5 things weight loss has taught me about myself

1. My body is strong!
 In all fairness, after having two transplants I knew how strong my body is, but this weight loss journey reminded be how amazing the human body is, just when you feel like you’ve pushed yourself to the limit… you body let’s you know (after the pain has subsided) that it can go further and do more

2. Love the you body (the way it is right now!)

Looking at ahead can sometimes be harmful when it comes to losing weight, often times I get caught up in the “my goodness I so fat, I must have been ginormous before” syndrome. Even though I’m not at the weight I want to be, my confidence has grown so much, and I’m able to appreciate my curves (and show them proudly!) I can look at the mirror and say, “wow, Ty you look hot today” or “Man, you have awesome skin!” 50 pounds ago that was not happening, the goal was to pass the mirror and fit something… ANYTHING that fit

3.Clothes make a difference
I love bright colors, so I’ve purposely put away the black, brown, navy
s and grey’s and brightened my wardrobe. I’m finding that bright color complement my skin tone and I’m even doing more form-fitting  fabrics like spandex… its time for me to step out of the box… so now I’m going with the “I’ll try anything once” attitude. As you can tell I’m a bargain huntress… simple reason I don’t want to spend a lot of money of clothing I won’t be able to fit next summer…

4. Support is the key!
There is no way that I wouldn’t have been able to do this and keep accountable if it hadn’t been for the support my wonderful Blue Team! (And by extension SJT199). Even my sorority sisters have committed to being healthy. It’s amazing what happens when you surround yourself with like-minded individuals who want nothing but to see you succeed and reach your goals. I am blessed to have found such a wonderful group of people who frequently have to talk me off the ledge when I have a sudden and fierce cake craving

5. I love myself! And that makes this totally worth it
As mentioned in a previous post my journey to self  love has been a long and arduous one. But (I’ve said it so many times before) this has been more mental than anything else… when I started to clear the junk from my body, I HAD to clear the junk from my head…there is no other way to look at it..

Until next time!
