It has been a few weeks since I vow to lose the extra weight that has been making uncomfortable.
It has been two weeks since, I started taking small steps toward my Chubz-to Fit; and I must say that I am so proud of myself for making an effort at least 3 times a week to go run outside. I started forcing to go outside every morning even if it is for a 10 minutes cardio workout. I figure even with 10 minutes everyday, progress will be made.
It has been only two weeks and I can already see the difference. You probably wondering if I drop any weight ? The answer is I DON’T KNOW. I refuse to let the scale discourage me. I am not weighing myself until I feel like I really drop some weight. For now I am focusing on my Self-Perception because it has been affected negatively as I was gaining weight over the years.
This journey is also an opportunity for me to accept myself with all my flaws, my insecurities, my weaknesses; fix my self-image, boost my self-love. Guess what is helping do just that? Wearing my natural hair: wearing No weave, No wigs has been so therapeutic. I know, you are wondering what my hair has to do with weight loss? Well this may sound silly but I used to hide my fluffy cheeks and my round head under a long lace front. In my mind, long straight wigs give me the illusion of having a slim face. And so this is how I have been avoiding to see the truth about my weight gain.
But now I am changing that. I am making small steps count; whether there are small steps toward physical change or emotional change. Acknowledging my feelings about my weight is what has been motivating to make my small steps count.
