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.

Some New Year Quotes for you:

‘An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in.
A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves’ – Bill Vaughn

‘Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on,
with all the wisdom that experience can instil in u.’ – Hal Borland

‘Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right’ – Oprah Winfrey

‘The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.’ – Michael Altshuler

‘We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.’ – Edith Lovejoy Pierce.

‘This is the new year the new you. You can pass through another year, coasting on cruise control.
Or you can step out of your comfort zone, trying things you have never done before, & make 2013
as the year that you elevate from where you are & soar high. Make it happen.’ – Pablo
