Another blog of reflection. When I started this year it was all about growth. I wanted to grow mentally and physically. This year I experienced many ups and many downs. But most importantly I kept going. Below I put together a little slideshow with a little poem I wrote as the background music. Hope You Enjoy It! Leave comments below & Follow this blog for more.

Growth: I went from being denied surgery time and time again For 3 years I was told no The door to my future stayed closed Until I forced it open Then I laid up on that surgical table I went from looking down upon myself to holding my head high Even my pictures are different. I use to look sad in every picture because I liked to wear my heart on my sleeves. Now because of gastric sleeve I smile when ever I get the chance. I went from complaining about being too big to fit in nice pants To saying the pants I wear now is way too big I went from looking in the mirror and feeling so sick of the man it reflected To loving every aspect of that man That man is me For a long time I told myself what I couldn’t do Instead of just doing it like Nike I chose to fight it Fight the idea that I could conquer my problems Until I got tired of it I got tired of eating deserts just for a sweet taste I got tired of cleaning big plates Then seeing my weight get higher and higher No I chose to become a fighter I fought and fought until my weight was the only one that took a loss I use to look at the numbers on my scale blink 470 now they blink 296 This year was about growth I now can look in the mirror and say I have grown I have shown myself and anyone who have doubt it That I can overcome any challenge in my way 2019 was a great year I can only hope no I can only do better in 2020
