I wanted to blog about this so I can go back and re-read it when I forget..or feel lost.
One of the hardest struggles during my weight loss journey and life in general is working on my confidence. Often, I am the one who believes in me the least. I forget how far I have come, all that I have done, all the HARD work I have put in to get where I am. Sometimes I am my own worst enemy.
I am working on learning to be kinder to myself, more confident in myself, and loving myself more.
One of my girlfriends told me tonight, "You are the most accomplished person I know". It made me literally take a step back. It made me look at myself, almost as an out of body experience. And what I saw amazed me.
I have taken back control of my life. I made the step to change my life with VSG. I took on the unknown and kicked its ass into submission. I have put my dreams out there to the universe and went out and took them for myself. I am in shape and healthy, and In 100 short days I will be moving to the Carribean for veterinary school, those were my dreams. And I made them happen.
I forget sometimes how powerfu I am. My life over the last few years proves to me that I go for what I want and dont take no for an answer.
So, Kristen, read this and remember these words when you are down and questioning yourself. You are POWERFUL, SPECIAL, KIND, DESERVING,BEAUTIFUL, and SMART. You are a force and only you can hold yourself back. Nothing can stop you if you believe in yourself!!!!!
Love yourself and the rest will follow. AND, keep reaching for your dreams!
