Losing weight is not only a physical journey. It is also a mental one.
Being a bigger person you deal with a lot of anxiety that most normal-sized people would never truly understand.
I lived in constant fear.
I fear I would break a chair.
Or would be able to fit in that chair?
Can my hips fit into that chair?
Will I be able to put on this seat belt.
I could go on. But I think you get the point.
Even after losing over 160 lbs I find myself sometimes assessing the situation I’m in.
It’s like my mind hasn’t caught up to the fact that I’m actually smaller.
Or maybe it’s just a habit.
This weight loss journey has been an emotional ride. I’ve cried because I sat in a chair and my hips didn’t feel like they were being squeezed.
I cried when I didn’t need a seat belt enhancer in a plane.
Simple things that most normal size person take for granted I’ve celebrated because they were difficult for me to do.
To someone who hasn’t been severely overweight they may not understand this post. But I truly am I adjusting in my new body.
Some days it’s truly strange to be able to go up a flight of stairs and not feel like I’m dying.
But I’m grateful!
