Week 12 – Day 7 — Lighter?

People are starting to comment that I have lost weight. I’m really not sure that I have (refuse to step on the scale), but I’ll take the compliments nonetheless!

I’ve been on this road for 12 weeks. I have learned to eat healthy for the longterm, instead of for a short term purpose. I have also learned that exercise can be challenging AND enjoyable – and can be less than an hour a day. This is a lifestyle, not a quick fix.

I HAVE lost weight in a sense. I’ve lost the pressure to look a certain way and the emotional weight that goes with that. I feel a lot lighter in that sense ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s not easy. It is still challenging!! But I am starting to see that there is life after competition. It feels pretty great! There is a light at the end of the tunnel!!

Take care,
Melissa
