A Lot Can Happen In 3 Years
This morning, Facebook prompted me to share the picture on the left, but I couldn't do that without reflecting on what's happened, and just how much life can change in 3 years.
On the left was from May of 2014, the right was from February 2017.
In May of 2014, I was wearing jeans with a waist size of 52, and weighing somewhere around 350 lbs. I could only shop at a Big & Tall store. there were days I was depressed about it, and some days I didn't even think about it. "It was what it was."
As I'm writing this, I fit into jeans with a waist size between 38 and 40 (depending on where it comes from). I fit comfortably into a 2X shirt, and haven't shopped at a big & tall shop in months.
I'm amazed at the progress I've made, and grateful for all the support I'd had. I'm having one of those "surreal" moments sitting here just realizing how far I've come.
I've felt myself get more confident in life, and have had more energy than I've ever had before. I know I'm heading in a good direction.
