I have always been "the fat girl..."

I spent so long being "the fat girl," that I became convinced that was who I am. I would always hate my body. I would always be the co-worker who ordered fast food, the friend who's jeans were 6 sizes bigger than everyone else's, the girl who hung her head in shame because no one looked her way. Fat robbed me of happiness, joy & confidence. It was my label. No one looked deeper. Six weeks ago, Fat and I began a battle; a fight that this time, I wasn't willing to give up. When Fat screamed "You can't do this!" I gave it one more push up. When Fat wanted cookies and cake and soda, I drowned it in water, fruits and veggies. Fat has slowly hung it's head in shame as Fit gets compliments, second glances and new jeans. The only difference in Fat and Fit is "I." And I am doing this. So long old friend. Hope to never see you again!

    Good luck in your weight loss journey... but I would encourage to work on loving yourself for you and not basing it your physical appearance. There are plenty of people that did not let being overweight or obese that did not let their weight stop them from living life - I worry that if you really placed that much importance on it that losing weight isn't going to help that aspect. You want to be healthy mentally as well as physically.

    First: You are not "the fat girl"! While you may have been overweight, that does not define you!

    Second: You're attitude is absolutely awesome! I promise if you keep going with that attitude, nothing will stop you!
