It's up to me...

I grew up on Hamburger Helper & Value Meals. I ate chips in my room and drank pop 95% of the time because "I didn't like the taste of water" (the other 5% was milk, tea, or anything but water). I "didn't like vegetables" and my plate rarely contained fruits or vegetables. I didn't play sports and outside of school (I participated in the Fine Arts), I was mostly a couch potato.

I grew up on Hamburger Helper & Value Meals. I ate chips in my room and drank pop 95% of the time because "I didn't like the taste of water" (the other 5% was milk, tea, or anything but water). I "didn't like vegetables" and my plate rarely contained fruits or vegetables. I didn't play sports and outside of school (I participated in the Fine Arts), I was mostly a couch potato. I could rock a bikini and never had concerns over my body until about my Junior/Senior year of high school when I started gaining a few pounds.

Fast forward a few years and a traumatic time trying to fit into a swimsuit, I finally had to learn (for the first time REALLY learn) about health and fitness since I obviously couldn't keep living the way I lived when I was younger.

I've done great with losing a significant amount of weight twice before, but have gained it all back (and then some). My greatest fear is my health (I have high cholesterol) and I'm tired of going up sizes and not fitting into my clothes. I'm tired of looking in the mirror with sadness, tired of avoiding cameras, and tired of being to self-conscience to enjoy activities like swimming or a night out on the town.

My motto is, "If you don't like something, do something about it!" You always have a choice. My choice is to make the change NOW.

Oh no! Did he leave? :( He is by far my favorite in person. He is such a cool dude! haha I met Jon over the summer and let me tell you, he is such a sweetheart! When you are one on one with him, you'd never think he was the shy one. Jordan is very reserved (as if you couldn't tell). He has his moments were he can be crazy but more often than not, he really does stick to himself.

Did you get to go to any of the shows this last tour?

I really like your suggestion to incorporate my dogs. Lately I have been afraid to go on our walks because I live close to a Forrest preserve and I have had 2 run ins with coyotes. Hopefully when it gets a little warmer out. I hope you are having a great day and staying positive as always! emoticon

Thanks for adding me as a friend! Hope to see you in the "spa"! Have an awesome day! PS I could so relate to your story. I could eat whatever I wanted when I was younger too, but it eventually caught up to me. Funny thing, my friends who struggled with their weight in high school are now relatively thin and healthy looking and I who was thin am now obese. Well, not for long!!! You ARE beautiful! Have a great day! emoticon
