The Elegant Elephant

I'm a 30 year old gal, hoping this site can help inspire me to make some seriously needed lifestyle changes. I've struggled with my weight for most of my life, and learned the hard way that nothing makes me more miserable than dieting. But if I do it in the right way and for the right reasons, maybe I won't be miserable? I'm just hoping I can learn to replace some unhealthy habits with healthy ones that I can carry forward for the rest of my (hopefully long!) life.

I love my curves and reading about plus-size fashion. Life's too short for low self-esteem! I really believe one of the first steps for getting healthier is embracing yourself for who you are right now.

(P.S. I'm kind of obsessed with elephants.)

My Goals:
Lose 10 percent of my body weight by the end of August 2013.


My Program:
-- Blogging a lot. Mostly just for myself -- it's how I organize my thoughts and feelings. I realized if I'm going to be successful, I have to be honest with myself about a lot of things... and that's harder than it sounds.

-- Reconnecting with my love of veggies, fruit, and whole grains, and letting go of my unhealthy eating habits, slowly but surely

-- Gentle exercise and stretching (I have a foot injury I'm trying to heal)

"I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step.
If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.
In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking."
