Alright guys. Lets sit down and have a little chat.
If you could see the entire graph of my weight loss from February 2012 to now you would see that July 2012 I weighed 134 lbs which was the first bench mark for my weight loss because that’s how much I needed to weight for rowing. I was the lowest weight I had been since before freshman year of high school.
And then you’d see August when I gained 5lbs back and then gave up.
Well you know what? I’m not giving up anymore. I slip up. Look at my last 3 months. My weight shifts around. I’m not perfect. When I started this journey I was around 150 lbs…. And I couldn’t stand looking myself in the mirror, because I hated my body….
And I thought I could harbour that hate and use it to lose weight. Well here’s the thing.
I got angry and gave up….
Well I’m done with that.
Sure my weight shifts around now, but I have accepted that this journey is not easy, and I have accepted I am human.
I am losing weight because I love myself and therefor I deserve to be in great shape. I’m now love driven rater than hate driven and the journey is a million times easier.
And you know what? I’m almost back at my low weight. I feel great. And no matter what the scale says…
I love myself.
