Over My Head

Things are finally starting to sink in. I don't ever have to live the life I once lived. I'm not that girl anymore. That has been such a difficult thing to process. 

I've gone from zero confidence to finally trying to build some. It's just plain hard sometimes to get in a swim suit. But slowly that's changing. It's hard to walk into a store and try on clothes. The old parts of me want to cringe at it sometimes. I keep expecting to see a higher dress size. Parts of me have a really hard time accepting that I actually lost weight. 

But at the end of the day, the numbers don't lie. Even when my big girl mentality creeps back in, I always have solid proof that I've come a long way.

Total Inches Lost: 80.25

So....If you take a tape measure, that's actually a lot taller than me. Like way over my head! 


I haven't lost a whole lot of weight since the beach measurements. I've been focused on toning. Teaching Zumba classes has helped so much with that. 

So....That's where I am for now. 
(No, I have no idea how far I'm going. I'm just dancing and eating right. What happens happens and I don't sweat it!)

  2. Love this. I still have the whole journey ahead of me but by this time next year I am hoping to say similar things. I will remember this post. And you are quite beautiful, with or without the weight loss, if I may say so. But how you feel inside is what matters most and this has been/still is an amazing transformation.
