Monday, July 8, 2013
Hi! I'm Anne and I'm 18 years old. I woke up this morning and found myself asking "If not now, when?" I've never been skinny. In fact, I've always been that girl who never lost the baby fat...even when it wasn't baby fat anymore, and it was just plain fat. My friends never called me fat or anything, but I felt it. In comparison to them, I was unhealthy, and I hated it. I'd always be covered up when we go swimming, and I hated running in gym because, sure, even if it were exercise, I looked like a dying hippo next to my friends who, despite the sweat, still looked like Abercrombie models. I decided to make a blog of my progress, not only to remind myself daily of why I started to begin with, but to help motivate others in the same boat as I am. It's never too late to start, so why not start now? Let me start with 2 years ago. I was in the track team, and I was actually 20 pounds lighter and had 20 pounds left to my goal weight. My friends and people started noticing and complemented me on it, which, I loved! Instead of using it as a motivation, however, I got complacent and ate what I want when I wanted, thinking "I can't gain 20 pounds in a day" without considering that I would if I kept using that excuse whenever I ate something unhealthy. So here I am again, back to square one, but with new goals. I want to LOSE it and KEEP IT OFF this time. When I said that I woke up this morning with this goal, of course it didn't just come out of nowhere! I feel down and miserable with this extra weight on me. I feel so unwanted and ashamed all the time, and I'm sick of it. I want confidence and happiness just like everyone else out there. I don't like how I feel tired all the time and how I get cranky occasionally. I want a new life and I want to start it now rather than later down the road because every moment I waste is precious time I could have used to better myself, but instead complained about it instead. So here I am, at the starting line of my journey to happiness, health, and confidence. Here's to new bikinis, cute dresses that I feel good wearing, a smaller pant size, better moods, self confidence, and a happier, healthier life!
PS.When you want to eat that brownie, just remember: Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. Don't deprive yourself of food, but eat HEALTHIER. When you eat CRAP, you'll feel like CRAP. Here's to a new day and a new beginning. Here's to the life you always wanted :)
