Strong is the new Skinny

This is my final straw! I'm getting tired of looking at myself and not recognizing who I am anymore. I'm disappointed at myself for letting it go for this long and giving up at the first sign of weakness. And I am tired of always saying tomorrow day after day.

First step is recognizing you have an issue.
I've been struggling with weight issues since my pre-teen days and jumping on all sorts of diets. 
I'm at my heaviest I've EVER been and I'm not happy about my body. 
 With weight issues comes lack of self confidence and self-esteem.
 I won't deny that I struggle with that on a daily basis and it's something that I'll have to work on while going on this journey to a healthier, more energetic and more confident ME. 

My goals isn't exactly to lose weight and be skinny. I want to lose weight and be strong and FIT!
I want to be able to walk out the door with my head held high and not give a damn about anybody thinks because deep inside I know I'm happy with who I am, how I look and how I feel about myself.

My second step is to make myself accountable. 
I thought about making a separate blog all about health, fitness and eating right.
I just don't want another blog to keep track of. I didn't want to become overwhelmed with keeping up with 2 blogs. Figured the best route and least stress way would be posting here daily or weekly on my updates and whereabouts in this journey to a healthy me. 
For those who are interested I'll add labels to the left of my blog for healthy recipes and work-outs. 

Third step is pretty simple but the hardest of them all.  
Like good old Nike always say,

No more excuses for this gal. 
I'm on a one way train to a better, healthier and more confident me.

  4. You can do it! I love that you say you want to get healthy and fit rather than lose weight. I really think that's the best way to conquer it is thinking about it as a positive. At the end of January ~ I'm doing a Health Week. I too am getting fit and healthy.
