A New and Improved Mind Set
It has finally come to my attention, that I have been living with such negativity that it has weighed down not only my confidence, my moods, and my zest for life but it has held down my soul. I do not intend to ever let this be the case again. My hope in blogging on this site, is not to become popular, but to keep track of the success I have in promoting a new me! Plus, I have to say some of these other posts have been pretty helpful indeed. I don't have very many female friends, and that is mostly my fault I never really put on my sisterly hat to find any. I am a recluse in that aspect. I hope by coming here I can find a handful of friends to ride out this new journey with.
I suppose I should start with a description of myself, and then post the goals I hope to reach within this coming year. As I type this I realize that really I hadn't thought about these and therefore am coming up with a few of them as I think of it.
I am 22 years old, I am 5'1, and I weigh 210lbs. Yes, this is very unhealthy and I have been heavy my whole life. Excepting a brief period in high school when I lost about 60 lbs doing DDR. I have nobody to blame but myself for this, and I do not intend to stress out about it anymore. Stop stressing and start doing is how it goes, I believe. I came to the conclusion about week ago that this revelation is extremely over-do and I am glad I am finally getting to it. I just needed a way to keep track of myself, and I feel like blogging will be the best way to help me with that.
I won't lie in saying that my current relationship status has a VERY big part to do with me wanting to finally do something about my weight. I have been with my boyfriend Brian for a year and a half now, and I am absolutely in love with him. Part of me wants to look my best for him, and in truth I want him to be able to carry me over whatever threshold on our wedding day with ease, and not have to struggle, hahaha.
Anyways, my goal is simply this: confidence. Confidence is something that I have never had a plethera of, and I am simply wanting to feel comfortable in my own skin for once. I know this is not going to be an easy journey, I am going to hurt, and want to give up but I'm hoping with the right amount of "get'r done" attitude I will kick that give up part of me in the ass.
Well, that's all I have for now. I will elaborate more on this of course in the year to come, and be posting pictures of progress, and such. I leave only with this question......
If you could give me any piece of advice from your own journey to a new you, what would it be?
