I’m different now. This isn’t usually something I talk about but maaaan has it been a journey. There were several years where I completely let myself go. I didn’t consider my health and I was consumed with sadness. I didn’t use healthy coping mechanisms to handle the stress I chose alternatives and my body showed it. I no longer recognized the person in the mirror, not just physically but more so who I had become. I was a hermit. Depressed and lonely. This wasn’t me and I needed to make a change if it was ever going to be different. I also knew that I couldn’t do it by myself. I asked for help when I needed it. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help. The world is full of people that would truly love to help you get where you want to be. Remember that the journey will not be a short one. There will be days where you want to hang up your Nike’s and throw a middle finger to the treadmill, but remember to keep going. Remember why you started because I can promise you that it will be worth it. The best part of this journey has not been the physical changes but the emotional and spiritual growth I have experienced. The universe will bring people into your life that you never imagined you would connect with. Conversely, it also does some housecleaning you didn’t realize you needed. These are both gifts. I love myself again. Not because of the way I look but because of who I am, and that had been the greatest gift of this journey. If you’ve taken the time to read this, thank you and I hope this helps you or someone you know. We are all in this world together, let’s help each other
