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?!
