I BELIEVE that FAT is NOT an option!!!

"If being FAT is a multiple-choice question, I choose to skip that question and use my bonus answer of FAT is NOT an option" (iasade)

Imagine having the body that is perfect for you and makes you extremely happy! Do you see it? Its so perfect! Now imagine that there is a huge gap between you and that perfect body that you need to fill, that will get you closer to that body you want. Hence, a dilemma that so many of us face each and every day as we strive to get the bodies we want or to reach goals we have set for ourselves.

I am on a journey to be healthier, happier and more in tune with myself and what I can offer me and others. I am tired of feeling fat, unappreciated, unloved, unwanted and having to constantly buy larger sizes!! That's IT!!!!

How can I effectively strive to be a role model for others when I can't even strive to commit to an exercise regimen to improve my health? Well, I stopped asking that question in May of 2008 and took action. I am NOW on a mission and no one can stop me from closing the health gap that has been open so long in my life.

I had to tell myself this:

* I will no longer make excuses for my weight

* I will no longer say that I am too old to enhance my body image

* I will no longer say that people don't understand how hard it is, because I am in a community of people that truly know what its like on the road to a healthier you

* I will no longer buy larger sizes that I don't really need, because I keep making excuses for not losing weight to get into smaller sizes

*I will no longer say "I wish I could wear this or that" because I can if I just take the necessary steps to fit into it

So that is it! I am on this mission now and the gap is closing more and more, getting me closer to that "perfect image" of me that is on the other end waiting to celebrate! I am doing it and so can you!

TAKE CHARGE and lets do it together!!!

****************************************
I wrote this poem for you to say to yourself when you need a little encouragement along your journey!! As a matter of fact, if you know someone that need a little pick-me-up, recite the poem to them and just add the word "you." It is so simple and can make such a difference in the lives of those you interact with!!!!

***I BELIEVE***
I BELIEVE I am worth it!
I BELIEVE I can do it!
I BELIEVE I am progressing!
I BELIEVE in my dreams!
I BELIEVE in my goals!
I BELIEVE that people care!
I BELIEVE that life matters!
I BELIEVE in change!
I BELIEVE I can make a difference!
I BELIEVE in ME!!!
