It took me too long to start. Almost 20 years. But I have made a decision in may last year that I was going to change my habits. And I was going to do what I like and eat well. I knew it would be hard ( and still is) but I lost a couple of pounds and I feel proud of how far I came when we dont give up. 365 days had passed, and I still struggle with my lazyness and my love with chocolate and sugar. But, now I am a complete different person that I was in the past.
Now, I love myself more than anything and I care about my health. I love dance ballet all the days of the week, even being so damn bad at it, and even when I’m tired that I feel without energy, I keep dancing because it makes me forget my world problems. And makes me feel I am part of something.
I love go for a running when I wake up or in the end of the day, see the people running, whatching their lives and i love to pretend I am in a movie too, running before make a decision or something. I feel so alive. Running is like therapy, because I can breath and think about all my life.
Then, now I really fit in clothes that I always wished to fit in, but I was so far away to. And nothing is better than wear what you want and feel confident and pretty.
And now I love myself, take care of my health, my fashion sense changed I had a bunch of guys around my neck trying to kiss me and now I can choose who I want to talk, to flirt or something. Before, I always thought the other girls was more pretty than me, but now I know I am as much beautiful as other girls. Boys they love who love themselves. They like happy girls and girls who dont need them to be happy. I am good alone, I dont need you guys.
And sadly, I know I will always have issues with what I eat, if I workout or not, I will keep tracking to not overeat anything. But it will not control my life anymore as before.
If you are in the begginning of your journay, please, keep going! Life can be so sweet if you try hard for what you want! And worth it! Be health, be happy!
