And then I discovered blogland. I began changing and improving and fixing things around the house. I was so motivated!
This is me today:
In this picture I am wearing a size 16. I'm too large for my frame, but I've still not put 30 of the pound I lost back on.
I am having a lot of fun making home improvements, and sewing dolls. And when I am able to eat vegetables again, (I have major food allergies), I am confident that I will fit into that size 12 again, and maybe even continue in the weight loss journey. I need to love myself for who I am today. And do the best I can in any situation. That's why I've named this post "Getting real."
Life is all about balance. I am still learning how to balance my own life. And while I can do a lot of things really well, I can't do them perfectly without letting something go. I got a ton of compliments on the day that I wore that red dress, that I made for myself. I need to own that, and not deny the beauty that is in me. I may have a muffin top, and more junk in the trunk than I'd like. But there are more important things to focus on right now.
