Does anyone else look in the mirror sometimes and not recognise their reflection, or expect to see the girls they were at the beginning of their weight loss/fitness journey 🤔?
That basically sums up my relationship with my reflection. I still see that 253lb girl, with the puffy face, ruddy complexion, and dressed in size 22 clothes. It's very rare that I actually see the woman I am today when I first look at my reflection, it takes a good 5 minutes until I see me as I am today.
That 253lb girl still haunts me and I think she always will, she'll always be there taunting me to binge, to have just one more biscuit or piece of chocolate. She'll always be trying to tempt me to have something naughty, instead of something healthy and nutritional. But the woman I am today 99% of the time wins (we all need a treat every now and again though 🙊). I won't ever go back to that 253lb girl that was always unhappy, and anti-social. That being said, I was part way there last year and earlier this year after my dad passed away. Thankfully I didn't let it snowball too far (although farther than I wanted). I sorted my head out in March though, and I've lost 49lbs in 14 weeks on my own, and got to my lowest weight ever. Honestly determination and self belief are such a powerful combination, and when we believe in ourselves and have the determination we can achieve anything #transformationtuesday 💪🏻.
