One day a couple years ago, while cleaning my room, I came across this old photo. I took a picture of the picture and texted it to a friend with something like "crap, I don't even recognize this as me anymore." My friend wrote back how it didn't look like me at all. I wrote her back, "I'm lost under all that fat"... And as those words were written, I just started balling. I was lost under all that fat! I wasted a lot of years hiding out in my fat suit. I've always considered my weight loss journey as more of a finding Jeannie journey.
This last week was awesome. I cruised with my good friend. We spent a lot of time hanging out with 20-somethings this last week. We took a bar hoping excursion in Mexico. I didn't touch the desert on the cruise. We took the stairs. We used the gym. We laid by the pool. Just enjoyed life...
Wow! What a difference! It reminds me of my own thoughts this morning--the freedom and strength I feel now as I've shed the weight. Congratulations! You are beautiful--inside and out! 1773 days ago
