I get what denial is like. I now can relate to being truly unhappy in where I'm at in life. A few months ago I was so focused on everyone else in my life and overtime had developed really bad habits. Let me tell you, it didn't just effect me physically, it effected me more mentally. I was so uncomfortable with myself. I didn't consider myself fat or super overweight but in my mind i was defeated. I can relate to those who feel like that. But I will also say- STOP. Your body will not progress if your mind and attitude are not ready to take your body to see change. Stop with the negatives words, stop with the I cant's, and focus on any and all of the positives! To me, being healthy and fit is not about being the skinniest, the prettiest, the fastest, strongest, or any of that. It's about being happy and confident in yourself. I know this may seem cheesy but it's true. Now that I've been able to relate to that mindset and seeing how negative it can be, I was constantly setting myself up for failure. When I took the picture on the left I finally deciding- okay it's time. Time to think positive, find my strengths, work on my weaknesses, and be consistent. And here we are today! Okay I'll stop ranting, I just have this dream where this society will change the way we think about ourselves and our bodies, and I'm making any effort to contribute to that.
