My Struggles

Hello Peeps!  Here I am again talking about my weightloss struggles.   I made a new facebook friend, and she mentioned that she would love to be my size...that was a first for me :) 

Being the chubby kid always seemed to define who I am.  I always heard comments such as "Oh, your daughter is pretty, just chubby!" or "your wife is pretty, Angel" but then whispered "just chunky" and I would love to say that comments like that didn't hurt or bother me, but I can't lie, they did hurt! I've been all over the scale since I was kid.  During my pre-school years I was thin.  My Elementary years I was chubby.  My middle school I was thin.  My High School Years I was chubby.  My after High School years I was I am chubby again. 

I mentioned a balance in my last post, and I this is where I am at now.  I am no longer worrying about size but just striving to get healthy.  That is my goal and its helping tremendously in my own self esteem and how comfortable I am in my own body.  Chalene Johnson (creator of turbo jam) says "its all up here" while she points to her head. She is referring to getting the energy to finish the workout, but I am applying it to my everyday struggles as well.  If I say I can do it, I probably can if I just apply myself.  If I say I am going to be healthy, you know what?  I will!

Its all fine and dandy if you don't see what I am talking about, so here are are some pictures of myself through out my life :)

    I would love to be your size...and I will some day! =)

    My motto this year is, "I can and I will." I believe it, too. I believe it for you, too.
