I’m a petite girl and I’ve never really had trouble maintaining my weight. In junior high I was a size double zero and in high school I was a zero. (keep in mind I am only 5ft.) A few years ago I started living an extremely unhealthy lifestyle. And as a result I ended up 20 and underweight. Yuck! skin and bones. Anyway, I got it together, started working full time, eating a little better and sleeping the average amount. Naturally my body responded by packing on a few pounds. They were healthy pounds but it’s taken me almost three years to realize that. I finally went to the doctor for my first physical as an adult. We did tons of testing and she said my body mass index is exactly where it should be. That's the reason I've been having trouble losing wieght. My BMI is telling my body it’s already perfect. My initial reaction was... “Ugh!” haha Seriously, I said that to my doctor. But I quickly changed my attitude. I’m blessed to be in good health. Not many people can eat an entire box of Twinkies without gaining a pound (7th grade). So even though I am a bit heavier than my jr. high days, it’s nothing a little exercise can’t tone.
For now I will focus on loving me for ME. :) because it makes all the difference in the world. ♥
