Hello everyone, welcome to a site that may change the way you eat, look and think! You should know that exercise and healthy eating has being a constant challenge to me. I was not one of those girls that got the ‘skinny’ genes. On the contrary, I have faced a battle with my weight since I was 12 years old. Just on the onset of adolescence a personal lost triggered an insatiable appetite that pushed me to want to eat my way out of it. Needless to say, there wasn’t enough food that could possible fulfill the emptiness in my life. That’s how my battle began and it’s been only through lots of discipline, determination and knowledge that I finally came to manage my weight.
Despite my best efforts, my mind belongs to an obese person who wants to eat everything in one sitting. Once I am tempted, I become like the alcoholic; that is, unable to stop eating in large amounts. Then to get back on track, I have to give myself a few days to ‘wind down or get clean’. Unfortunately, the gain of weight and the deformation of my body led to poor health that was only the external representations; what you could see on the outside. The truth is that the hate and disdain I felt towards myself, the rejection and blame sat constantly on my heart. I am not saying that every single, overweight person feels that way, but for those of you that share my personal experience, I want to assure you that there is hope; there is a chance to improve yourself. You can regain control of your life, feel happy and proud again. So please stay close and see how I did it!!! The only question I want to ask you… are you ready to let out the beautiful, wholesome and perfect you that lives within yourself?
Let’s face it: it’s a big, big Twitter-verse out there, filled with all the best and worst humanity has to offer. For many, the little blue bird and the service it represents are just further proof of the perversity of human nature—yes, even when restrained to 140 characters or less, people can be somehow spew novel’s worth of ignorance and pettiness. Yet amidst the cacophony and confusion, there persists plenty to love.
