My name is Miranda and I am 21 years old. Two weeks ago, I decided to make a change: mind and body.
After (what I considered) a self-esteem crushing relationship had ended, I found myself sleeping whenever I could. I wasn’t eating well or taking care of my body. I was sad and it showed in many aspects of my life.
It’s one year later and I have decided my time of feeling like the victim is over. I am in control of how I feel and how I look. I gained weight during the hard times and I am so ready to get rid of it, for good.
I have the perfect support system.
- My dad, who always listens to my crazy ideas. He tells me what I need to hear whether I want to or not. His constant "Do you really need that?" or "Shouldn’t you be working out?" really keep me in check.
- My mom, who is working through her own body overhaul and is always available for a word or two of encouragement.
- My AMAZING boyfriend, who loves me just the way I am. He puts up with me every day and always says "Definitely, baby!" when I ask, "Am I skinny yet??".
- I also have a few, solid friends who have been with me through it all... laughter, tears, and countless trips to Cold Stone.
So follow me on this journey : a normal girl, losing weight in normal ways. No crash diets and no 5 hour dates with the gym because let’s face it…ain’t nobody got time for that!
