Let me start this post by acknowledging the fact that I love the woman God is creating. I love all of her. So. Much.
Now that that’s over, I’m sure you’re wondering about the title. Even if you’re not, here’s the back story:
I’ve been what most would call skinny my entire life. It wasn’t until undergrad that I picked up the pounds. Even then, during my senior year I dropped so much weight my sister called me the Black Paris Hilton. I didn’t know how small I was until I saw a picture of myself, smaller than I’d been even in high school. I was comfortable with that body, but with time comes a slower metabolism. Add that to a budding relationship and you’ve got a lot of unexpected weight!
Fast forward eight years and I’m here. Longing for the girl in the picture. I have good enough sense to know that it didn’t accumulate overnight, so it will take quite some time to come off. Sure, I’m not morbidly obese, but I lack discipline in certain areas. Let me restate that, I lacked discipline in certain areas. I know exactly how I gained the weight: eating too much of the wrong foods and lack of movement.
So, how do I lose the weight? I guess I’ll have to do the opposite: eat better and move more!
I am one who has kinda struggled with my weight over the past few months. This is new to me. Like, I’ve always been skinny, so to be in the “thick” category is weird. Sure, there are some who want to be thick but I’m not one of those people. I prefer the semi-athletic, slim look of my late teens early twenties. So, while I’m not what most would deem fat, I am uncomfortable with my weight and I am taking strides to do something about it.
It’s a sacrifice of time and tasty foods, but in the end, I WILL REACH MY GOAL!!!
I’ll need your support and will continuously update you all on my progress!
Here’s to a healthier, happier, me!
