Then and Now

I was talking with a friend recently about how I have changed in this last year, mentally it’s pretty obvious, well to me at least, I have more confidence, am more socially active, am more independent and haven’t had any panic attacks in a long time. The thing that surprised me was the physical changes, I hadn’t quite realised how big they were, I’ve put on weight, have a proper suntan and am generally much healthier, apparently these changes are quite obvious in photographs, which was unexpected.

The photographs above were taken about a year ago when I was in the local paper, the ones below are recent, hopefully you can see a difference and I’m not just deluding myself.

Whether or not there is an obvious difference I am much more healthy from changing my diet and attitudes, I’ve even been happy at times!

  • I can only agree with your friend (um it was me but hey) there’s clearly a huge difference, you look so much stronger and healthier. Your skin looks amazing and there’s a new confidence there that was missing before.

    Really proud of how you have faced your issues, and addressed them, and I know at times its been a very challenging and difficult year but you have really proven how resourceful and strong you are.
