Can she fit in the booth?
That girl at the top had no idea that in less than a year she’d be someone completely different. Not just physically, but mentally as well!
I’m about to be real honest with you guys. As shitty as it sounds back then I had given up on myself. My anxiety had taken over my life. I lived in fear of everything I did. I couldn’t go on a trip to #nola without worrying how I would get from bar to bar bc walking just wasn’t an option. I couldn’t ride the subway in New York because trying to squeeze my body through those turn stalls was almost impossible, and then walking up and down stairs was miserable. I couldn’t go to restaurants without fearing they would give us a booth and I’d have to say I can’t fit. But that’s not longer my life. I don’t have to live in fear. I won’t lie. Old Lo is still in there. Like last night I met @killinitwithkatie at @the_radiobar and she was sitting in a booth and I had little mini panic where I was like omg I can’t sit there. I can’t fit. And then low and behold. I FIT!!! Andddd I fit comfortably too! I legit have tears streaming down my face because it’s moments like these that make this all worth it. I worked so hard to get here and I’m so unbelievably proud of myself. And some days are sooo hard and soooo difficult, but it’s all worth it. I’m finally living my life. And that’s all I ever wanted.
If you want this. If you REALLY want this. You can do it too. If you can dream it, you can live it. Whatever it is. Weightloss, a new career, a new city to call home. Whatever it is. Whatever you want. You can have it. The world is at your fingertips. We just have to get out there and do it. Stop talking about it, and be about it. Put every ounce of you into it and believe in yourself. When it gets hard keep fighting. Keep pushing. Never give up. Lion heart.
