Thailand Nov 2014 - Feeling very uncomfortable in my own skin
This needs to change, very uncomfortable at this weight and I hate pics right now (10/14)
I felt huge here, realized this is what I look like and how everyone else sees me.

I am quickly learning that is becoming a motto for me in 2016!
I am DONE doing things I've done before and expecting different results. It's time to change things up! And...I am making great progress!
I have made an ample amount of changes in my life over the past few months, the past few weeks and by golly, the last few days! I am finishing up two health coaching certifications right now and will be starting my own business. My focus will be on the before and after of childhood dieting.
Initially, I want to working with parents to teach them healthy eating so their kids do not have to be put on diets or restrictive plan. I know from personal experience, it doesn't work. Also, kids tend to follow what their parents do, not what they say. How many of us had a mom or dad that was overweight or always dieting? I'm sure the percentage is fairly high.
I am going to learn and grow from this experience! I am going to help others because I have been in these shoes. I will not feel helpless or frustrated anymore. I am so glad I found a program that is finally working for me and follows sound nutritional guidelines. And, I have such great support and friends here on SP, what more could I ask for?!
1) To learn and implement consistent healthy eating in my life
2) To change my self-talk to be positive and get back to a healthy self-esteem
3) To help others make positive changes in their life, increasing their health and well-being
4) To help parents understand the value of setting an example of healthy eating
5) To make a difference in the lives of heavy children and set them up for success so they never have to be put on a restrictive eating plan or diet because of their weight

CHOICES CHOICES CHOICES
Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.
Have no regrets in life because of the choices you make. Good or bad, they are a learning experience, to help you grow. The only regret in life, is to never make a choice at all.

I can't change it now, and besides, I like who those years made me into.

Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.â€• Roy T. Bennett
It is so simple: the choices we make in our everyday lives, the things we do or not, define the world we live in.
