I weigh in.

There's no turning back. Once I click "Publish Post" it's out there for the world to see. Of course, there is the technical truth that I could always delete anything I write...but I won't stoop so low :) hehe.

I'm just gonna say it. I'm an overweight 23-year-old. I'm a size 16. I probably weigh 195 pounds.

I admitted it. That's step one. As long as I can remember, I've been a little big bigger than the other girls. In 6th grade I went through puberty. I got womanly hips and thighs. Mum bought me jeans in the women's department. They were a size 6. But none of my friends were a size 6. They still shopped in the little girl's section. But it was Middle School. Everybody was unhappy with the way they looked. Those girls were probably insecure because they couldn't wear a bra. But that is irrelevant. I'll bring myself to the present.

It was a couple of days ago that I decided. Although I'm nowhere near the size of the contestants on The Biggest Loser, I know that this is not the weight I'm supposed to be. This is not what I'm supposed to look like. I'm completely dissatisfied with my body. Being overweight is one of those things that can prevent a person from living a life that is full of abundance and...well, life.

Blah, blah, blah. Everybody knows why a person wants to lose weight, so I wont post meaningless commentary.

The purpose of this blog is to post my thoughts, musings (that's redundant!), eating habits, fears, struggles and hopeful weight loss as I journey towards living a healthier lifestyle.

As they say...well, I'm not really sure who says it, but "Imma keep it real."

  1. I'm 19 years old, a size 18, and weigh in at 225. it's the biggest i've ever been, and i'm sick of it.

    i just noticed this blog tonight, and i'm excited to keep up with you as we both venture into healthier living.

    i've been eating vegetarian for a week now, and started jogging last night (tonight was night2), and that's saying something with this insane Orientation schedule.

    best of luck sweetie, don't give up hope.... one year from now if we can look back and say, "i'm so glad i didn't stop there..." oh how worth it it shall be.
