As the temperature is rising, I look around to the renewal of spring and the birth of new beginnings.
I also reflect on the journey I've been on this past year. Taking that first step towards a healthier me was a very hard decision. I look at the me a year ago, and I'm appalled that I even thought I was happy. I was anything but happy with myself and the situation I had put myself in. I was destroying myself from the inside out, spiraling out of control without breaks.
Although I wish I could have been closer to my goals, I'm happy with the progress I've made. I've got tons of demons I still need to face head on though. Those voices that tell me I'm not progressing so I should just give up. Or if I make a poor choice with what I eat, I beat my self up and say that's it..may as well keep going. I've tried really hard to keep those demons at bay, but it's been a little hard lately.
Though it's still a few week until it's officially been one year since starting on my journey, I'm recommitting to ME! I can do this and no negative thoughts, temptations, guilt, etc will stand in my way. How can I when I've come this far?
