Weigh Day - 56.2 pounds! (and newer me)
Losing weight is....strange. On one hand, you think that being thin would be the answer to all your prayers. But we all know that is simply not true. Fat or thin, we can never escape our true selves. Yes, my perception of myself is changing, but I have to realize that my perception of myself may not be accurate.
Also, there's the danger of focusing too much on "me." If I've learned anything so far during this journey, I've learned to pay more attention to the people around me. And I've found that I am so very blessed by the people in my life! I'm so very blessed to have the most supportive, sweetest sister in the world! I'm so very blessed to have a husband and son who love me! I'm so very blessed to be surrounded by loving and supportive friends!
Yesterday, I posted pictures of "Old Me." Honestly, I don't even recognize that person. But somehow, I need to embrace the old me with the love that has been shown to me by so many others through this journey. Maybe that's part of the healing...to forgive myself for what has come before.
These thoughts might be a little disjointed today. Blame it on the Dayquil.
Love and hugs.
