Power from within

Hi everyone! I am a year out from undergrad, and a year into my graduate studies. I live in New York City where life can be SO exuberant, yet hectic at the same time. I'm a classical singer who is also interested in development and fundraising in the arts. After graduating college, I found myself going through a series of rough patches and unfortunately, I coped with food. I gained about 17 lbs in total since then.

Hi everyone! I am a year out from undergrad, and a year into my graduate studies. I live in New York City where life can be SO exuberant, yet hectic at the same time. I'm a classical singer who is also interested in development and fundraising in the arts. After graduating college, I found myself going through a series of rough patches and unfortunately, I coped with food. I gained about 17 lbs in total since then. I was not raised with a healthy body image at all -- my parents were always telling me I was overweight (when I was 125 and 5'5") and I felt awful about it. I later learned that my mom is anorexic, so she projects her awful body image onto me. While I'm not overweight, I'd like to put an end to the unhealthy coping habits and the unhealthy relationship that I have with food. Only I have the power to conquer this, and I'm ready to do it. I deserve to have my full health. That does NOT mean this journey will be perfect by any means. But, it means that I know I'll be ok and that I can trust myself. Thankful I have a community that is willing to listen. :)

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."

Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane
