~*Being Successfully Happy isn't a Destination it's a Journey*~
I'm Angie a 24 year old Wife and Mother. I live in Long Beach, California. I have five animals. Four Cats and a Dog. I never leave anywhere without my blackberry or camera.

I'm Angie a 24 year old Wife and Mother. I live in Long Beach, California. I have five animals. Four Cats and a Dog. I never leave anywhere without my blackberry or camera. When I am alone and in the mood I like to Vlog about certain aspects of my life. I have been overweight pretty much my whole life. The only time I was at a normal weight was when I was four years old. A lot of that resulted with the way I ate and me not being too active. I hate being active but if I don't learn to like it I will never lose this chunk of weight that I want to be gone.
My husband is overweight too and I just want us to be healthy and be able to live a long healthy life together. I have a few best friends that I tell EVERYTHING to, and a bunch of friends that I still love being around me. I really love to meet new people. But me actually carrying a conversation with them on is a laugh. I was never diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder but being social with people is always something I have struggled with. In some areas I do have low self-esteem and in others I don't. I don't want to lose this weight because it will make me prettier or because it will change the way I feel about ME. Because I really do love myself. The way I love my husband is completely dangerous and just plain out scary but I don't care. I really can't see my life without my husband being in it. I love me for ME not because of what I may look like on the outside. And a lot of people overweight really can't say that. From all the research I've done. I can clearly say I am happy with my fat body. But I just want to be healthy. I don't want to have to worry about Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol. Which indeed I have all three. Not to mention they tell me I have PCOS. I want to be able to conceive a baby and for me to be able to tell the DRS I'm not infertile. I mean my Sister had a baby and she was told that too. I will beat the odds. I will lose weight, I will have a baby, I will get out of financial debt, and I will go to College and succeed. And one more thing....
I ANGIE MARIE HEINRICH-GARCIA IS DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!!!!
