I Didn’t Win..But I Did

Hey everyone!

So if you recall from a few blog posts ago I mentioned that I entered the Optifast New You contest. Basically you applied and they choose 3 winners and flew them to New York for a shopping spree and a makeover. After weeks of waiting I got the email that I wasn’t chosengiphy as a winner. If I said I wasnt upset over this, I would be lying. I definitly spent some time thinking about what I could have done or what made the pannel of judges not choose me. Then I realized how stupid that was! I was letting a group of people in a board room change the way I feel about my self!

Would I have liked to have won? YES! Of course, who wouldn’t? But I let the anticipation and pressure alter how I saw my self and my own beliefs and opinions. I love Optifast and it has helped changed my life, but I know its not the healthiest option out there! I was at my whits end and I needed to something drastic, luckily the optifast has stuck and I have been able to follow the program with out any major hiccups! The past few months have been life changing and I am so grateful for every up and down on this journey. For what ever reason I wasn’t meant to win and thats ok! It has taught me to be stronger in my resolve and not let pressure change how I act or how I see my self.

The way I look at it, I have won the best thing someone could win.

I won the chance to save my self, I didn’t run out the clock before it was too late, and have been given and taken the opportunities to love myself and grow as a person. I will continue to take every opportunity that comes my way because I am ready, and deserve, to live a life that is happy and healthy!
