53 lbs GONE!

Wow, it feels amazing after my weigh in this morning. I busted through a plateau and was rewarded for sticking with it.  I cried some happy tears! I am enjoying the shopping trips and new clothes. I am learning to embrace the body I have, flaws and all. Screw what society thinks beauty is. I laugh at all the “sheeps” in this world. The women that strive to follow a trend or look a certain way. I am not doing this for any one but me. My health is way more important than a pair of booty shorts! Society needs to realize that regardless of someone’s size, beauty comes from within. I decided that I will continue to make my own path and be a “wolf”.  I refuse to conform to what society thinks I should be. I am not a size 2. I am a size 22! I am not blonde haired and blue eyed. I have tattoos and piercings. I have the mouth of a well educated sailor. I am a fan of 4 letter words.  I am a lover not a fighter. I shine my own light and march to the beat of my own drum. I laugh at the ones that tell me I can’t do something because you know what, I did and will! I appreciate the love and support from friends and family. I must admit though, that the compliments are hard to get used to.  I have never thought of myself as being beautiful, gorgeous, awesome or amazing. I have always just been “Mel”.  I have always been the weird or misunderstood girl in the corner checking out my surroundings. Now I have pushed myself to the for front. I want to do big things. I let myself go for too long so it is my time to shine.  Get on my level or sit back and watch me do big things. I have no time for nay sayers and haters. I love those who love me. I am eternally grateful for my biggest fans, you all know who you are…You make me want to be a better person! <3
