First of Many

Well here I am, after months of being on the site and this is my first blog entry. I don't know why it has taken so long, but better late then never.
I am loving SP so far and I have found that it is really helping to keep me motivated, as well as the amazing people on here. This whole thing really and truly is a life change, they are not kidding when they say that. After being the "fat kid" my entire life I am ready to finally be the skinny woman I always knew was inside. I am so sick of being the one who can't go to the beach with her friends because she doesn't want them to see her in a bathing suit, I am so sick of feeling uncomfortable when my boyfriend goes to put his hands in a certain place because I don’t want him to feel that fat roll, I am so sick of being the chick with a "pretty face", I am so sick of having to try on 50 thousand different outfits before I can leave the house because nothing seems to fit right or it accentuates my pooch, ultimately I am just sick of being sick and tired.
One of my best friends moved into my apartment complex and we started walking 2 miles every night which is really helping to get my energy up and I can already feel a difference, plus I am really starting to like it a lot. I have found I am looking forward to our walks and it's much better than just sitting around my apartment watching tv. I have also started eating a lot better and I have found I like this food even better than the crap I was eating before, I don’t feel so bloated and gross anymore.
So far I have lost 6 lbs and while the weight hasn’t been coming off that quickly, I am proud that I am doing this on my own. Before I found SP I rtied every fad diet in the world, and while the weight would come off rapidly, it came back on just as quickly as soon as I fell of the wagon.
This time is going to be different; I am going to do a complete overhaul on my entire being, not just the outside. I am going to revamp my mind, body, and soul. I have been an unhappy person for far too long, and the sad thing is no one ever knew. This has made my life even harder because I have hidden the fact that I dislike myself. Well no more. I can tell a change has already begun, and I LOVE IT!!!!!
So here is to me, here is to you, here is to our dedication to making our lives better.
Thank you to everyone for your support, I know I am going to need it.
