It seems like it has been forever since I made a non-weigh in post. I feel fairly guilty for that, because I don't want to send the message that my journey is all about results. It isn't. To me it is about challenging myself to be a better me. About accepting, and loving the person I am and improving my health, attitude, and general outlook on life.
For the past few weeks I had been struggling with that aspect of my journey. Since I wasn't seeing results on the scale I was convinced I had no results period, and that simply wasn't true. I mean just look at this picture I took a couple of weeks ago.
Yup! Those are my meaty thighs and muscular calfs wearing tights and boots.
I mean if you have ever tried to put on tights and wear them comfortably as an overweight or obese lady you know why they haven't been a part of my wardrobe for the past 6 years. And don't even get me started on the woes of boot shopping with large calfs. I mean started and named my blog after an embarrassing boot shopping experience.
Who would have known, two things that 5 months ago I was almost positive I could never wear - I'm wearing!
Everyday I am gaining confidence in myself and the things I can do. I look in the mirror and smile, I decide to try on clothes even if they might not fit. I feel happier and it gives me great hope for the future and what it will bring. This journey is about so much more then results.
