So I reached a massive weightloss milestone last week.
I hit 50.5lbs or 3stone 8.5 lbs.
I’m not at goal yet, but I was trying to remember the last time I was this size. I’ve been married almost 13 years and I’m smaller than I was then.
I’ve had to go back 18 years to find a photograph of me at a healthy weight.
And while I can see flashes of that 18 year old when I see photos of me, what I see in the mirror is the 30 year old me.
That’s why I keep putting on clothes that are 5 sizes too big and hang off me.
That’s why I occasionally have wobbles in my self confidence.
It’s going to take a while for my mental image to reverse itself, but I’ll get there.
But, they are occasional moments. I walk around singing, I have a constant smile on my face. I’m walking taller & achieving things I never dreamed I could do. I’ve been told that I’m radiating happiness – I hope so as that’s how I feel!
