My 22nd year of living, I was in love, happy and 300lbs. The only issue was, I'd get sick so often, due to my morbid obesity. I'd always end up in the hospital somehow with loved ones surrounding me. That same year, someone very dear to me was diagnosed with a very rare blood disease. The difference between him and I, I had a choice to get better, he didn't. And that crushed me. I chose my path, he simply woke up to his new fate. I knew if I wanted to be there to take care of him and others, that I would have to take care of myself first...and so I did.
My personal current journey is to continue persuing confidence. Even after the weightloss it's something I struggle with daily.
What does Body positivity mean to me? To love your exterior is to be at peace with your interior. To treat yourself with love and kindness and to allow that light to be spread to others who need it.
Starting TIP! Keep failing, keep on failing!! If I had feared failing I would have never got to the attempt that led to success. #wlstories
