No more waiting

Thursday, October 07, 2010

I realized something this morning, I have spent the last 8 years waiting.
Once i gained the weight everything was about ooooh I am going to go here when I'm thin, I'm going to do that when I'm thin. I started my weight loss journey January 4th 2010 and I have lost 70 pounds 4 more to go!!!! I had a thought this morning.... What am I waiting for?
I am the new me, there's nothing to wait for. It feels weird that I can do whatever I want, wear whatever I want. It is time to start living again and enjoying the new and improved me.
Now I know people will say u should be happy at any weight, but that overweight/obese person really wasn't who i am. How could i be happy being someone that wasn't really me?
I suffered with anxiety and depression for years and it has greatly improved while on my weight loss journey, I feel free again of all the baggage spiritually and physically.
It sounds weird to say it but its going take a little time getting use to the new and improved me . I'm starting to think about things I want to do, places I want to go. I guess this journey is almost over but a new one is starting.

    This blog really put a smile on my face!

    Those are the words I'm saying to myself lately... I'll do this or that once I get the weight off. Really because I'm not capable of doing anything I want to, physically, like I used to.

    It must feel so great to be where you are now! Good work!
