I Am Proud of Myself

    Today I pushed my fears behind me

    and stepped out of my shell. I took a chance and did not think about the risks as much and it was good. Now I will push myself to do this more often! Yay!

    Hmmm

    I am proud of myself for being an animal-loving, Earth-loving, Universe-loving, miracle-believing, gay-marriage supporting, non-racist pacifist that sees what others don't seem to :) I just wish they would see it too :(

    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...

    At the beginning of the year I declared

    that I would learn to love myself more and prove to those that hurt me that I'm not broken. I'm stronger. I have been exercising, trying my best to eat right and learn everyday that there is something to be thankful for. I realized my clothes fit much more looser, I have more...

    Well Kinda....

      I am kinda proud of myself. Just having someone comment on a story that I had written on, I realized that I am going on almost four months without cutting. I think that is a great accomplishment, at least for me. I was cutting almost everyday for a long time, and had...

    Nearly 25 Hours Down And I'm So Proud!!

    I've now gone nearly 25 hours and I haven't eaten anything at all! Well, my mom forced me to eat a piece of salmon, but I ate the smallest piece I could get away with. It was only half the size of my thumb, so it probably had 10 calories in it at most. Besides that, I haven't...

    I was so cruel to myself.

    Before...i let them paint those heavy weights on my confidence. Worse, i painted the world on my worth, slowly crushing any hope i had left. They kept telling me that my accomplishments were not worth a story. I would cry because they did not know my struggle. Through winter...

    One of my friends stumbled across my EP account

    Well, my Cory left this morning and I didn't get to see him off. But at least this time there was a reason for it. I was up late last night studying for the ASVAB that I am taking at 2pm or so today. I have made a very big decision to join the Navy. I got a 35 on the practice...

    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...

    I went out and tried to meet someone and got interest from them. After years of being shy and not doing anything, I am glad I went out and actually did it.

    I Found Ep Myself To Explore.

    I am proud of myself. I found EP for myself. Here is a sight where I can explore myself and relate. Learn from others and be inspired by theirs. A place where I can be open to myself, while being polite to each other. I am proud of myself I found EP.

    Taking Hold of My Emotions

    Just finished registration at school.

    As soon as I got in my car and took a look at my school ID I was full with so many emotions. I stopped myself from crying. Tears of joy desperately waiting to drift out of me. I am proud of myself. Another stepping stone. Everyday I feel more complete. I am a work in progress!
