Eagle tracks #icecream with hot fudge and colored #sprinkles- so #cute ! 💜💗🍧 (Taken with Instagram)
Well, I can’t find any pictures of me at my heaviest, but today I came across these:
I was cleaning out storage areas at my work, and I found a pair of my old pants. These pants used to be *tight* on me and now……well….when I found them and saw how big they are I actually cried a little. Just emotional.
Looking at where I am now, not only marks becoming healthy and strong(er) physically, but more so emotionally. I was in a much different *place* when I fit into those pants. It’s so very surreal to look back on all that now. Deep Breath.
Thanks for letting me share.
Don’t give up on moving forward. Don’t give up on your goals. Some goals take time. And that’s a good thing. Just don’t give up.
It is time for you to accept that I am fully aware, capable, and accountable for myself. I don’t need a hero or saving because I am not in distress. I’m not defined by my need of a man or a partner, but I have the right to be made happy by one, in a safe and supportive relationship. I am not defined by my weight, hair, makeup, skin color, or breast size. I do not exist to be your play toy. I will not wait my turn nor be quiet nor heed you. I know my physical and mental strength and I do not fear you. I am beautiful despite what you think, with or without your approval. This is my body, not yours.
