Start of Something Beautiful

Monday, February 11, 2013

I am so excited to start this amazing journey! I wasn't always around 180 lbs. Only four years ago I was an energetic 135 lb young girl who loved playing tennis and living the good life. After starting college, I got into some really nasty habits, drinking a lot of pop and alcohol and never making the time to workout. I lost focus of what I was really going to school for, and I lost who I was. I came back home in 2008, still not really sure of who I was and what I wanted to do with my life. I had a series of really bad and destructive relationships that only added to my weight problem. I didst care what I looked like.
In 2010, I met a really great man who has helped me to get back some of the person I was before. He brought me back to reality and made me realize that I was a person worth loving, and that I was beautiful inside and out. That man is now my husband, and we have been together for 3 years strong. We've had a lot of struggles, a lot of deaths in both of our families and have had some hard times with my husband being laid off from his job. It really added more stress and more weight problems to our plate.
But now, were starting to get back on track, my husband and I are starting to go back to school to earn our degrees. I'm working full time at a extremely busy 24hr Emergency center for animals that I love. Piece by piece things are starting to turn out the way they should. Now I'm ready to get back to the girl I should have been all along. I realize now that I made excuses for myself instead of making results. So now, I'm ready to change all of that. Starting now. :)

    It sounds like you are on the right track, that despite all the craziness life hands you that you're willing to do what you need to do to treat yourself right. Stay strong, and keep on that path. You'll feel success in no time at all!

    One day at a time and you can make the difference you want.
    Focus on all the wonderfulness you have with your husband and this will spill over to other things....including weight loss.

    Keep the faith! emoticon
