I am trying to lose weight so that I can get close to my high school weight. I am not proud of what I let myself get to and have not had the will power to change my appearance. I haven't wanted any of my old high school friends to see me like this nor people that I worked with in the past. I used to always tell myself that I would never let myself get to be like this and I am worse than what I said I would not become. If I don't like myself, how can anyone else like me?

To have a friend, be a friend.

I am DONE being the fat girl.

I am DONE letting food run my life.

I am DONE not carrying about myself.

I am DONE feeling sorry for myself.

I am DONE letting other people influence me.

I am DONE letting other people make me feel guilty.

I am DOING this with my daughter and together we can accomplish anything, because we are STRONG women.

    Lol love autocorrect: that was appreciated the support-- not adore the hate 😝 I've let my people pleaser nature keep me in relationships, situations, and around toxic people for a long time. I've got the big 5-0 coming up next yr and am goal minded

    Hi Vanessa! Thank you for posting on my page for Emotional Eaters Team. I haven't been there in a while but I adore hate the support. Good luck in your fitness journey. I really want to change my weight and my life for my son, as a healthy example.
