August 18th, 2019 Eighteen Years Later
Yesterday used to be a Four-star day: I maintained the integrity of my calorie price range, I remained delicate sugar-free, I exceeded my day by day water objective, and I stayed neatly attached with outstanding reinforce.
After critical climate protection past due final evening, after an exceptionally lengthy day–it used to be a super-short evening of leisure. The alarm sounded at five:50am. My early-morning broadcast from the Farmers Market required me to stand up and be in a position! Being in a position for me manner ensuring I’ve sufficient time to correctly entire my morning foundational regimen and naturally, time to get correctly caffeinated!!
By the time the printed began, I used to be feeling sharp and on level regardless of attending to sleep about 2:30am. I used to be interested by the printed and excited as a result of a long-time good friend of mine and present member of my personal reinforce workforce used to be making the travel to Ponca City for a seek advice from! Susan Astramskas is touring her very personal transformation highway. In the final 12 months, she’s launched 111 kilos and counting. She’s given me permission to percentage her identify and images on this submit. You can apply her on Instagram each and every step of the best way, too, at: @susan040864
Susan first got here to grasp me for my stand-up comedy. I used to be simply every other comic at every other display her and her buddies had been playing. Something about my standup resonated along with her and he or she made a number of displays all the way through that duration of my lifestyles. Who would have ever idea that eighteen years later, we might be right here?

I am so excited for Susan! She’s operating her day by day follow and producing numerous enthusiasm for the place she’s headed. It is an honor to witness and be part of her improbable tale and transformation! When she speaks of her “why” and the sure visualizations for her long run, it is tough not to get emotional. Freedom, in such a lot of tactics…it is tough. She’s doing the paintings, every emblem new day. Thank you, Susan!!
Usually, my morning begins with two cups water, then I get started the espresso brewing, then I focal point on my morning foundational regimen. Today used to be other. Some heavy however no longer critical storms had been transferring thru, so I did some “non-severe” on-air breaks first-thing. I am certain I gave the impression of I’d simply were given off the bed…as a result of, neatly, I’d simply jumped off the bed! I used to be ready to get that duty treated and “restart” my morning. I am just right now.
I plan on performing some much-needed rental cleansing nowadays, I’ve a decision with the internet clothier for my new web page (coming VERY quickly), and I plan to get into the RecPlex this afternoon for a just right exercise sooner than having dinner out this night time with mother. It’ll be a just right Sunday!
“What about simply loving and accepting ourselves no matter our weight or size? I read a lot of fat-acceptance blogs and they make sense to me. Then I come here and I don’t know what to think. Some of your writing gets into my head.”–Kimber in Boston
Kimber, first, thanks for studying my weblog and thanks for being the primary particular person to invite a query by means of textual content to the DDWL and Transformation Planet Hotline! Great query! I latterly began including a small piece about this on the finish of every weblog posting. In reaction in your query, I will increase on it just a little and put it up right here for this version.
“I’m just going to love and accept myself at 500 pounds.” –Me, circa early to mid-2000s. In hindsight, I see how I used that commentary to unencumber any and all private duty for sure exchange. It used to be a lot more straightforward that approach. The gravitational pull towards the line of least resistance turned into justified in what gave the look of a wholesome standpoint. It wasn’t a natural standpoint and declaration. It used to be an out for me to proceed my self-destructive meals behaviors, however with relatively much less guilt and self-loathing, safe by means of this “cape” of “acceptance.”
Look, I am all about self-love and acceptance, it is crucial, all the time…so long as it does not change into a handy excuse/explanation for state of being inactive. I “loved” myself for years, and I embraced morbid weight problems and the behaviors that stored me in a spot of acceptance at 500 kilos—a spot decided to in the end kill me.
One of the best expressions of self-love is exploring and accepting the ability we cling, to select exchange—as soon as and for all, like by no means sooner than. It is not a rejection of our present self, it is self-love, self-care, and self-acceptance for the place we’re and what we are doing. When we are opting for exchange, it provides us a possibility to follow self-love and self-acceptance for quite a lot of new, every so often thrilling, every so often difficult and essential issues alongside this highway. Believe me, beneath those garments, the scars; the bodily aftermath of dwelling at 500 kilos for just about 20 years supply me a number of essential alternatives to follow self-love and self-acceptance.
I’m hoping that is helping explain my place in this subject! Thank you, once more, Kimber!
