First things first.
I’ve lost a lot of weight in the past year, and the funny thing is I eat more than ever. The big difference being it’s a requirement for my job to work out every single day of the week. and I don’t mean a gym ( I haven’t been to a gym since high school) working at a trapeze rig is a workout, without even counting my own practice/performance time.
I worked a trapeze rig before starting with club med, and I flew before starting with club med. But that was a few hours a day.
Now my entire life revolves around circus and as a result I am in the best shape of my life.
no get thin quick scheme.
just a passion for, and commitment to, circus.
and I feel so amazing about myself, like I never have before. And it’s not just because I’m skinnier, that didn’t just magically make all my problems go away. it’s because my goal wasn’t to lose weight, of course I’d hoped I would shape up better, but my goal was to learn circus. my goal was to do my best and be proud of my work and my routines, and to do things I never thought I could.
and now i can and it’s because I literally worked my ass off for it, and I feel strong. I feel like I can overcome anything put before me now.
It’s amazing how far a little self confidence goes.
