So I recently read this article: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/fitness/weight-loss/how-kate-lost-50kg-in-nine-months/news-story/3ca5c0ffff76a2621b9cff156c0fd91c
The article is about Kate Writer who went from 120kg to 50kg in 9 months, the most impressive part, she did it naturally! I love reading stories like these because at the weight I was, bariatric surgery sometimes seemed like the only option, not an option I was willing to choose.
“People see my before and after photos and they automatically assume I’ve had surgery, but I haven’t.
“I’m lucky because I’m young and my body has bounced back but I’ve put in a lot of hours in the gym.”
When I am feeling down or like I need inspiration I find articles like these, people who have lost all the weight are are now maintaining. People who have gone from having the odds stacked against them, to being proud of who they are.
As I continue to loose and the fat is disappearing there is loose skin to replace it. I can look at myself in the mirror and logically see the areas where I have lost but it is difficult sometimes to feel true love for myself. I would hands down take the loose skin over it being filled with fat. I think it is finally becoming real that I will never have that “perfect” body that you see in the media everywhere, because it doesn’t exist! Kate exemplafies this, she accepts her body and is proud! I hope I can follow in her foot steps!
As for today I am taking it one step at a time and not getting stuck in my head, what are you guys doing to keep you self focused on the positive? Let me know below!
