I am 27yrs old and 5'5. I am an animal lover, painter and overall daydreamer. I have struggled with my weight my entire life, and it has made me alittle bitter, but it has also made me into a strong, determined, and self relient person. I think growing up on the heavey side has given me a lot of compassion for people. I do not regret anything, but I do more than anything want to be a healthy person. I have done things I am not proud of in the name of weight loss, and I am not going back to that. Feeling thin is great and meeting goals is wonderful, but I want to be proud of how I meet those goals as well. I am focusing on eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle more than I am on being on a diet or weight loss. Now I would just like to focus on getting stronger, and having my body reflect my healthy lifestyle. I have changed as a person in so many ways since Ive started this journey and I am always finding new ways to be proud of myself. More than anything I am looking for support and friendship! I know I can do this, but its so much better when you have the supoort of people who are going through the same struggles and challenges as you. Good luck to everyone and cheers to us! You are an inspiration to me
