When we first start our Journeys I believe we all have an idea of what we would like to look like. Some of us have goals and ideas in our mind of what we would be at certain weights or how happy we would feel. I for sure never imagined that after 10 years I would still or my body would still be trained as it was the first day I left the hospital. Looking at me now some people may never believe that I struggled with my weight or even had issues regarding my weight. I used to be the type of person that was always so proud of myself and how far I have come and don't mistake me I really am truly proud of the courage and the strength and the dedication that my younger self had when I first had the surgery. When I first decided that weight loss surgery was for me. However now 10 years later I am in a different mind frame and society and people also look at me in a different frame of mind. 10 years later when you succeed and when you've accomplished your goals, and I know you will too! No one sees your struggle no one sees the pain no one sees the doctor visits no one sees the tears you cried to get here all they see is the success and they see in you now what they desire and to them you are now on the other side. On the other side of pain on the other side of the journey on the other side of lifes problems on the other side of emotional eating on the other side of having to manage and control your weight. However this choice this decision is a lifelong commitment and you have to know within yourself that although no one sees hears or remembers any of your struggles that you had. You know , you remember and that is where you're going to draw your strength to continue to succeed and to one day look back ten years later and say I am proud of who I am I am proud of how far I came and I am proud that I was able to break the chains of obesity. Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous 2018 from my heart to yours!
