Since I have been trying to lose weight, I have realized the following:
1. It's hard for me to stick with things
2. I make excuses for everything
3. I justify behaviors that I shouldn't even do
I have been at it for four months now. I have gained so much more than a smaller waist. And the benefits keep on getting better. It takes a lot of time and dedication but I am determined to change my life.
One step at a time.
I've learned about substitutions, streaks, accountability and the importance of exercise.
I am human though, I still over eat (especially on the weekends). I still drink (which I have decided to massively cut back - if not quit). I still have massive cravings during PMS, but what counts is how I over come them.
Through my trial and error, I have come to realize that I want to help people. I want to be there, I want to spread the encouragement.
It's time for dedication, streaks, knowledge and determination. With this I know that everything is possible.
I grew up over weight, and now I'm DONE.
I'm DONE being the fat girl.
I'm DONE not knowing what to wear everyday.
I'm DONE being made fun of for not being 100 pounds.
I'm DONE caring what people think about me.
I'm DONE eating my feelings.
I'm done being criticized and belittled just because the way I look. I'm here to lose the weight for good. I deserve to be happy, and gosh darn it! It's gonna happen whether I like it or not!!
I haven't lost that much weight, but I am on the road to progress. It's time for a change in my lifestyle because I want to be happy and proud of myself.
Losing the weight would mean the world to me. When I accomplish this, I know I will be able to accomplish anything in the world.
So far, I have learned that discipline is my best friend. Everyone slacks off sometimes, but it isn't something to dwell about. You just need to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and slowly get back into the pace then keep going. Everyone needs a break sometimes!!

Hey Whitney! I am still trying to figure out how this website and app work, so you might have to bare with me! I was wondering if you'd want to be accountability buddies though?
