Transformations

My transformation has been a long one. And it’s hasn’t only been physical.

When I first decided to have WLS (weight loss surgery) I was frightened, but not the way you would think. It wasn’t the operation part that scared me, it was who was I without my fat to protect me.

Just like when the kids were little and you use them as a buffer in social situations, that’s how I used my fat. I hid behind it and used it as an excuse not to do things.

So who would I be once that was gone?

Well, I’ve found out that….

I’m very confident. Who knew?

I’m happy.

I’m funny.

I’m a great friend.

I’m sassy (not new news).

I’m pretty.

I’m super outgoing.

I’m brave.

I’m strong.

I’m determined.

I’m opinionated.

I’m sexy.

I AM WORTHY!!!!

And it’s ok to feel these things! It doesn’t make me conceited or egotistical. It makes me a woman!

These new (and not so new) findings about myself are always evolving. Because we are always changing and growing.

When I speak to others about my journey, I love to tell them about where I started! It’s so important for people to know where you began.

I was never that girl that was always watching what I ate or exercising! I was the one that ordered two cheeseburgers so I could sneak one later! I still hate exercise but I now know its value!

Don’t be afraid to transform yourself. Trust the process and give yourself permission to fail. Because there’s always a lesson to be learned.
