Goodbye, perfection. Hello, one choice at a time.

Do you want to know the greatest thing I have ever done for my health? I threw perfection out the window. I have tried the perfection thing before. I lost weight! I lost weight FAST! Then I gained that weight back + a bunch of new weight even faster.

There are a bunch of moments that should have qualified as "rock bottom" moments in my past. Only being able to wear plus sizes, sizing out of the biggest plus size, airplane seatbelt extenders, the dreaded rollercoaster harness that ...
Do you want to know the greatest thing I have ever done for my health? I threw perfection out the window. I have tried the perfection thing before. I lost weight! I lost weight FAST! Then I gained that weight back + a bunch of new weight even faster.

There are a bunch of moments that should have qualified as "rock bottom" moments in my past. Only being able to wear plus sizes, sizing out of the biggest plus size, airplane seatbelt extenders, the dreaded rollercoaster harness that wouldn't buckle, getting married in a size 26 wedding gown, weighing 312 pounds at the end of my pregnancy and dealing with high BP throughout the pregnancy, barely being able to keep up with my toddler because I was so out of shape... oh-I've been there. For some reason, it took a scale registering "300.0 lbs" the day after my 29th birthday to REALLY wake me up.

That wasn't even my highest weight, but it was a weight that left me with no energy. I was trapped in my body and desperate to feel more comfortable in my own skin. I looked at that list and the even scarier one ahead of me. I decided to do the best that I could each day, and make the healthiest choices possible.

Over 4 months in and I still have so much to learn but I have come very far from where I was. I'm starting to see a happier person underneath my shell. I accept the fact that this is a lifelong, imperfect process. I am not a shining example of perfect choices all the time but I AM someone who refuses to give up on herself. I genuinely look forward to the future and what life will look like in a healthier place.

I am always appreciative of every single comment I get on one of my blogs! I don't have the time to respond to every one of them, but there are times where a comment really makes me think or touches my heart in a special way and I have to find time to respond. emoticon


Losing 50 pounds is an AMAZING achievement, and I hope you are very proud!! :D You are doing a great job! I was so glad to hear that you could relate to my uncensored blog, it reminds me that I'm not alone and that my thoughts aren't so crazy! At the same time, I am also sorry that you could relate to it, I know a lot of the stuff I mentioned were the negatives of this process, and it is a shame that we are dealing with them. I know to look at the big picture, the benefits far outweigh the pitfalls, and I wouldn't change it for the world! I just needed to kind of vent my frustrations for the time being. :)

Keep on sparking and keep up your amazing progress!!
