My name is Brandi and I live in beautiful Northwest Arkansas. I am a sixth grade literacy and social studies teacher.

I've been self-conscious of my body since puberty. Since I was an early bloomer, I gained my womanly curves much sooner than my friends and, instead of embracing them, I hid them under baggy clothes. I always thought the worst of myself, and my self-esteem was practically non-existent. As a result, I was an easy target for a predator and endured an emotionally, mentally, and sexually abusive relationship for almost five years. He always told me that I was lucky to have him, because he was the best I would ever get. It took a long time to realize that if he was the best I could get then I was better off alone. Leaving him was my first step to valuing myself, and every day since I've learned to love myself a little more.

I joined this site in 2008 because I wanted to lose weight, and I succeeded, but along the way I realized that making the right choices about what to put into my body and giving it the exercise it needs and deserves is more about valuing myself (inside and out) rather than trying to fit into a mold of "sexy" or "beautiful" or "thin." Like many people, I joined this site for a superficial reason, but discovered something far more priceless than a tiny waist--my own self worth.

Hi, hope you are feeling better today. I know a weather front is coming through here right now and my joints are screaming for relief. Tomorrow is supposed to be better so I am wishing for tomorrow to get here. Remember all we have to do is get through 24 hours and then the page turns.
