Today I’m trying to find things that will help me take care of me.
Day one: what is your biggest struggle with loving yourself?
That’s something I didn’t even know I could do. Having been so obese for so long it’s been challenging over the years to even think I had a right to love myself. Of course I loved things about myself. I loved how loyal a friend I was, I loved my singing voice and I loved my ability to organize and craft projects.
But did I truly live who I was? Nope.
All because of how I looked on the outside and how I thought people received me because of it.
Losing 131 pounds, as of today, makes me realize that this little woman has been here the whole time. I just had to dig deep for her.
I have found that I am strong.
I am beautiful.
I am a good mom.
I am a good wife.
I am a loyal friend.
I am a loving sister.
I adore my family.
I love how I want to give so much to people.
I love my heart.
I love my passion for God.
And I love that I’m willing to try new things and learn.
