"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!!!
