    "Everything I was told should be my greatest insecurities and weaknesses, everything that I've been labeled - short, nerdy, skinny, weak, impulsive, ugly, tomboy, poor, rebel, loud, freak, crazy - turned out to be my greatest strengths. I didn't become successful in spite of them. I became successful because of them"
    ~AJ Lee

    Hello! I'm really happy for you. Me? I've been on a yo-yo cycle for the past year. Same 3-4 pounds. 😡 I've been so much better about working out/activity. At least, I'm building core strength.
