100 pounds down today

There is 12 years between these photos. It has taken a long time and a lot of setbacks and I know I still have some ways to go. Probably another 55 pounds to get to under 25 bmi. However, even if I never get there, I am loving where I am, and that is important. The biggest thing has been learning to love myself NOW. Not when I weigh less, or meet my goal. I am beautiful now. And I was beautiful then. And I deserve this.
It took 12 years and I had 3 children, my first little baby died at 17 days old, the second I gained 30 pounds after pregnancy, and had to lose it again. My third I got hyperthyroidism while pregnant. And despite being hyperthyroid, (yes hyper), I gained 45 pounds after I gave birth. I had to lose that again too and have half my thyroid removed. It's been hard, and realistically I'm not very well at the moment. But despite it all. I've learned to love who I am, and never let my weight hold me back. Swimming, cycling, running, hiking, I'll do it all. The only thing that holds me back sometimes is my health issues.
Wherever you are now, love who you are. You are deserving of love, no matter how fat or thin you are.
Never give up believing that.
