Trying to make myself happy is one of the hardest things I have ever done. Since January, I promised myself this would be my year. I wanted to lose weight, find myself, do things I love, and just make myself happy. In life, we always try to make others happy first and I am trying to put myself first for once. It is a long process and journey.
Starting in January I cracked down on myself about losing weight. I was at my heaviest weight and was not happy. I was very much in denial about it and it took the scale to really show me how much I had gained. I have lost some of the weight, I am almost half way to my goal weight and I already feel amazing.
I workout 5-7 days a week for at least a hour each time. Every day I get up and do my hair and makeup, even if I am not going anywhere. I can look good if I want to and for myself. I am trying to wear clothes I would not normally wear because I was not comfortable with my body.
I still have a ways to go on this journey, but I am already happy and my confidence is much better than it used to be. I am an amazing person and I only have to prove it to myself!
