Thailand Nov 2014 - ~233lbs, Feeling very uncomfortable in my own skin





This needs to change, very uncomfortable at this weight and I hate pics right now (10/14 @~234)





I felt huge here, realized this is what I look like and how everyone else sees me. (11/6/11 @220)

A New Me!

The last two years have been extremely difficult for me. Although there were many challenges, disappointments and sadness...there was the realization that I am stronger than I know.

I can do this...it's a matter of how bad do I want it and what am I willing to do? Right now, whatever it takes!

I am DONE.

I am DONE being the fat girl, friend, sister, daughter, date.
I am DONE neglecting myself.
I am DONE with excuses.
I am DONE ...

I am DONE.

I am DONE being the fat girl, friend, sister, daughter, date.
I am DONE neglecting myself.
I am DONE with excuses.
I am DONE choosing food over life.
I am DONE blaming my health.
I am DONE doubting myself.
I am DONE comparing myself to others.
I am DONE NOT doing things because of my weight.
I am DONE judging myself because of my weight.
I am DONE not loving myself because of my weight.
I am DONE allowing others to treat me poorly.
I am DONE not believing in myself because I CAN do this!

And...

I am DONE getting in my own way and self-sabotaging!!!

This is my journey, bumps and all. I am choosing to create the life I have always dreamed of and feel happy, healthy and strong!

I will finally learn how to get rid of this weight once and for all!

As of May 27, 2015 - I have decided to take on a 100 Day Challenge. I will refrain from sugar, sweetener, red meat and junk. I will also aim for 30 minutes of activity or 10,000 steps each day!

emoticon Shelle! Think of healthy living as a career. Make goal setting a regular part of your life. Become a permanent participant in sustaining better lifestyle choices. Focus on one goal at a time to become a healthier you. Develop an action plan for each goal and finish what you start. Each positive change will lead you to better results. You CAN and WILL turn your GOALS into the results that you are striving for! DONE GIRL'S ROCK!!

emoticon A = Add variety to nutrition plan, fitness activities and inner well-being goals!
