Day 209

Wednesday 27th July 2016

I have found lately that I have done a little bit of looking back over the past year. This time last summer I was on holiday just like I am now. I was eating whatever I wanted like pizzas, burgers, chips, pastries, ice creams.  I even ate between my meals. However I was piling on the weight fast. I had no energy to do anything and my health was not very good. 

This holiday everything is totally the opposite. I am eating healthier, I have so much more energy ( I find myself saying that I would rather walk than catch a bus) and my health has improved. 

One thing I have noticed this holiday is that my skin has improved. I was diagnosed with being photosensitive which mean my skin reacts in the sun. I have had it for years and my skin gets very itchy to a point that I can’t stand it any longer. I have been told by the doctors that there is nothing that can be done, I just need to stay out of the sun. This condition has now gone, I haven’t been itchy once. 

It’s amazing the change that you can do in less than a year. 

It’s like the change a tiny plant makes in a year. It grows and I feel I have grown in self confidence this year. It changes shape and size I have definitely done that. And it eventually blossoms bringing its true self out into the light.  I am getting there on that one as I still have a long way to go. So I would say that I am the bud gradually coming out

I know it looks like I still have a lot of weight to lose but I feel, by me looking back, it helps me to move forward. Especially as I have found it particularly hard this holiday.
