I've been fat for most of my life. Growing up I'd always been the "big girl" in my group and was treated that way.
Deep down inside I wanted to feel beautiful...attractive. I always dreamed of looking good in a bikini, but I thought it was never for me. I'd always be "the big girl".
Something changed, and I decided not to accept this and see just what I could do for myself if I put my mind to it...and really put in the effort. I'd been a member at a local gym for years walking on the treadmill a few times each week going nowhere. I was still really unhappy wasting my time and my money.
I've lost count of the amount of times I cried myself to sleep hating what I was.
I got the help I needed and wanted. It's been a frustrating, challenging, painful and tearful journey but it's been worth every second. I finally reached my goal of rocking a bikini and I'm really proud of myself. I sat around for years wishing it would happen but nothing did until I got off my butt and did something about it.
Now I want to help other girls out there who secretly would really love to wear a bikini and be proud of themselves. It's a life-changing experience to be able to say that you did what you always wanted to do, it's empowering and I love it.
