I am overweight and very unhappy about it. I don't like shopping anymore because none of the clothes I like fit and the clothes that fit.....I don't like. I sometimes feel guilty or slightly depressed when I eat. It's like I can actually feel the pounds packing on whenever I swallow something. I don't like to look in the mirror anymore because I do not feel beautiful. I am sooo tired of this. I hate feeling like this. I seriously want and need to lose some weight. I want my confidence back and most importantly I want my "old" body back. I haven't always been a big girl. Over the last 4-5 years I have gained a significantly about of weight. This year is my year to lose weight. I am eating healthier and exercising more. I started walking and doing zumba with a friend. I absolutely love it. I haven't seen any changes yet, but people tell me that I look like I have lost some weight. I simply smile and say thank you. Although I can't see it yet, I MUST keep going. I MUST not give up. I MUST stay encouraged and give it my all. I MUST reach my goal and lose 50 pounds by the end of the year.
