I really don't have time to blog... I have 3 big deadlines before Wednesday all on projects I haven't really started, but I needed to clear my mind, and blogging does that.
I did a lot of reflecting this weekend. I can't believe it has been one year since I first decided I'd be getting banded--one of the most important decisions of my life thus far.
July 4, 2012, I laid on a beach in Miami and decided my life HAD TO CHANGE.
And I'm so thankful every day for that decision, and for my lap band.
July 4 cookout with one of my best friends :)
I took this yesterday, because a year ago, I never wore my hair up by choice. I always kept my hair down, because I wanted to hide my fat face.
I know that I am still a big/plus size girl, but I haven't felt so confident in at least 10 years. I don't think losing 90 pounds looks as different as I might have imagined it would, but it sure does feel different.
Want a reminder of what I looked like with an extra 90 pounds of fat?
Summer 2012 with my Sis and Nephew in California
I just feel really positive about my decisions and all the changes I've made since last summer. It feels so good when people tell me that I motive/inspire them. Some 'healthy weight' people have told me recently that I inspire them to work out harder because they've seen me busting my ass. That feels better than I can possibly put into words.
I have been struggling with some tough things about work and dating, so I just really wanted to focus on something positive today!
Happy Monday Everyone :)
