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?!

    Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. - Lucille Ball

    Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. - M Scott Peck

    Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one. - Eleanor Roosevelt

    It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others. – Sidney J. Harris
