Today is an odd day.  3 years ago I started my weight loss journey and it’s something that has changed my life.

I’ve changed physically, mentally and emotionally.  I’m stronger than I’ve ever been and there is no way I’m ever going to allow myself to go back to those bad lazy unhealthy habits. Not sure about what my old habits were, read this: https://mynakedjourney.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/my-old-lifestyle/

I still weigh and measure myself every Monday and today is no different.  Each day I have to decide what to eat, what to do for exercise and although I allow myself treats and rest days, I’m still in control of my body. I’m the one that makes the decision about my life.  I’m the one that has to live with myself.  I’m the one that determines what I do or don’t do.

Realising, understanding and accepting that it’s my life and I have to live with my choices, is a major step. Yes, I still struggle with all aspects of it, but that struggle is what gives me hope and satisfaction.  I’m still human (and female) so sure I’ll have my weak moments.  That won’t stop me or hold me back, it projects me forward like a decent kick in the butt.

I’m not sure if I’ll keep adding to this blog, perhaps I will, perhaps I won’t.  Either way, it’s been something that has helped me realise how far I’ve come.  Sometimes looking back is exactly what you need to be able to see the future. My future is brilliant, action packed and a lot more energetic that I could ever imagine.

If you’ve read all my posts, I say thank you.  I hope it’s been something you have laughed, cried and entertained you.  It’s details of my life for the last 3 years, it’s been real, exposed and honest.  That’s why it’s called My Naked Journey.
