Many are unaware that below the superficial confidence once was a somewhat fragile teenager who battled with self confidence due to such issues as her weight since
age 13. Puberty was not kind to me and as I entered my teenage years my weight escalated. I was left alone to deal with the issue and instead of seeking out help I turned to food as a comfort. I was trapped in a sick cycle. The more weight I gained, the more depressed I was, and the more I ate. At one point, I quickly ended a high school relationship when I couldn't justify why someone would even care about my "fat self."
My eating habits got worse and ultimately I was lying to myself. I wanted so badly to be this healthier person, but I wasn't taking the necessary steps to get better.
I could easily attach a weight goal to this journey but honestly I want to achieve true confidence and a healthier lifestyle. I want to break bad habits and create fun new ones. I just want to feel good and be happy with myself.
