Okay....this is me.

Well actually this was me about three years ago, but this is a shot of me at the height of my plumpness and glory.

I am learning to embrace my soft squishiness, but it is not really the look I want to sport for the rest of my life.

Though I believe that it is important to be happy right where you your current state, I do not believe we should ever be completely satisfied with our current state. Dissatisfaction initiates progression and creativity and I am at a point where progression and creativity are needed and welcome!

I am on a journey of self reclamation! I am not going to settle any longer for the lower version of myself that I have befriended for many many years. In fact I don't really know if befriended is the right word for it, because speaking ill of, lying to, and mistreating someone isn't friendly at all! The truth is I've been belittling myself for far too long!!

There is a mighty obstacle in the way though.


I love food!! And when I say love, I'm talking a capital L-O-V-E. That coupled with any emotional baggage I'm hanging on to makes for a long shot at permanent weight loss. it goes. I'll be testing some new ideas and techniques I've got up my sleeve.

I'll let you know how it goes!


  1. I've been hard at work trying to conquer my weight challenge too. You're excitement has re-inspired me! Good luck to you!

  2. ME TOO! It's not like another addiction that it would be good to just quit all together. Oh no. Food is something we have to have in order to live...however, it is all about control. Go Michelle!! Oh, by the way, I'm not where I want to be yet, but I've been able to do some neat things already on my journey. I'm planning on running a 10K this summer. And I'm not a real athlete!
