from a girl to a woman

I used to truly believe that I would be fat all my life and that was just part of who I was: Krystle, the big girl with the pretty face.

I didn't know me.

Now I know that taking control of my life is possible. I'm not cursed by some "fat gene." It's not hereditary. I'm not "big boned". I'm just a girl who was never taught to stop eating when I was satisfied or the importance of exercise. I'm a girl who never wanted to admit I was overweight. I'm a girl who used to be scared to say "I need a diet". I'm a girl who used to lie and say I weighed 180 when in reality I weighed well over 200. 

Now I'm a woman.

I'm a woman who accepts that I'm not p e r f e c t. I'm a woman who likes the feeling of being in control. I'm a woman who is tired of making excuses. A woman who is not afraid to admit that I weighed 253lbs. I'm a woman who realizes that I have it in me to not only change my own life, but help others to change theirs. 

I'm damn proud of who I was because it made me who I am today. I'm damn proud of who I am today because I know that I'll be a better me tomorrow

I love me some me.

Thanks for loving me too!
