All my life I've battled with weight and have had a severe lack of confidence in myself. At the same time, I don't love myself (in fact I may change this "about me" like 30 times), but love others much more.

I find myself comparing my looks to my gorgeous, thin and athletic sister. She's got strait A's in high school, involved in many extra curricular activities, and cares a lot about her appearance, so she always looks flawless. Yeah she's my sister, and I'm older than her, but I see her as successful already, and I'm not.

As a Chef Instructor and a Military girlfriend, I have come to notice that life is getting more stressful and the "adult world" is not in the slightest bit enjoyable. I never liked being in high school and could not wait to go and do the things I wanted to do, but now that I get to do that, I have slipped in managing my appearance.

I am a HUGE health nut and love to learn about food and nutrition; so why so overweight?! There is no excuse for a chef and a girl my age to be in the shape I'm in. (I won't even get started how I feel about myself while dating a Marine!)

Lately I've found it hard to be positive towards myself, but have found it easy to have faith in others and to boost others' well being. For a 20 year old, I think twice my age. I am very insightful and open minded and in exchange I am very knowledgeable for someone in my age group. Although I'm mature, I can't help but wonder if I'm missing out on something, others my age get to do.

On a positive note (gotta end this well) I am confident in my skills as a Chef and an artist, and most of all as a supporting girlfriend/ future wife for my Marine. He hasn't met girl like me before that can be some feminine AND hang with the guys at the same time. (it's probably why I have more guy friends).

Kory, my future husband and Marine, is my entire motivation to be healthy and beautiful and most of all get confident in myself. I wouldn't have gotten through so much already without him. So I hope to impress him and to make him proud by accomplishing all of my goals. I pray God will give him and me the patience to get it done!
