Some people don't understand how seriously hard the last 10 lbs are until you're stuck in them. Like trying to climb through a mud pit and you can't pull hard enough on that rope to get your foot out onto the solid ground. (Yes...this girl who doesn't like the mud just made a point using a mud run experience). And yes I am super excited for where I am. I worked my tush off...but I guess the best way to explain this is this. It's the wall. It's the final wall to break down before I can stand and shout to the world.
Anyway, I had the shocking eye opening weigh in this weekend. It finally happened. After being stuck in the low 150s since March, I broke through! I started crying. A little dramatic to some but I haven't seen 140s since high school and it was not a healthy 134-140 then. The "now me" is a beast compared to the "me" of then. As a matter of fact, I'd kick that heading down the road of anorexia butt of mine! Literally! And throw a burger in her mouth too. When I start to think of all the things I've done to my body...it's just depressing but I have changed that.
I have found who I want to be and I have become her.
