"My Weight-Loss Journey" by Miss Stephanie Week 15- "I'm So Sore"
I am so sore right now. This is my second week of school and I am going on my fifth weight training class. It feels good to be sore because I know that my workouts are starting to make a difference. Despite feeling sore, I have not noticed any other physical differences. I guess I should give it time. I am hoping that I will lose a lot more inches by working out because despite the large amount of weight I have lost, I don't feel like my body has changed much.
I think part of the reason that I feel disappointed in myself right now is because I collect before and after pictures. First, I love before and after weight loss photos, but they can also be deceiving. Sometimes there can be years between photos, or plastic surgery or whatever the circumstance that we don't know about. I guess, I had the expectation that when I lost around 70lbs I would be a "whole new me". I have quickly come to realize, that despite the weight loss I am still me; both my ups and downs. Losing weight is an amazing feeling and so beneficial, but it is not an over-night miracle. I am constantly working on not reverting back to my old habits and trying to stay motivated on my exercise. I don't want to be a Debbie downer but I just think its important to realize that as amazing as WLS is, its just the beginning to a life-long journey.
On a more posative note, I am so close of meeting the largest of my weight loss history! I am only a few lbs away from reaching the 100s! Anyone who has been obese can understand how excited I am to get under 200lbs. I am that much closer to being the happy, healthy and thin person I used to be. Right now I just need to continue taking baby steps and realize how far I have come. #wvmchealth #wvmcweightlosssolutions ... See MoreSee Less
