So completely, madly in love with my new little nephew!
I have struggled with my weight for most of my life, if not all of my life. I honestly cannot remember a time when I was not heavy and I crossed well into the 200's before I even hit my teen years. I lost a substantial amount of weight several years ago, however, weight loss had to take a back seat to life, family, and health for quite a few years and I managed to gain all of it back, plus 40 more just for good measure.
For many years now I have faced new and worsening health problems. Everything culminated when I hit my 20's and everyday since has been a battle. I have to admit that sometimes the outlook on my life makes me feel more like crawling in a hole than doing anything else, but thankfully God keeps a hold on me and I keep moving forward.
I have been with SP for almost four years now and though I love this community, I chose to take a break from it for multiple months while I was feeling worse and gaining weight back. I am not sure if it was shame, frustration, or just lack of motivation, but I decided it was easier not to face anything about my weight, including SP. However, life has shifted for me recently and I have decided to make a comeback.
So no, I do not (yet) have an amazing weight loss story to tell. I have been losing and gaining, starting and stopping, climbing on the wagon and flying off, but I refuse to give up. Sometimes in life you just have to put your head down and press on, for me, this is one of those times.
So here I stand, back again, undefeated.
My name is Ruth. I am a Christian, twenty-six years old, single, and ridiculously nerdy. I am learning to live a life that is very different from what I always imagined, it is a rough road, but I will walk it to the end.
Jesus is absolutely everything to me!!
I am a writer (working on the whole published thing) and I love to read! I also enjoy singing, cooking, dancing, taking pictures, working out, natural hair care, taking care of my nephews, and learning in general. I am slightly obsessed with a few different T.V. shows (fangirl alert) and I don't mind a good debate.
I am a very passionate person and more than a little crazy, but you know, who isn't?
If you ever need encouragement, advice, someone to talk to, anything, please feel free to get in touch with me.
(My handle is a short and really quite uninteresting story)
I also have a tumblr, but unless you are a fangirl, you don't want that.
