Affirmation Helped Me Reach 92kgs

This article in The New Age Newspaper helped me recognize for myself how much weight I’d actually lost. One of the reasons I am sharing my experience here is because the affirmation I receive from people, who feel inspired by my journey, reminds me how much I’ve achieved.

Now, at 92kg, I feel the anxiety of what happens if I pick the weight up again? Although I’ve never lost this much, more than 60kg to date, before,

I have lost 20kg before and picked it up again. Being reminded by the way you see me helps me internalize it. I’m still surprised when I see myself reflected in a full-length mirror.

While I was obese I objected to people telling me what they thought about my body. Now I rather like it.

  • Well in that case Brian, let me tell you what I think of your body. And of you. I think you are both wonderful! I have enormous respect for what you have achieved. You are an inspiration. Congratulations on all that you have lost. And gained. x Sam

  • Well done Brian. Absolutely fantastic ! (The western, carbohydrate-centred food industry has a lot to answer for). Keep it up. Regards. Derek. Ps Please excuse the Avatar (which is registered with wordpress). Perhaps requires some adjusting 🙂
