Took me a long time to summon up the courage to post this. There’s the “I’m not there yet”, the “I have SO MUCH further to go” and the other old insecurities stopping me.
In June 2010, I weighed 75 kgs. Approximately 165lbs. For a 5-foot-nothing, that’s a lotta weight. I was in a relationship where I suspected I was being cheated on. On May 24th 2010 he dumped me for her. I woke up the next day and decided I was done.
I’ve never done anything unhealthy (starved myself, forced myself to throw up, etc). I try and eat as healthy as I can and follow an 80% paleo lifestyle.
I’ve had so many ups and downs and when I look at this picture I realise I should be proud of myself. And sometimes I am. Sometimes I feel like I’ve always felt.
I have a long way to go but I’m getting there, inch by inch, I’m not stopping.
The second picture was taken in June 2012. I weighed in at 64kgs or 141 lbs.
I no longer care about my weight because I run and lift heavy and do yoga and all I want is to be fit and healthy. My ultimate goal is to be comfortable in my own skin and be proud of my own body. Someday soon. I’ll get there.
