I have an unhealthy addiction to weight loss. I literally go through life daily thinking about my weight and how I can be smaller. This blog will take you on a journey of my thoughts, my struggles, and ultimately - my successes.

The Secret to Weight Loss
During my twenties, I've been on a roller coaster of weight. My weight has been up and down over the past seven or eight years. I've done some reflecting and the one thing I can say is that I never accepted myself at any weight. I felt like I could always have a smaller waist line, a flat stomach, smaller breast, or proportioned legs - regardless of my size I was always trying to change something. I've heard people say that the things you focus on in life will intensify. For example, if you think you have a big head, you begin to focus on it, obsess over it if you will, and your main focus (regardless of whether it's related) becomes your big head. You start to think that it's all other people can see and you react accordingly. Eventually, you end up going out of your way to make accommodations for your big head. In the process, you've forgotten all about the rest of your life and you're unnecessarily stressed out about your head. In short, that's exactly what has happen to me. I have let my thoughts with weight consume me - because of that I am reprogramming my weight loss plan. My number one goal is to be comfortable in the skin I am currently in - all 152 pounds of it. I will continue to eat healthy and work out as a part of my plan. The difference now is that I'm learning to love me just as I am. That's the Secret! Adios!
