Day 84: The picture on the left was from my trip to Hawaii 🌺 Jan '17, at just about my highest weight yet😞223lbs. The trip was amazing, but so many photos went unseen because I was EMBARRASSED by who I saw looking back at me, we are always our own worst CRITIC.
My journey started again in 2014, I worked hard to get in shape but one knee injury after another and I just let it all go😔 Between my weight and the knee and the depression, I was a MESS. I didn't just fall off the band wagon...I fell out and was dragged behind through dirt. I skipped events to avoid the stress of finding clothes that would fit, always offered to take the picture so I wouldn't have to be in it, and instead found myself numbing all of these emotions with another beer...and another ..and another. My drinking was out of control, I was going downhill, dated one jerk after another, because why would a nice guy want a girl like that? I gave up on myself. But I hid it all behind a smile and all my energy went into my work, which was my only happy place.
The photo on the right is 46 lbs later. Weighing a lot less, but smiling a lot more. I weighed in today at 177🙌 ❤️I'm not ashamed of who I see- I know I'm not done, but I'm on my way! I'm learning to love the person looking back and that's all that matters. Everything is slowly piecing itself together and tbh... I'm just really fucking happy ❤️💋✌️ Not everyone will understand your journey but it doesn't matter. I choose to share this because my strength and motivation has come from following other journey's such as @graciesjourney
