Stop giving up!"

Thanks, Barb!

Indeed, I am tired of starting over. If you've read previous blogs, you'll know that I used to weigh close to 300 pounds. So yeah, I'm doing...better. But still, I get side-tracked like a mofo.

THIS is my year. I can feel it, see it in my face, tell it in my waistline- even my feet are smaller. MY FEET! I used to wear a size 10w. Now I can wear a 9-9.5 regular!

I can feel it in the indigestion when I eat crappy food. I can feel the depression when I'm not exercising as I should be (who knew that was an actual thing??!). I can feel it in my pride, when I smile at strangers, get gussied up for the husband, drop my daughter off at school. I am a different person than I was, and I can only see it getting better if I keep going down the right path.

If I can make it this far, seriously...anyone can. I feel like if I can do this...anyone can.

Join me, in this not giving up business. Life is too short to be worried about pulling down your shirt to cover your @ss, or getting multiple hair cuts and color to...what? Disguise that you're fat? To be spending at least $5 more a top, $10 more for pants, because "the cost of fabric"? To get your French tips done, because nothing says you're skinny like a French manicure. To worry about which T-SHIRT to buy (V-neck? sweetheart? ) when you know those fit people can throw on some fruit-of-the-looms and Juicy sweatpants and STILL look more put together than YOU.

It's bullsh*t. And I'm over it. 2015 is going to be my b*tch.
