Successfully losing weight

I think most of my friends know that I am trying to lose weight. Some times I cannot control my diet and go wild and berserk(after turning vegan/vegetarian I can safely say that there's less things for me to eat heheheh) and I don't have as much time to exercise as I did during the holidays(thank you school) but I have actually lost a total of 8kg since I decided that I'm really going to work hard to lose weight, which was around February or March. Every day I wake up and I think about losing weight til' I'm in the healthy weight range but some times that's not enough motivation for me control my diet. I think about the benefits. I will be healthier, I can wear clothes without feeling self-conscious, I can run without stopping every kilometer and feeling out of breath, I will look better. That's pretty much most of the reasons why I want to lose weight.

I want to lose another 30kg because that's where my healthy weight range is. You can see that that's really far and I've never disclosed information about my weight before, I'm actually 87kg now. I always feel embarrassed when people asked me about my weight and even though I didn't really care about how fat I was(and still am actually), I didn't like it when people seemed shocked and tell me I'm almost double of their weight. I really hated it.

I'm going to lose more weight(in the healthy way, of course) and I will reach what I want to be soon. AWESOME ;)

Feeling grateful

I've learned so much in the past few days. A really invaluable lesson, I can say. So many words, but I can't seem to choose the right words to describe how I'm feeling.

I am very thankful for life. To be given a life, to be able to breath, to be able to walk, to be able to sing(although I'm horrible at it), to be able to see, smell, and touch. And that's not all I'm thankful for.
Without my family and friends, my life wouldn't be anything special. My life may not be the best, I may not have wealth and I may not have the healthiest body, but I am so thankful I have a life. A life where memories can be created, where experiences can be built and 50 years later I would probably be telling these stories to my kids.

I really don't know how to express my gratitude. I've learned that, feeling grateful and feeling good would just unveil a better tomorrow. I have dreams, I have hopes and slowly, I see them coming true.

Thank you life ♥
