HerStrawberri's Journal, 05 November 2011

I have officially lost more weight then I need to lose. For so long I had this huge # looming in front of me whenever I weighed in. NOW, That # is less then what I have lost. It's so crazy thinking about where i was 6 months ago. I just re-read some of my earlier journals and it's just such a huge difference from then to now. It makes me sad to think back on those dark days. Don't get me wrong, i still have dark days, lately it seems like I'm having alot more, but nothing like back then. Has it been the weight loss? I honestly don't think so. i think that has been the catalyst I needed to just START. Start living my life again. START being the person I used to be. I smile so much more now. I laugh. I'm actually HAPPY to get out of bed. Maybe not every day, but at least I can say it's SOME of the days. I'm TRYING. I'm LIVING. I'm SUCCEEDING.

I'm in a reflective mood today. I'm also very emotional. (Thanks to stupid TOM) So I'm not going to go on and on because it will be all girly and emotional. =) I will spare you guys THIS TIME. =)

I'm just HAPPY. and I wanted to share that with you. YOU have been my support family for over 6 months. Yes, I have a wonderful GF that supports me and loves me so very much...But YOU guys have listened, and commented and have encouraged and supported and well, just THANK YOU. i would not be at 90 lbs lost without you.


Congratulations! That is an amazing accomplishment and SOOOO inspiring to someone new and struggling like me. I get how you feel from the dark days to now, I feel the same from stopping alcohol/pot. BUT I still feel like there's so much further to go (with the weight!!). I hope you have a great day. It's so awesome to hear about your happiness. YOU DESERVE IT!!

That's so awesome Dawn! 90 pounds.... that's amazing!! You have slowly changed your perspective on how you see life and it's amazing to see the progress you've made!

Congratulations, Dawn! That IS an incredible feat - having lost more weight than you have left to lose! So cool. And yeah - I'm sure the weight plays a part in your new found happiness, but only to the degree that it's a REFLECTION of all your "inner" work. It's such an important journey we're all on - SO many lessons and self-discoveries, so much learning going on ... sometimes unbeknownst to us! lol... Anyway, so good to hear you are so happy and positive and motivated. It's awesome. But the credit goes to yourself - not your FS support team ... lol... Oh, this place is a HUGE support and a huge help to us along the way. But it's just like everything else in life - when it gets down to it, it's up to us individually. Give yourself a pat on the back and give yourself a great big hug. You deserve it, girl! Have a great weekend.

You're right,it's about changing the way you think about yourself that changes everything.the inside changes with the outside.

That is an INCREDIBLE feat! I think about that point all the time. I say to myself, if only I can lose enough weight to say that I've lost more than I need to continue to lose, I'll feel like I'm finally doing something! To see you do it, just tells me that it can be done. Congrats and thank you for always being truthful and inspirational! :)
