Over the years, I have let my health and my appearance take a back seat to many circumstances of my life. For some for you who knew me in high school, I was the girl who spent two hours every morning on her hair and make-up! If I thought I didn't look nice, I would cry and beg my mom to let me stay home! Over the years, I began to think less and less of what people thought of my appearance. I have been a busy single parent trying to hold down a job, and be a part of my children's school functions and activities, even after school activities like tutoring, and dance classes. Some times it seems like I can barely keep it together, but God always helps me through my busy days!!!! Needless to day, most days I hurriedly climb out of bed, and rush to get my daughter to school then to work. Please do not think I am complaining, as I love every second of my life. However, taking care of myself has been the lowest priority on my list for too long. Over the past ten years, I have put on 30 pounds, and would love to get the weight off. Not only for appearances sake, but to regain my energy, reduce my high blood pressure, and feel feel confident about myself. Over the years, I have made a lot of bad choices with who I chose to have romantic relationships with. In September of 2009, I was baptized, and God has shown me that no man can make me feel good about myself. That experience must come from God and myself. So for now, I am taking a break from men, and spending my time focusing on my health, and my children. I want to be the best mom I can be, and taking care of myself will help greatly in achieving that goal. Thank you all for reading, and if I can be of support or assistance to anyone, please do not hesitate to leave a message, and I will respond to you very soon. Have a great day!!!!!
