Perfectly Pink Confessions

While I love sharing my inspirations, goals, dreams, and random musings with you lovelies. I don't usually write much about reallllly personal stuff about me. I feel like fitness and weight loss is going to be a common reoccurrence on my blog. Let me start by saying that I have always struggled with my weight, probably not as bad as I am now but it's always been a constant struggle. I have never been comfortable in my own skin, even though at times I act like I am. Don't get me wrong I am a confident young woman or rather I have learned to be confident, but I live in a world that sees my weight as a liability and quite honestly a "choice". I was never the popular girl in my class and other kids made fun of me. In high school it even went as far as a guy letting me believe my crush liked me, to get a kick out it and laugh at me.  During P.E. I was always the slow girl and when I tried to be on a sports team my coaches never took a second look at me. I don't want you guys to feel sorry for me because this has made made me a stronger and better person, but I do however want you guys to know my story. While I don't think that I have helped my weight I also don't believe it's been a choice. I would never have chosen to be made fun of, to feel at times like I don't belong, and sometimes feel like just RUNNING away. So as I said I've struggled.... and up until now I have never tried(at least for very long) to change the struggle. Until a couple of months ago, my Fiance and I decided to embark on a journey to try to be healthier. Our grocery carts went from having cheetos, doritos, cokes, and candy to having vegetables, fruit, whole wheat, sugar-free puddings, and chicken( that wasn't breaded(mind blown). Believe me it was quite a change!! For the first time in a very long time I was actually motivated. So I want to share with you guys my daily/weekly struggles as I enter into this new chapter in my life where I lose weight, get fit, and live a healthier lifestyle. I know it will not be easy and at times I may even feel like quitting but I will make a promise to myself that I will not give up and give it my all.

  1. Ana, I used to struggle with my weight as well. Well, it was a long time ago, but I definitely know how it feels. and I also know that if you're determined the way you sound you're, you'll get where you want - whether it's weight loss or any other goal you have. After every change you make you'll start seeing the results (even if they're tiny) and that will keep you moving. Small steps will get you very far over time, and I'm super excited for you cuz I know you'll get there!
