I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone for the outpouring of support around my last post. I spent a majority of the day fielding text messages and emails that ranged from supportive to not so supportive. I got questioned on my sanity and my intent, as well as some not so great comments, which I don’t concern myself to much with because it is the world of the internet and that happens. Ninety percent of what I got was people relating to what I was saying and encouragement. Knowing you are not alone is a powerful feeling and motivator.
I ended that post with a “I am not sure what is next” type feeling. A few people have chimed in with offers of solutions, which were really great. Over this last week I have really been looking into what is next. Here is what I know…
- Writing that post was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I don’t regret doing it for one minute. I am tired of having my self-worth tied to my eating habits and feeling nothing but shame about this area of my life
- I became an introvert because of this constant shame and lack of self-esteem, but those that know me, know that I am very much not an introvert. I am tired of hiding.
- I don’t have an exact plan of attack on how to move forward, but I know that I have a lot of amazing support and I promise to share my journey. I do have different avenues that I am looking at and researching, so stay tuned!
