I’ve always struggled with my weight. When I walked past the mirror I hated what I saw. I knew I needed to change. so, in June of 2015 I decided to change. I lost 20 pounds. I was looking good. but then, I gained it all back plus more. I was so disappointed in my self. I was starting to gain self love and I ruined it. Summer of 2016 I reached my heaviest of 200lbs. I cried everytime I looked in the mirror. I hated what I saw and I couldn’t stand staring at it any longer. I was determined to change for GOOD! The weight started dropping and it was happening faster than I thought. people started to notice which motivated me and I got so much support from friends and family! I am still ok the middle of my journey but it will never end. I will continue to be the me that I want to be and everyday I will slowly transform. I want everyone to know that you can gain self love and you can be the you you’ve always wanted to be!
All of my life. but, in 2016 it started to get out of my control.
