PERSONAL>> Our big life changes


So, I guess Ill never tell anyone im fat, I dont really like the word, but I have come to accept it, because honestly its just that, a word. Ive always wanted to lose a bit, but just for health reasons and family health history, because people..I love my body! Its fun at times, but a bummer at others, I've got the chest to fit into the pretty tops, but then other times a slinky dress isnt exactly flattering. However, I've come to live with this lovely self that I am. 

Recently we were brought into the world of Weight Watchers, and let me begin with, and in no way or terms am I paid to write this post. So, with that said, approximately yesterday, we both began the weight watchers journey. I never realized the things I put into my body, and the multiple tastes and snacks that I ate without realizing it. I don't think I have the full picture yet, but after a long night of cooking last night, and measuring, and being careful,  I realized that those things were important for me to live a healthy lifestyle. I can still eat, by golly I CAN eat, but just smarter. Im not talking salads and nothing else all day people, Im talking REAL food! 

So I hope you will all bear with us through this journey and help support this great decision we have made. Its really not a "weight" thing, but it is...weight is important and you cant be too overweight because of the health effects it takes on your body(short and long term).
So here is to us! I hope you all understand this journey and understand that I still wholeheartedly believe in "fat acceptance" and loving your body.

  6. I think the best thing to do is to not deprive yourself of REAL food. It's easier to live with your life change when you're not just eating salads and cabbage soup or pre-prepared foods, but real meals (especially with local ingredients. You seem to have a good self esteem so you're already on a good path! Good luck with your journey and never forget the love you have for yourself!
