I can't believe that 3 years ago, right after the birth of my son I started this journey! I was over 250 pounds, unhealthy, unhappy, and scared for the journey ahead of me.
Me right before my son was born. I was so uncomfortable at my baby shower. I had to rig on some maternity pants!
Now I had two babies to raise and I couldn't raise them to be unhealthy, the generational curse of unhealthy eating in my family was going to end with me!!!
I am now a beautiful 190 pounds! I've lost and gained a little but I've really learned to love myself and this body (the only one I've got) no matter how much I weigh. Even better God loves me and can USE ME at any weight I am!
I even ran my first 5K in February.
My second 5K in March, and I have my third, a survival mud run, scheduled for later this month!!!

I don't have to be perfect
I don't have to be skinny
I don't have to be a supermodel! (Though I have thought about being a plus size model!) Because who else knows that the worlds "plus size" is really just healthy!!!

I am beautiful, confident, and I know I WILL NEVER give up!!! I will never say "I'll just start again tomorrow" "I'll just finish out the week and start over Monday" No, it's about making the healthy choice everyday. Making the next best decision!

God has big plans for me, and I have BIG dreams!!
I want to have a weight loss camp for girls, because our youth are facing a big problem. Not only is being overweight okay, it's "better." That's a lie! Being healthy and active is better! Eating nothing but junk food and sitting around all day is not living!
I want to be a fitness instructor. I want to teach Zumba or Turbo Kick, I've even been thinking of starting my own fitness dance craze!
I want to have more children and this time with a healthy pregnancy, finally not fearing gestational diabetes or high blood pressure!

My life has only begun and I don't ever want to look back!!!
