Here it is. My before is from 4 years ago. I started at 255 and hated everything about myself. I felt like I was always the center of attention and like I was being made fun of. Now years later I dropped a lot of weight and finally was able to break away from my unhealthy thinking. I finally had my eating and exercise going but my mind was still toxic. I struggle daily but finally feel like I am overcoming this lifelong anxiety that has everything to do with being obese in my teens. I wish I knew then what I know now - I wish I could go and visit my younger self and tell her it will all be better. I have taken my life back and found my self-respect. Self-love is something I will never lose again.
