SATURDAY'S WITH STEF: I Am Living & Loving For The First Time In My Life!

12:00 AM


These past few days, I realized not everyone will understand my new way of life. Not everyone will get that fitness is apart of who I am. Not everyone CAN understand the journey I have been on with weight loss unless they are going through it or went through it. And let's be honest, does the journey ever really end? No....lol

Some will never know what its like to be told "But you have a pretty face.". Go into a store and stand there in tears because they have nothing that fits you and what does fit you feels and looks like a tent on you. They will never know what it's like to have a guy at the bar pass you up because, although you may have a pretty face, your weight is a factor. They will never know what it's like to be out of breath after just walking a few short blocks or upstairs. Never know what it's like to have holes in your jeans from your thighs severely rubbing up against each other. They will never understand that feeling of watching what you eat, counting points/calories, sweating your butt off in the gym. They will never know what it's like to step on a scale and see that number go down and yet your still a winner despite losing. 

THEY WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE OVERWEIGHT.

Why, because they are naturally thin. 

And that is okay.

For the first time in my life I have a LIFE. I work my butt off, I take care of what needs to be done, I am setting goals for myself and knocking them out of the park. I am eating healthy. I am exercising and I have completely changed my lifestyle according to what I want my future looks like.

For once in my life I am not wearing a tent. I running up and down hills. I am dating. I am getting free drinks at the bar. I am the woman men want to be around. I am the woman  who is making new female friends because I realize how important it is to have positive women and people in my life. I am active. I am climbing rocks at The Grand Canyon when in 2009, I couldn't even hike through the Yunque rain forest.

I AM LIVING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE...

I AM LOVING MYSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE.

It's exciting...It's scary.

It's an amazing feeling.

All I ask is for support.

For positivity.

For love.
