Loving myself

Tricia_Marie

311 views

Weight loss has always been one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do. I have always been a big girl, and in my younger years I just accepted that I was bigger and that nothing was going to change.

 

Now that I only have forty-two pounds until my goal of 130, I find myself falling in love with myself. I feel absolutely beautiful and that is something that I have never experienced.

 

The one piece of advice that I can offer someone just starting out on Jenny, is to give the program a chance. I know that there are foods that you're not going to like or want to eat; just go in with an open mind. There are ways to add to your food (seasoning, spices and veggies) that will allow you to stay on plan while trying new things.

 

The next one is cost, yes it can be pricey, but in the end how can you put a value on your life? Looking back now, I would pay it all again, this way that I feel is priceless and I only hope that everyone that has started this journey feels it as well. For me, this journey has been about taking control of my life and my choices; for so long I was controlled by food and winning this membership gave me an advantage as well as the opportunity to take my life back.

 

I am no longer an obese 278.4 pound woman and I will never be her again. My name is Tricia Marie Hensley, I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, student, business woman. There are many words that can be used to describe who I am, but that do not define me.

 

If I can hope for anything, it is that my words are able to help someone that is struggling on this journey. Everyone's journey is going to be different, but this forum has shown me that with a little support you can go a long way.

 

Love who you are, you are worth it. You have taken the first step! You've got this, we've got this!
