And I almost think that has been the most life changing part. The people who love me could care less about what size pants I am wearing, but the fact that my inner light is shining through, FINALLY, has been a change they can all see.
This might be hard to believe, but old Jess was kinda shy. Not really around people that she knew well, but in most other situations. She was self conscious, and really unsure of herself. She is incredibly uncomfortable with her body and hide from the spotlight.
She wouldn't talk about her binge eating, let alone share her raw parts with the entire internet. She preferred to stay in, sit on her computer, and keep to herself.
She was not happy.
But through hard work and self love, she is a completely different person.
Ok I am gonna stop talking about myself in the 3rd person lol. And it's crazy the difference I can see in my face, not just weight loss wise, but self confidence wise. It is like it literally shines from my eyes.
Completely aside from the physical transformation in each of those pictures, look at my face. I look happier and more confident because I am!
Self confidence shines brighter than anything else. I am really proud of what I have lost. But I am even more proud of what I have gained.
