Today I’ve decided to post something a little different. I hope you guys don’t mind.
If you aren’t familiar with some of the content I post on my personal blog, I sometimes like to write poems that reflect the things I’m going through. Although writing is typically my preferred method of communication, there are times when it becomes quite difficult to articulate my thoughts and feelings outside of some form of poetry.
Perhaps this is weird. Perhaps I’m weird.
Anyhow, today is one of those days because I’m not feeling particularly cheerful or optimistic about my weight loss journey.
As I’ve mentioned before, it is expected that there will be good days and bad days. For the most part, I’ve been really lucky to have had as many good days as I have.
Unfortunately, this isn’t one of them.
All the same, I refuse to allow discouragement to stop me from posting or sharing my true feelings because it wouldn’t be realistic. I really don’t want to be a weight loss blogger who hides their struggles and acts as though I’m not upset or struggling when I very well am.
Many people struggle.
Many people have a hard time when they are trying to lose weight— it is okay to have a difficult time.
But to claim I’m going to document all of the highs and lows of this journey, only to edit out everything I don’t like is not okay.
This is real.
This is my life right now.
These are my feelings.
I don’t have to like any it, but I do have to be honest. And so I shall be.
Wish that I could walk with my head high
Tell my size and not lie
Have reflections match me on the inside
Wish that I could be just how I used to
Nothing I could not do
Say I’m happy and it’d always be true
Wish the things I do would finally work right
No more tears at midnight
Close my eyes and pray my future glows bright
Wish that I could be like all the others
Peak out from these covers
See the world and soak up all its colors
Wish this wasn’t everything I breathe for
Life is now a rote chore
Finally love myself, but never hurt more
Hope the pieces one day fit together
Nothing lasts forever
Ride the storm, keep dreaming I’m a feather
