Welcome to the world of Aesthetica. I'm the next Spark Success Story.

I'm here because of a photo. I'm not like some people - I haven't always been moping about how fat and awful I am. On the contrary, I've been asking the world why can't everyone see how awesome I am? I'm so tired of overweight and obese people going through life being ignored. And I have been. I'm in a graduate program and I also have a full-time job.

Welcome to the world of Aesthetica. I'm the next Spark Success Story.

I'm here because of a photo. I'm not like some people - I haven't always been moping about how fat and awful I am. On the contrary, I've been asking the world why can't everyone see how awesome I am? I'm so tired of overweight and obese people going through life being ignored. And I have been. I'm in a graduate program and I also have a full-time job. As someone who has done both of those things at a "normal" weight and now as an obese person, I can say that the tides have turned. The more frustrated I got, the more it really started to affect my personality. "But I'm not THAT fat!" I kept insisting.

Then came the picture.

My husband took a picture of me sitting at my computer. I didn't know he was taking it... when I saw it, my world stopped. You know, the AH-HA moment everyone talks about? This was mine. The fat underneath my arm was literally pushed out and over the arm hole sleeve and my actual arm was just hanging there, all lumpy and the size of some skinny girl's thigh. My stomach, my legs, everything seemed to be pouring out of the chair I was stuffed into.

"Alright, world," I conceded. "Maybe I could use a little work."

Being obese, I've wondered sometimes how much better of a person I could be if I wasn't obese. And not better on the inside, or something, I mean just plain better. Maybe I could get out of bed without my knees hurting. Maybe I could walk farther without huffing or puffing. My job requires me to be on my feet for 8-10 hours. I do it energetically. But I always wonder how much better I could be.

I'm tired of wondering.

I'm here, and for now, I'm going to be anonymous. I want to be able to get on here and pour my heart out if I need to. My overall goal is to lose 100 pounds.
