Don’t Focus On The After Effects Of Losing Weight

If you’ve been overweight for a very long time, every time you step on the scale and you notice that you’ve lost some weight it is a very nostalgic feeling.

A high that cannot be explained unless you’ve been in the situation.

But, if you’ve also been overweight you know the changes that occur aren’t always the ones you want, especially in women.

We’ve abused our bodies for so long and stretched it beyond its capacity that we know that loose skin is inevitable.

But we hope and pray that maybe you’d be the rule to the exception.

You may also buy into the gimmicks of creams and potions or other “quick fixes”.

I know for me it’s hard to look in the mirror to see all the loose skin in between my thighs, my stomach, and my arms.

It’s also hard to literally watch my breast and my butt “deflate”. I know it sounds like an exaggeration, but that’s the only way that I can actually describe the process.

Would I still rather be overweight and not have loose skin, have my breast not sag, and watch my butt not get flatter?

No!

I accept my new reality. I don’t like it much but I accept it.

It affects me mentally at times. It’s like seeing battle scars of all the harm I’ve done to myself.

I sometimes wished I didn’t let myself go this far. But I did.

But at least I’m fighting hard so that these scars won’t be in vain.

This is a tough journey mentally and physically. But, I’m so happy I didn’t give up this time!

Remember the first step is trying and the next step is not giving up when things get hard!

Keep going! If no one else believes in you know that I do. You’ve got this!
