    I have achieved a lot

    since I left Stavanger. I survived three months alone in Newcastle. I have been steadily raising funds to explore more of Europe and the world as a dancer, and I have been able to explore Great Britain, alone. Last month I went to Paris alone for a week!

    After great results at the gym today.

    After 8 weeks of lifting heavy I've managed to: loose 1/2 a stone, gone from 26% body fat to 23%, from 4 to 3% viscular fat, gone smaller all over except from my thighs (good!) and my metabolic age has gone from 26 years old to 23. And I'm 38 so cannot complain on that one. I...

    I Am...

     I am proud of myself. I thought I wasn't going to be able to get myself out of the hole I had dug for myself. I remember thinking to myself eight months ago after my sister had passed away why should I even get better? It doesn't even sound like anyone does want...

    I almost don't recognise myself.

    I am so proud of my achievements. I am proud to be content, and happy! I have come a long long way and managed to say goodbye to all my fears. It's fantastic to feel this way. I have such light mind! :) IT's progress, and it's everyday learning, and I love it! :)

    There are a few things I'm proud of.

    I've accomplished being the first one to get ready, after years of being the slowest one in the family to do so. Also getting to bed at an early time instead of 3 am every morning. And finally finished reading a good book.

    I am proud to say that I've gone a few months

    now without cutting. I do have scars that I call my "survivor scars" because I've been through hell and back. My advice though? Don't harm yourself. It's not worth it.

    I faced a really big fear of mine.

    It was uncomfortable and terrifying but I did it. I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone by facing my fears. I am tackling some really big ones right now. So I am going to be proud of myself for this and I will remember this feeling.

    Today we had immunisations

    and I had to get two needles (and I have a phobia towards needles). They both stung very badly, but I was the only one who didn't cry, and the only one who went in with a smile on my face and came out with a smile on my face.

    I never meant to hurt anyones feelings.

    I don't feel I should not talk about being proud just because it makes them feel less. It was something I focused on, something I did not want to be and it was very important to me and I accomplished it. I did not become a teen and/or single mother. Many of my friends had teen...
