Do you ever spend a lot of time wishing you could be different than what you are? Smaller, smarter, funnier, braver? That's been my life for a long time, but no more. I want to defined by the quality of my character not the size of my body.

I always thought that if I could just get the weight off then my life could begin, then I could have, be and do all I've ever wanted. Well that's just not so anymore, it's time for me to live out my best life, putting my best foot forward no matter what my weight.

I will continue to exercise because I love what it does for my emotional well-being, social life, community building and shared fitness goals with others.

I will continue to pursue my goal of learning how to live in my body and respond to its needs with whole, quality food. To not eat from a place of stress, boredom, anxiety, pressure-release and numbing tendencies. The reality for me is I did not get this way by listening and honouring my body, but by exactly the opposite; ignoring my body and treating myself like garbage.

I believe balance, moderation, consistency and persistance will help me reach my goals over all else.

So this journey I am on is my dedication to all women and men who have decided to live their lives based on all the qualities that make us unique and special and have nothing to do with the size of our bodies.
