Pretty & fitty! - The Beggining

"A year from now you will wish you had started today"

It's absolute truth. I regret I hadn't changed my life with my sister when she has started - now she reached her goals and I am still where I was. So I decided it's my time to do it. Looking at her is inspiring - if she could make it, so can I!

It's not my first try. Actually I was trying to loose weight even with SparkPeople few times past 3 years. it was doing good for a week, not more than 2 weeks, but then I was giving up. I ended up that I was repeatidly loosing and gaining a little weight, but in the end since the end of high school I gained 10kg (22 lbs) (in 2 years).

The problem with me is than I lack self determination. I have millions of excuses and I surrender to little pleasures. But I have to end this. Now!

Since elementary school I never was happy about how I look. When I look back I see it was mostly in my head, because only now I get up on the edge of overweight. But it's my life and my body and it's up to me to be happy with it. I don't like my body? I have to make changes then, not only cry and dream about beautiful me. Also it's not like I'm ugly. I recently started to buy more cosmetics, got my hairs cut and bought some new clothes. To have a happy life I have to be happy with myself first :) And it's not that people look nice just like that. If I wanna like the way I look, I must work on it, not just sit and wait for miracle.

Actually it's one of my new stategies - I often buy sweets and fast food, so I decided to spend the money I wanted to use for unhealthy food for something fo my looks - cosmetics, hairdresser or new clothes :) It's a pleasant way to stay away from calories :)

    You'll never be more young and beautiful than you are right now! Don't strive for a perfect image, just the best you can be. Do what you need to do, starting now, to be your healthiest and then continue. Make it a way of life and the beauty you already have will beam from within and out. emoticon

    Do whatever you need to do to make yourself "feel" beautiful. I only hope that you will never forget that beauty really is only skin deep. Real and lasting beauty is what's on the inside. Maybe that sounds cliche, but it is the truth. Look around you. Look at your family and friends. See how some very "beautiful people" - on the outside - are really, really ugly because of what they have on the inside? And now look again. See how some people in your life - people you love- maybe aren't so "pretty" on the outside - but absolutely light up the room because of their beauty - on the inside? It works like that for you too. Ok? Just don't forget that. As you go about putting on your make-up, take time to nourish your inner beauty too. It matters most. When you are 70 years old, all the make-up in the world won't make one bit of difference. But your heart? Your soul? It will make all the difference. I wish you the very best on your journey!
