140 Pounds!!!

A fabulous hello to you!

Yesterday was, well, CRAZY!

I had a cosmetic reset assigned in a local store that went from a 4 hour day to an 8 1/2 hour day... all on my feet.

Then after getting home, finally eating a good meal...well sort of... it was off to my cleaning job!

Another 2 hours on my feet with physical work.

That person up there on the left would not have made it through the day, let alone made it to my cleaning job.

As sore as I am this morning I know with stretching and moving I will feel much better by the afternoon.

It is just mind blowing to me at the changes I have made the last 18 months. Changes I had been struggling to make...for years!

I am 15 pounds lighter now then in the right photo above, still about 60 pounds from where I would ultimately like to be but I feel good.

Not just feel good physically,  but mentally too. I feel good about what I have already accomplished and know I can still accomplish much.

I read something this morning...

Your fat might be someone else's skinny...

so don't judge.


Totally was an aha moment for me.

I truly am finding that despite...

The lose skin

The 60 pounds still to go

The soreness I feel right now

...I am comfortable in my own skin!

The first time I ever remember feeling this way.

I like it...a lot!

That certainly not to say I don't have moments or a day here and there that those old inadequate and hate my body feelings come back, but they are less and less.

For me...

To me...

That is success!

Do you or have you struggled with this body image hate? Have you gotten past it and can love you for who you are...now?


Until next time...

Trish
