Ok, I'm a little late getting today's post to you... but last night I went out for a work party.
To be quite honest, I was a little hesitant about going. I haven't been in the strongest of places, emotionally. And I was worried about what alcohol was going to do to my emotions. Honestly, I didn't really want to cry in front of everyone I work with... nor did I want to turn into a huge bitch and start fights with people...
Thankfully, none of those things happened.
I had a great time. I laughed a lot. And I got a really good glimpse of my old self. The "fun" Kerstin. It was really nice to see her out and about, all sassy and loud and ballsy. I miss that girl.
Last night, got me thinking about this journey to happiness that I'm on. I've come a long way since starting therapy and trying to lose weight. The biggest change? I no longer cry at the drop of a hat. I've learned to let things go and deal with the challenges in front of me. Something that seemed impossible just a few short months ago.
As far as the weight-loss goes-- I'm 40 pounds lighter and that in and of itself is an amazing accomplishment. I haven't been 319 pounds since 2010. THREE years ago! Man, that's crazy. Of course, my nutrition goals went out the window... but it was totally worth it! :)
That's all I really have today. my hang over isn't allowing me to go too in depth. But I just want to say that I'm really proud of how far I've come in such a short time, and I'm really excited to see where this journey is going to take me in the future.
