You only fail if you don't get back up after you fall...

I grew up as an overweight child in an overweight family but didn't really think much about it until high school. Food was my emotional crutch throughout childhood and adolescence, during which I suffered from depression. After my brother died of complications due to his obesity at the age of 26, I had a real wake up call concerning my weight as I was only 15 but weighed almost 270 pounds. I've been working on and off on losing weight since then and so far I've lost over 85 pounds. So I'm happy ...

So I'm happy with how far I've come but I still have a few more more pounds to lose and I want to lose them by the end of this year. The hardest part will be maintenance but I'm ready for a new me!! And hopefully getting in shape will also motivate my parents to change their habits and get healthy too.

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours... If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
- Henry David Thoreau

Colossians 3:23
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.

Praise the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me.

Remember to love yourself each day and you'll be happy no matter what.

DONE with low self-esteem.
DONE with crying in dressing rooms.
DONE with putting everything in my mouth.
DONE with being the fat girl.

As of March 2012, I've lost over 100 pounds!!! :)
