Procrastinating, as usual. I present today at 5pm for my Renaissance art history class. Screw you, Giorgione, for not being interesting enough for me to want to talk about you….
2 weeks until college is officially over for the semester. I hate you. But summer, hurry up and get here… I love you!
I’m so grateful I took whole body photos of my self when I was as self conscious as one could possibly be! Without them I would have no comparison to how far I’ve come, nothing to compare to. I honestly can not remember who that person was in the before photo. (Incase anyone is wondering, I’m 5’10 and sitting on 70.5kgs!)
I’ve worked so hard to change my body, mind and wellbeing that all I see when I look at my former self is an empty shell with very little life. When I look at myself now, I can make silly faces in photos and not feel stupid about them, why? Because my self confidence has grown phenomenally, to the point where going out in public in a bikini isn’t a cause for a heart attack for me anymore.
It took a very long time for me to be able to accept myself as my body changed, almost immediately I could feel it on the inside. I had more energy from eating healthier foods (mainly increasing the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables), from having that increased energy I could exercise more often, in exercising more often I felt the need to continue to eat right, in continuing to eat right I began to establish great habits that have stuck with me throughout this entire journey. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I fully began to accept my new appearance, prior to my new self love I constantly felt as though I hadn’t changed, that my body looked like it did in the before photo.
That’s where serious work on my mindset and views of myself had to come into play, it’s difficult.. but you have to work at viewing yourself in the positive light. Focus on the great aspects of yourself no matter how poorly you feel. If you can’t accept yourself for who you are, who you were.. nothing is going to change no matter how much weight you lose.
LOVE YOURSELF. Love the way you look. Love your body enough to want to make a change so that it no longer has to suffer an unhealthy lifestyle. The only person who can change you, is you. YOU have to create your new life, you have the power.
I’m only 40 lbs. lighter than I was at my heaviest. I quit after that and have maintained it ever since. But this is truly inspirational and makes me want to continue to my goal. It is a new year coming up after all. :)
