror and it finally dawned on me - I've already lost a lot of weight and I already look better. More importantly, I feel better. And where I used to look in the mirror and see a fat girl, I now look in the mirror and just see someone who is still overweight, still has work to do, but is doing a good job.
I don't always have confidence and I most certainly don't always love myself, but all these things on this list I've pinned are things I am working on and I know I'm on the right track to meet my goal and to be happy with myself, confident, proud, and wearing those shorts because boy does it get hot here in Nevada! Ha!
