The main thing is to just be proud of yourself. You started doing this quite late on in the day, as many get into it into their teens and early twenties, maybe even before they're 10.
The one thing is to never doubt yourself and never think you have reached a peak standard. If you have you have, but you have not been doing this long enough to settle for a what is will always be scenario, because I believe you can progress and continue to move onwards with this.
The Leg scenario showed you are human of course, but also that you in fighting terms, could have been seen by some as showing weakness and this might be an indication, that your mental and / or emotional strength, may need to step up another notch, to build more confidence.
Though this is an honest observation, I'm not tearing a strip off you for your actions, as I'm sure the Leg hurt very badly
I'm proud of seeing someone like you make this change in your life. You were just someone, but now you're a trophy winner and you've fought in a world championships. You're a good Athlete Patty, so don't ever be too hard on yourself okay, because you've become a very good rolemodel and an inspiration to others.
You'll progress, there's no doubt about that, but certainly there may be a little room to rethink your mental approach, regards how you think about certain aspects of a fight, or how you approach the start of a fight, because the opponent is beatable, so if there's ever a moment where you start to let differences, experience etc, dictate how you view opponents, then don't let it affect the mindset, because the barriers you create are a valuable asset and strength.
Easy for me to say, as I'm not a part of that world you're in, but I can rationalise things enough to find clarity in the circumstances.
You've done a great job all in all though, so learn from this experience but don't ever stop being proud of these moments or yourself. You've come a long way misses and you have never stopped showing some very commendable heart, courage and inner strength and this is a person that could have called themselves a bit dumpy and maybe frumpy as well, who needed to make some physical change and has repreogrammed themselves and found a way to grow and blossom more as a person, when they could have considered that to be something that was no longer possible or very hard to do.
I'm very proud of you and I've been really happy to see you progress and choose a rewarding addition to your new way of life and I want you to progress and keep making more of yourself.
I would suggest the following if it helps.
Get a piece of paper and write in large coloured letters a few phrases and words that typify you as person, so for example.I AM A WINNER
i AM A FIGHTER
I AM AN ATHLETE
I AM CAPABLE
I WILL SUCCEED
Just use 4 or 5 short phrases that you feel describe you best as a person, then you can have one or two printouts where they will be most effective, so places like the fridge door, or a bedside table, where you can see it first thing in the morning and last thing at night, or maybe just on a work desk, or possibly recreated on a works computer in something like Paintbrush and used as a desktop background.
Keep the mental focus on the fighting in the background but ever present as much as possible, so whatever you're doing and whatever you're thinking, it switches off as little as possible.
That's one reason why I come on places like this, so I can try to keep my head in the zone and not totally switch off between workouts, because I believe this will hopefully help to stop me from becoming someone, who lapses or has a sloppy attitude to my training.
Maybe the approach highlighted will be something to consider, but whatever happens, GOOD LUCK and don't ever stop believing in yourself. You ARE a new person now, with more added value and you're also a really great character and I'm proud to share this site with you, so chin up, keep pushing and no regrets or worries now okay
