nicelyproportioned saidI think that many people feel at war with their own bodies. Mine is now my best friend. It does what I want, and it looks the way I want it to look.
I feel more capable. And feeling more capable makes me feel more confident. And feeling more confident makes me feel more at ease.
When you get the big things right, little things don't bother you as much.
Man, I could not have said it better myself. I went from about 35 pounds overweight maybe eight years ago to about 20 pounds underweight about four years ago, and today am weighing in at a pretty lean 165-170. The physical improvements just clear the road for the changes that really make you feel good - the increase in energy, the positive vibes you give off to those around you (they notice it, trust me), the confidence, the clarity of mind, the list goes on!
