I've struggled with my weight for years. I've fluctuated up and down, up and down. I've played sports in elementary and junior high and then in high school and college, I abandoned all of that to focus on my academics.
I've always been the chunky one, or the overweight one. I've always been the smart one, but never the "pretty one." I was talking to my husband about this concept... how weight distorts how people view you. How weight seems to be a roadblock for beauty. It truly is disheartening that so many view heavyset people as not as beautiful as those that aren't.
I have lost 55 lbs, and still have 50 to go. I have been plateaued for awhile since I've had a lot of stress to deal with and haven't been keeping my diet to what it should be. I know what to do, but I don't always do it.
What are some of the things you tell yourself to keep consistent?
