The Reconstruction of Me

I'm Monique and I have 60 lbs to lose. I've recently discovered that it looks like I may have osteoarthritis instead of lupus, so it is extremely important that I take my medication and get this excess weight off of my poor bones. I struggle with poor self esteem and I realize that my weight won't come off until I begin to love myself totally without question.

Weight wasn't an issue in my early 20's. I remember weighing 120-125lbs, but then after 8 pregnancies, 7 live births ...
I'm Monique and I have 60 lbs to lose. I've recently discovered that it looks like I may have osteoarthritis instead of lupus, so it is extremely important that I take my medication and get this excess weight off of my poor bones. I struggle with poor self esteem and I realize that my weight won't come off until I begin to love myself totally without question.

Weight wasn't an issue in my early 20's. I remember weighing 120-125lbs, but then after 8 pregnancies, 7 live births and 1 miscarriage, along with dealing with emotional, negative self-worth issues I now weigh 207 lbs. I am sooo unhappy and at times miserable that it's depressing. I can no longer let this go on.

Losing weight and loving myself go hand-in-hand. Until I deal with my mind battles, I will never truly lose weight. It will always be a yo-yo game and for my sake and the sake of my family that can not be the case anymore. Although it will be a long process, with setbacks and victories, I must move forward because I'm worth more than I think I do. God created me and He doesn't make junk so I am awesome. I just have to start believing it.

Just want you to know that my husband passed on Feb 11,2013 from cancer and he is now in the arms of Jesus. I do miss him so but the way things are going in this world it will be soon that I will be with the Lord Jesus and my husband. I am just glad that the Lord reached him before he passed.

The one thing all famous authors, world class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things. Yet still, they began their journeys, Mike Dooley

In the beginning, the price of giving great love is risking that it won't be returned. Until you understand, of course, that great love is always returned. With interest. - Mike Dooley

I do believe that the single most important thing I could ever share with you with regard to maximizing the health, harmony, and happiness in your life can be summed up in just two words: 'Love Yourself' - Mike Dooley

Have a great weekend
