Truth or Consequences
I made a decision to be truthful with myself. The truth was I was morbidly obese, and had buried myself in more ways than one. The truth was scary. The truth was painful. But as the saying goes, the truth shall set you free. Once I told myself the truth, more truths unfolded. With one truth came another. The true me is still being revealed. On the inside and the outside. It’s hard work, truthfully. I have to do that work. No one can do it for me. I chose not to seek surgical assistance, though the truth is, my situation was dire enough to warrant such medical intervention. There’s no way around it. It truly starts and stops with me.
I have lost 170 lbs. It has taken me some time. Life did not pause while I did this. I suffered loss on a myriad of fronts. From loved ones, to the comfort of my familiar home, I found myself saying goodbye to so many things. But through my faith, I said goodbye to the days of not being truthful, and began to change my life. I am not finished with my weight loss. I want to share the rest of my journey with anyone that may find it helpful or encouraging. Please check in as I update you on the last leg of this weight journey.
I know I’m not alone.terey
