The Old Me

I thought maybe some of my newer readers would like to meet the old me...If you haven't already.

She was tired.

She was in denial.

She was fake.

But most of all, she is me. She is a part of my life, my reason for everything I have accomplished. I deserve more than what I was letting myself have. I deserve to live, not just exist.

**7/10/13 --- Update!! Since I linked this post to my youtube video I wanted to put up an after picture to inspire and hopefully help motivate others!

"I deserve to live, not just exist."

It was a statement very similar to this that got me working hard on m y weight loss journey. I was lazy about it in 2010, only lost 15 lbs, but after I realized how ashamed I was and how much I was hiding from the world, I went into 2011 with a determination to LOSE BIG. I wasn't going to hide anymore. I deserved to live. :) I know these words.

You have come a long way lady! Good for you!

Unfortunately I learned that lesson in my late 30's. I was merely going through the motions, existing day to day, waiting to be happy. I'm so happy that you learned the lesson SO MUCH EARLIER!
