Hi there folkarinos! Oh happy day I am finally seeing the scale moving in the downward direction! I am down 6 pounds today! It feels like a present since the beginning of this week was not stellar (lost out on a job promotion..le sigh). A big loss is just what I needed!
I have been realizing more and more what this journey is all about. It is not about the weight loss but rather it's about finding out who I am, what I want and the person I want to be. I am finally growing up. That stubborn little girl inside of me is no longer running the show. Oh don't you worry she rears her head at times but overall the adult Lynne is finally in charge. I am facing things that I have been hiding from for years. Starting with the fact that I really was an addict. I have done things to feed this addiction that do not speak of the person I truly am or want to be. Knowing this does not make me sad though. It makes me thankful. Thankful that I finally woke up, shook off the blinders and did the momentary painful thing. Thankful that my friends and family never gave up on me. Thankful that they are here now, supporting me. While I may have disappointed them all at one point or another I hope that they can see the change in me. I know I can.
Happy Wednesday Everyone! More weight loss on it's way and who knows..maybe even some exercise (she says begrudgingly)
