So I have been over weight pretty much since High school. In Jr. high I had an eating disorder and I conquered it in high school. The problem was that in conquering it I ballooned out. Then I was so afraid to lose weight and relapsing that I just ignored the problem...unfortunately when does that ever work? So I got bigger and bigger! I went through beauty school with about a hundred or so skinny gorgeous talented women. My self esteem plummeted at that point...I wonder why right? Then on graduation my family came and saw me (that's the picture) I felt so beautiful...and everyone kept telling me I was beautiful if only I would lose some weight! Gosh that night I got lectured ( it was more like talked to but it felt like lectures) by everyone! Then I went on a camping trip and got talked to some more...I know everyone was just trying to be helpful and they gave me all these tips (they had always been a size 2 what did they know). But when I got back I really thought about it...I have control of myself and I can count calories without going overboard and exercise without going to the extreme...cant I? I decided that I wasn't going to let something that happened in middle school affect the rest of my life. So I decided to take it slow and lose weight THE HEALTHY WAY! I am finding that its a lot harder said than done...but I battle with it everyday and that's all you can do right? Take one step at a time and keep trying...NEVER GIVE UP...NEVER SURRENDER!

    Your life is going to follow your thoughts. Become what you believe!

    Believe that you are blessed.
    Believe that your best days are in front of you.
    Believe that you are strong, healthy,talented and well able.

    Get rid of the wrong thoughts that are contaminating your thinking and start meditating on what God says about you.

    God Bless

    sometimes life can throw you a curve ball
    and you can sit and think"this aint fair at all"
    but rise up to the challenge and dig down deep
    and the victory of success you shall reap

    brush yourself off today is a new day
    all of us have at one time lost our way
    but the tunnel really isnt all that dark
    because of the glow that shines from the SPARK!

    God bless

    Congrats on the new job. I never really knew that hairdressers made min wage, but I will tell you this, I saw my hairdresser work at JC Penny's salon for years. I have been going to her for over 10 years. and she works hard. how she owns her own salon and has a great business. So that maybe something to look forward to and that 1800 hours will of paid off.
    Good Luck.. your doing great.. now I got to go color this gray hair.. LOL
