People call weight loss a lifestyle change. It really is. You're not just making a diet change or incorporating more physical activity. Sometimes you have to change your entire outlook on life.

I've spent a fair portion of my life ridiculing myself. I beat myself up if someone didn't like me, criticized myself if I wasn't an immediate success at everything, and gave myself guilt trips when I did things that weren't necessarily good for me. It was like I took the phrase "I am my own worst enemy" and ran a marathon with it. I gained the weight I did because I wasn't a healthy person.

Now that I feel I have a better handle on what weight loss actually means, I'm ready. I'm ready to tackle the vulnerabilities and the fear of failure. I'm ready to accept the support that people are willing to give me so long as I ask for it. I'm done treating myself like I'm not worth the effort when I know that I am. I deserve to be the best me that I can give myself, and that work starts today.

My Program:
I like walking/hiking, absolutely love yoga in every way, shape, and form, and I'm learning to like strength training too. I also enjoy most water sports when the opportunity presents itself.
I'll pretty much try anything physical at least twice. Once to get over the novelty and the second time to determine if I actually like it.

-My hair is naturally curly.
-I have a tattoo on the back of my left shoulder.
