From the emotional/psychological stand point, I am noticing a difference. It's mostly in my confidence in myself. I was so broken for so long that I have a hard time coming into this new me after the past few years. It took me going through some intense therapy to realize that I'm worth it just as I am. I have grown over the past couple of years and established a self worth and have been okay with who I am. I knew that I had to love me for me before I could approach any type of weight loss program. I have noticed lately that with my current weight loss, I have become more outgoing and even daring. I mean, hello I went on a blind date! I am actually looking forward to doing things that would once hinder me because of my weight and how I felt about myself. I re-read some of my posts from a couple of years ago and finally realized that I was pretty miserable with who I was. All because of my weight and the things I associated with it. As I am getting beyond those mind sets, I am becoming free. And it's a freeing experience to not hold onto those emotions or feeling any longer. So, I am embracing the sassy, more confident me. Look out world!

Can you tell a difference?
