So here I am...being bold and putting myself out there for the first time. I've always had a hard time with the way that I view myself...even when I really had no reason to think it, I've always thought that I was "big". Now, I know that I am and I am serious about changing it. For my kids, my husband, and more importantly, myself. So begins my journey!

You've overcome one heck of an obstacle when you made yourself post your pics. You are going to so love the fact you have them once you see some more progress, just wait a few months and see.

You're a beautiful girl and now you have taken off the shackles!

Thank you all!

I'm not really seeing much of a change without much on for clothing...but I'm loving how my clothes are fitting and I'm starting to feel like I actually look okay in some of my clothes...that's HUGE for me!
