Why am I here? I'm here for the same reasons everyone else is here. I'm here to lose the weight and to gain my life back.

I'm here to find me again even if that means forcing myself to be vulnerable. I want to gain confidence in all areas of my life, but mostly I want to be sexy and attractive and not be afraid to be that way. I want both my inner and outer beauty to shine.

I've been chunky since puberty hit and for one emotional reason after another I turned to food. I wanted to stuff feelings and emotions and bury them deep. Really, I told myself constantly...the oreos are not going to hurt anything and besides they taste so good...

I think though that God does not give us anything we can't handle. I believe that there is a reason for everything in life and that we are put through tests to mold us, help us grow and to use our experiences to our greatest potential in helping others. It's just up to us to find strength to use it and go for it.

I hope I can be an inspiration to others!

The difference between try and triumph is just a little

    Hi Wonder Woman! I just saw your page on the French women don't get fat team. I think it is hilarious that you are a member of that team and the Eat Clean page as well! I am too! How do you reconcile those two extreme ideologies in your mind? I am the same way but just go from one extreme to the other. I think it is called yo-you dieting. Have you found a balance or are they not opposites to you? Just curious.

    Welcome to Where are YOU walking to! Several of us are on our way to the Golden Gate bridge over in the "Golden in May" thread in Challenge walks. We'd be glad to have you join us. Next week we'll likely start discussing our June destination.

    Glad to have you in the group.
