Hi guys !
There´s a lot of difficult things happening in my life right now; no love life whatsoever, it´s getting really hard to loose the weight and I so want to get to my goal weigh, I´ve never been thin in my entire life, I´m 28 and I want to get the weight excuse crossed off of my list, I´m really unmotivated with my job and as a consequence I´m not giving a 100%, and I hate that ... and there are a lot of family issues going on, and with me away it only makes things harder
But as I woke up this morning and things started on the wrong foot (alarm didn´t go off, metro wasn´t working, it was pouring and cold, no taxis), so I decided to walk the 50 min to work and although it was raining, I loved it ! I have to cross through a big park to get to work and because of the rain, I had the park almost to myself, the sound and the smell of the rain on the trees combined with the soft music playing on my Ipod, it all calmed me down and reminded me how great life really is, and it got me thinking about all the good things I have going on...
1) Despite all matters, I do love my family oh so very much, and I know that they love me deeply too, so if we have that, I know that all the other problems are smaller... I just need to learn not to worry so much and let go of the things I can´t control
2) I just had a tummy tuck and a breast lift (46 days ago) and now that the swelling is going down I´m completely in love with my new figure... I´ve never looked that good naked before... I look damn hot .. hehe
3) I´ve come such a long way on the weight loss, I look at pictures and I still can´t believe how I look right now and deep down I do know that I will get to goal, and as hard as it is, I am grateful for the process, I learned so much about me, I´m still learning
4) I was blessed with wonderful friends in Madrid, they are like my second family, and we are all going to Milan and Como soon... I love italy, I love italians, I love italian food (but I´ll try to behave while I´m there, lot´s of walking, lot´s of salads, no pizza, no lasagna, but I´m afraid I´ll have to cave to the gnocchi)
I´m also including some pictures, as a celabration of this journey...
And I apologize for the very long thread, but when you feel overwhelmed with life, take a deep breath, remember this too shall pass, and make note of all the good things you have going on, sadly it´s the bad that catch a larger part of our attention ...
And I also wanted to say thanks to all of you, you are a constant source of inspiration to me, you keep me going !!
