I told myself I wouldn't talk about weight until half way through the month, but I already broke that rule and weight has been all I can think about today. So, I am following what my mind wants me to write. I openly talk about my weight loss to anyone that will listen--it was (and still is) hard, and I am EXTREMELY proud that I accomplished what I did. Therefore, if you are already rolling your eyes then 1. Fuck you and 2. Stop reading now.
Nine years ago I backpacked through Europe and had the time of my life. Nine years ago, I was very happy, or so I thought. Nine years ago, I weighed way more than I do now.

Becca at size 10 thought it was ok to wear a crop top...bitch be CRAY!

There is a difference of 20lbs and two dress sizes in these photos. The last one was taken tonight. I haven't indulged in alcohol in 12 days. I don't need it. I haven't gone crazy. And I am way happier because I feel like a functioning human for the first time in a very long time. I am not sure if it is sobriety, that I am writing more, that I am running more, that I am open to my feelings, or all of the above. (HINT BECCA- it is all of the above--a great combination!). After this month, I will most likely drink again, but I know now that I can do so and still take care of myself.
