So, i've been meaning to do a post for a while now, from a far it looks like I've given up on my weightloss journey and in some respect its true, I have lost my way with slimming world and cooking and its something I really want to get back into however I like to look at it as I'm starting a different chapter. To many people, losing the weight seems to be the hardest part and although its the hardest challenge I've ever faced it seems the aftermath of excess skin, confidence and self acceptance is also a massive challenge. People say to me ' You must be so much more confident now' but when I think about it, although I'm healthier, I don't think I am. When I was bigger, I accepted myself for who I was. 25st and the only way was up and this I embraced for the longest time. Now at 13st, I know I have the strength in me to be smaller so I find it hard to embrace the me of here and now and constantly wish I was the 12, 11 or 10st Shannon of the future.
So this is me now. Embracing me. As I am. 13st and accepting this could be me forever and I'm okay with that. I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the last two years and followed me up till now. Honestly I couldn't have done it without you. I find it incredible how much support and love a complete stranger can show a person they don't even know and assist them in conquering their biggest fears and challenges and for that I consider you all a friend. From the bottom of my heart I thank you all and I would love it if you could all follow me on a new journey of finding me. What have you guys found challenging on their journeys? Does anyone else feel the same? I'd love to hear your comments!
I've posted this photo of me because through my tattoos i'm starting to feel more confident in my skin 🖤
