I haven't felt this good...well ever

I feel so good it's unreal. I remember going on my first diet in 2nd grade. 2ND GRADE. it's ridiculous. you'd think by now i'd be skinny after living for so long unhappy. But yet here i am. However, i feel like it is because i havent been truly ready to lose the weight. i've always tried to lose weight because i felt that was what i needed to be happy. But in reality i was doing it to make others happy. "oh if i go to fat camp and come back skinny i'll get a boyfriend." or "oh if i lose the weight my parents will be proud of me". But what about ME? I mean, it is MY body. I need to lose the weight for myself or i will never keep it off. I'm not even 18 yet! I have to start fresh before my years are gone! And i feel i am finally ready. And I feel that there's a reason i decided to make a blog and found blog to lose. And i'm so grateful for people following me and talking to me because it's nice to know you're not alone. I've been eating right, even cooking. I've been going to the gym every day and it just makes me feel so good. When i wasn't doing good i just felt gross all the time. I can see jeans in my near future i'm so ready to start wearing them again! And i'm waiting for my college letters I hope i get accepted. If i do, it will be one more thing pushing me. I'M SO MOTIVATED :)


  1. First of all, I think it's wonderful that you're doing this at such a young age. My bit of advice to you, do this the healthy way, with cutting back on the food and do lots of exercise, and stick with it.

    It sounds like you're off to a good start and it's great that you're going to the gym.

    You have your whole life ahead of you. Lose the weight now while you're young. Get healthy and stay that way. You'll be so happy you did.

  2. Hi! Just saw your question over on my blog, and figured this was the best way to reach you.

    I admire you for being a vegetarian, by the way. I love meat too much to give it up completely.

    As for the tofu shirataki noodles, they're OK. They're not exactly real pasta, because the texture isn't quite right. But if you're looking for an acceptable, lower-Points substitute, they fill the bill nicely. I don't think I'd ever eat them all by themselves, however.

  3. Kelly, thanks for the comment on my blog - I'm glad you found me!

    I was the same way growing up. In the 4th grade, all I wore were big sweaters and tights because I figured the sweaters would cover my belly. It's crazy how young that stuff can start.

    It's so great that you're doing this, I wish I had done it four years ago when I was 18, definitely would have made college a lot more fun!
