oh snap she didn’t!

These past couple of months have been both surprising and challenging…

I’ve lost over 10 lbs since the end of December and I’m very excited. With the help of Weight Watchers and a great leader, I’m addressing my weight issues and my insecurities. It’s hard to talk about my weight and my issues, but I know that in order to move forward, I must address my past, and what has led me to this point, both good and bad.

I had an endoscopy to determine why I’ve been having chronic stomach pain for the past few months. I was put under local anthesia in order to have the endoscopy done.  Honestly, I made a bigger deal out of it than it needed to be. Since it was since something I never had done, I was freaking out. I thought the worst things were going to happen. What if there were complications, what if I wasn’t going to wake up? Those were the thoughts that were running through my mind.  A week after the endoscopy was done It was determined that I have chronic gastritis. Thus, I have to stay away from alcohol and very spicy foods.

I also had my role removed last month. It was getting to the point where having it was uncomfortable. It was something I had to do. When I was laying down to have the mole removed, All I could think of was this was the beginning of an era. I knew that if I could have the mole removed, I could do anything.

Something that has stuck out to me was a quote that a fellow Weight Watcher had said a few weeks ago:

We please others first not to please them, but to protect our image. We want to show others that we are the best, even at our expense.

It just shows at the end of the day, we have to put ourselves first regardless of what others will think. In order to prosper, we have to not only be happy with ourselves, but also confident.
