Thailand Nov 2014 - ~233lbs, Feeling very uncomfortable in my own skin

This needs to change, very uncomfortable at this weight and I hate pics right now (10/14 @~234)

I felt huge here, realized this is what I look like and how everyone else sees me. (11/6/11 @220)

It is time to start taking care of myself. It is not selfish, arrogant or narcissistic to take care of oneself.

It's time.

I deserve to be healthy. I deserve to be at a healthy weight, to eat nourishing food and to get sleep. I deserve to work out my body, meditate and take time out for me. It is not self-centered or egotistical. It is taken care of me. Loving me. Respecting me.

This year, I will teach myself to treat myself well and with love. I am DONE being the fat girl who puts herself last in every way! No more!

    emoticon Happy Birthday DONE GIRL

    The Taurus girl is born to a mother she can never live up to and as a result she becomes very stubborn because she dislikes her mother pushing her into things so her mother can look good. (Think Stage-mother). The "Bull" of Taurus is strong and steady and takes her time to get things done. She can have a weight problem since she loves the taste and smells of food. Taurus makes a wonderful cook and can be great at planning entailment for others. (Think wedding planner or restaurant owner.) She also loves to decorate and makes a great designer or real estate woman. Her health issue is around her throat and thyroid. She can have a wonderful singing voice and she makes a great actress. She gets along with Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Pisces and sometimes Scorpio who is really her opposite.
