Me and My hero, my Mom!!!
Hey everyone! I am Meg, I am 21 and I live right outside of Orlando, Florida
"I belive in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at lesiure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe in kissing. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." -Audrey Hepburn
I was a skinny child, and then 5th grade, and my metoblism just haulted. So I guess you could say I've been "heavy" most of my life. And then add the stress of moving from Florida, to Georgia, to New Mexico back to Georgia, all within a 4 year period, lets just say, it wasn't fun, and it reeked havoc on my emotions.
Then I went through the typical high school drama along with always been called names and being made fun of, I always turnt to food for comfort, even when I was happy. Food was always there.
In 2003 I lost some weight and got to 157, a size 9 and a medium shirt. And I was happy, I was ALWAYS on the go and always active, my metoblism was really high, I ate all the time, I was constantly hungry, and the more I ate, the more came off, which, I Know is odd.
And then I started to work. and the weight came back plus some thanks to my eating habits I gained while my metoblism was high, Then you add in a bout of depression and no self-worth, and even more drama, and thats where I am today!
I've gone through alot, and no matter if I was sad, happy, or angry, I would always turn to food. Food was a constant in my life, everywhere I turnt, there was always some kind of food.
In 2003, I got down to 157pds, a size 9. Then within a year, I was 250 pounds, and a size 20. Not only am I DONE Being the Fat Girl, I am DONE turning to food to fill the emptiness I feel in alot of my life.
Through-out the years I have done several "fad" diets with my mom, but none of them last, they were to constricting for me. A girl who LOVES to cook and bake and expermint with different foods. And So I often feel off within a couple of days.
But Now, I am DONE with those fad diets, and am putting myself first, before anyone, and taking care of myself. I am changing how I look at and cook food.
Its a lifestyle change. And So far, even though it is a challenge at times, I love every minute of it. And I love learning new things about myself and everything else.
Motivation and Determination sometimes dwindle, thus I am always looking for ways to motivate myself, and to stay on track. With that said, I am always open for ideas, and words of wisdom. All are welcome and appreciated.
I am DONE!!!

I came across this quote and loved it so much I thought I would share! WHY? B/c I know we have both MAD SKILLS and MAD WILL!!!!
"Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: A desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill."
Have an awesome week!
