I would just like to start out by saying rejection sucks. Absolutely and totally sucks...no matter in what shape or form it comes.
This past weekend was an emotional and disappointing weekend. The end of a relationship.
In a matter of two days I gained 4 lbs. Eating right was really the last thing on my mind.
As each day passes though, I have found so many areas in which I am different compared to a couple of years ago.
As I shared in a post a few months ago, I've always dealt with insecurity. Not just insecurity with myself, but insecurity in pretty much every area of my life. In the past, disappointments and rejection of any kind would pretty much cripple me. I did everything to avoid putting myself in situations where that could even happen.
I'm actually happy to say that although rejection and disappointments still suck, they make me even more determined to continue on this weight loss journey. They don't cripple me like they have in the past.
Why do I feel different now?
Because I have come to realize my self-worth is not determined through other people's eyes.
I'm on my way to healing.
I was supposed to begin a new challenge on June 1. I'm late but I'm still going to do the challenge. It's called the Bikini Body Mommy 90 Day Challenge.
I'll be taking pics and measurements hopefully today. I'll post updates periodically, but I've decided not to weigh or measure myself again until the end of the challenge. I'll be hiding the scale. Between the challenge, running, and other cross training I should be one fit girl in three months!
So, here's to new beginnings and a renewed determination to continue working on being the best person I can be.
