I'm not where I wanna be, but I'm closer than where I started.
P.s This is gonna be a sort of long one.
PRT weighins were yesterday and normally I stress about making sure I never get taped and feeling that being taped meant I was "fat". But this time was different. Ever since I have got back from deployment I've have gained weight, not a lot and it's probably mostly muscle (haven't really checked into it). I eat relatively healthy and typically exercise at least 5-6 times a week but strive for 2 times a day. I weighed myself last week to see where I was at. Seeing that number rise was scary and quickly threw me into panic mode and had me thinking I was "fat". But I'm smart enough to know that the weight on the scale is a MINUSCULE thing (won't say that it doesn't matter at all but it's not the most important thing). The scale doesn't tell me how much I love my body or how hard I'm working nor does it show my determination. It's just a stupid number. I, of course, passed my tape by leaps and bounds and that's all the matters. I am happy in this body, I'm happy with the work I have put in and I'm blessed every single day and no scale can take that away. I don't think I'm "fat" (fuck you haters that are probably thinking otherwise; you're irrelevant). I'm healthy and I'm happy and I'm so lucky to look up to girls that promote body positivity such as @aubernutter @fitnika101 @iskra.
