I'm very honest, so if you're on my page actually reading this, you may as well know that from the start :D

I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Looking back, many of the poor decisions I've made were due to my very low self-esteem. I've never had a drop of self-confidence. To be straightfoward about it, I've never in my life felt as if I belonged here or mattered.

Since last year, I've learned to value myself as a person a lot! Despite this, I still have low self-esteem to a degree, and I firmly believe it's keeping me from being everything I want to be. The low self-esteem is due to my being overweight. So guess what I did on a tiny budget? Bought p90x and the necessary workout equipment!

As I waited for it to arrive, I fasted for a few days, and the LORD showed me that I was addicted to food; whenever I was feeling blue the first thing I did was reach for some unhealthy junk and I never cared about caloric intake and whatnot... and don't let me begin to tell you how absolutely depressed and unmotivated I was to get off my bum and work out... but that is no longer the case!

Since this year began, I have been mindful of drinking 8 or more glasses of water daily. As a former Pepsi addict (I was sucking back 5 or 6 cans a day! :-O), I saved a couple of my old bottles and filled them with water, and it became an easy way for me to get used to drinking the H20! If I REALLY have to have a sweet drink, I just go for juice and green tea, too. And I feel better for it! I believe I even dropped some pounds just by doing that!

I'm not getting any younger and there are so many things I want to be able to do, so many clothes I want to be able to wear and look good in without being conscious of my body. So I've started p90x (after being inspired by a friend of a friend, admittedly) and I love the pain! The pain is just a badge of change, the 'big girl' caterpillar beginning her metamorphosis into the fit, fine butterfly she's always wanted to be :D

So I'm doing it for me. No more listening to people who don't want me to be the best I can be... It's about what I want now, and I will know what it's like to be physically fit, with self-confidence that reaches beyond the stratosphere. I know I deserve it, and it's been 30 years coming!

I'm pushing play... for me!

My Goals:
I will not stop until I can wear a size 12 again! Quitting cigarettes is hard... but I'm still trying! Instead of being mad at myself for ever starting, I'll choose to focus that energy on quitting!

My Program:
ROUND 2 of P90X has begun! Accountability is a necessity!

I work best when I stick to something faithfully; I will not grow the least bit complacent!

Personal Information:
I finally had to learn to love myself enough to do this. Not doing it for anyone else; I'm being selfish for happiness for myself!

I can do it! I put my mind to it, and I pray that GOD helps me stay focused and aware and motivated.

I'm counting the Victory! I proved to myself that I could stick with something for more than a month! To succeed, I must maintain no matter what! I want to be fit for the rest of my life!

Other Information:
My hobbies include drawing, writing, reading, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE dancing~! One day I'd love to study some form of martial arts... tae kwon do, krav maga, or maybe even kung fu!

    Read your blog about P90X...That's awesome that you're realizing how vital food is. Food is what holds me back sometimes...eating too much or not eating enough. Both ways I mess up on just remind me that food is fuel for my body and it won't operate correctly if I don't have enough or if it's the wrong type. All that to say, thanks for posting your blog!! :)

    Hey there! I was browsing through the People with Allergies team and happened to see your most recent blog post. Just wanted to say keep up the great work! Looks like you are doing awesome with the p90x. I want to try that one of these days, as I have several friends on sparkpeople doing it...seems to be the thing to do! Take care! emoticon
