In honor of me registering for my 2nd-ever half marathon race, here's a look back at my first ever race! Completing this race was nothing short of monumental for me. It was the epitome of my healing.
I began taking my weight seriously about 4 years ago after my doctor told me I was pre-diabetic. As soon as I heard that jolt of reality. I buckled down and put in the hard work to shed the weight. What I find is rarely talked about is the mental journey that coincides with weight loss. Surely, losing weight automatically grants confidence, right? WRONG! At least it was for me.
