I am a 28 year old young lady who is done with having a low self esteem! Could my body be in better shape? SURE! Is that a reason to beat myself up? NO! For too long Ive been kicking myself around for being overweight. Its been an on going issue since the third grade. Ive done all the diets I can think of of taken a bunch of diet pills and the end result I'm still overweight. Its time to start loving myself for the person I am right now in this moment extra weight and all. Because the truth is my body does so much for me! I picked up a 10 lb bag of potatoes the other day and thought geez this is heavy. Then realized my poor body has to carry around these extra 98 plus pounds! So thank you lovely body for all the daily functions you perform even though I haven't taken the best care of you. I love myself and therefore I will only think positive of myself! Im sure that loving myself in the present will only help my future weight loss. I have been so blessed in my life to be able to finish college, have wonderful family and friends and more recently I am engaged and have found the man God meant for me to be with! Life is good!!!!
To lose weight for the right reasons. To be healthy and live a long happy life.
Also for my special wedding day!
Dealing with issues that lead to my weight gain. "Get your mind right and your body will follow." Nick Vuijicic said your greatest disability is in your mind not your body." This is so true and if I don't fix the 'thinking' and issues that caused my weight gain I will just continue this cycle.Eating plenty of fruits and veggies. Drinking recommend amount of water no soda! Limiting processed food as much as possible. Working out minimum 3 days a week. (Cardio /weight lifting)
Putting God first all things are possible!
I have over come many obstacles in my life. The one that remains is overcoming my MIND! so I can lose weight and be healthy.
I am a proud Christian and God is where I draw my strength from! He is my rock! Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

My main realm in WOW is Sentinels US, but I have characters spread across 12 or so realms. I don't play nearly as much as I used to. I'm not as stressed and hiding from the world in the game ... and I never did get comfortable with how they changed Holy Priests and healing in general. I used to love healing and it turned into work instead of fast thinking for me.
I know right, if only I had the camera!! I'm glad you are getting more into your routine, I'll have to look at those videos, I still need to look at the inspirational one from yesterday too (been slacking on that aspect). But I'm gald you got the workouts in and you're feeling better! It's amazing how much exercise helps. And thank you for the suggestion, I will try that as well ;)
