I started this blog to keep myself motivated on my journey and to possibly inspire others in their own personal journeys. I’m not perfect, no where close to it actually. I’ve lost a little over 70 pounds and I’m STILL considered obese. It’s upsetting yes, but knowing that I’ve worked my ass off the past year to lose 70 pounds makes me feel good. Kind of empowered, really.
I reblog photos of girls with incredible bodies. I know that I will never look like that because of how large I was in the beginning, and still am. I know I will have loose skin, still have stretch marks, and probably will never see abs.
But what I will see is how when I finally get where I want to be, is that I did it. What keeps me going is knowing that one day, maybe even years from now I will be at my goal weight.
The only way to do it is to tell myself I can. You are your own boss. You make things happen for yourself. You can make a change. Do it for the feeling at the end. All of the sweat, tears, constant battles with the scale or dress sizes changing, it will be SO worth it.
You can do anything. No matter how long it takes, you CAN change yourself. I know it’s hard, it’s so damn hard. Confidence is something I’ve never had. But I’m hoping that doing this will give me confidence like I’ve never felt before.
Just please, if anyone took the time to read this, don’t give up. You will be so happy you didn’t. But if you do give up, it’s never the end. It is never too late to make a change. We all have bad days, weeks, months, even years. No one is perfect.
You’re beautiful as you are, no doubt about it. But if you decide you want to make a change, just know that you have my full support in whatever you do. You can accomplish great things. I promise it.
