Dat weigh-in, tho

So I know I mentioned on my Instagram that I weighed in on Monday and that I was not thrilled, but I didn’t really say why:

January 2nd, 2017. Weigh-in: 224.9

That’s two pounds higher than I was when I weighed in at this time last year. I did make a ton of progress last year, almost 40 pounds worth. Then in the last four months or so, I just let it go. Depression, pain, excuses… you name it. I wasn’t eating well and I wasn’t exercising, and I just let it go. So, here I am, starting again. And ya know what? That’s okay. I’m okay with it. I’m more okay with than I’ve ever been capable of being. And I truly hope that’s a good sign for me.

I asked L. to take some before pictures of me, so here those are:

Plus bonus cat, of course.

Size L Avia pants that my mom got me for Christmas (that I subsequently tore a hole in during a slide in volleyball) and my favorite t-shirt, from a mud race with my brother and his wife (men’s size medium). I could pick me apart for days, but instead I’m choosing to love me, and treat me the way I oughtta be treated, so I can accomplish my goals and bring myself joy. I got this–I fucking got this.

  1. I totally get not being thrilled with your January start point, I wasn’t happy with mine either. But just like you I took more “before/during” photos, and decided to handle it! We’ve got this girl!
