All my life as far back as I can remember, I have been struggling with my weight, I was a chubby marshmallow baby to begin with and slowly through years of growing up around scrumptious Filipino food and an unfortunate slow metabolism rate, I have ended up in a place that made me feel so body conscious and depressed with my image that it would take me hours to get myself ready and perfect every little thing I was wearing (including makeup) to make me feel at least half decent to even step out of the house. I would also have had to psyche myself up to step out the door quickly before I end up psyching myself out of even going out anymore... you could say I became afraid to go out in public; my anxiety was off the wall. I had struggled through countless yo yo diets and extreme workouts that would always end up to square one once again.. I would feel happy one day and depressed and angry the next. My emotions were everywhere and I felt I could never achieve "the perfect body."
I needed an ongoing motivation that would push me to no limits...
My Motivation Angel
"I need to be there when she runs out onto the street, I need to be there when she runs into the kitchen, I need to be there when she runs around the park. I need to be fit not only to improve my health but also to be there throughout my child's life and teach her the benefits of living a healthy and positive lifestyle."
My journey begins here..... 2014
