I am so sick with myself right now.
I know that probably is not a very uplifting way to begin this journey, but I believe brutal honesty is crucial to moving forward. And for me, moving forward is essential to my happiness, my health, and my well-being.
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Alice. I am an eighteen year old living in Michigan, and I am still in high school. For me, weight has always been an issue. I am 5 ft 10 and 160 lbs. As summer approaches my nerves are growing with intensity and I am in desperate need of finding a way to lose some weight.
When my friends ask me to go to the beach or attend a pool party I don't want to be freaking out about how I don't look good in a bathing suit, and I most definitely will be the biggest girl there. I'm a teenager. I shouldn't be worried about this stuff--but I am!
So to combat this, Im going to do my absolute best to lose weight and become all that I want to become. I CAN do it! I know I can. But sometimes I lose motivation and need someone or something to push me forward.
This is only day one on my journey..I have many days ahead, many temptations to beat, and many milestones to hit. But I know, that with the help of God, I will get there.
Thanks for listening!
