My name is Briana. I am 22 years old. I have always struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember since I was very young. Although the hateful things that were said to me in my early school years would bother me I just accepted that it was the way god made me. As I began getting older I would still just feel sorry for myself and be jealous that I could not be smaller but would never do anything about it! When I finally started trying different methods to loose weight I would do good and then just fall off the wagon and end up gaining the weight I lost back. But February 1, 2014, I made a commitment to myself that it was time for a permanent change. This time around I have a complete different mindset and it feels so much different than any time before. I have accepted the fact that I am not always perfect nor will I ever be, I will have mishaps here and there, BUT I will make a difference in my life. It not only affects the body that I must treasure because I only get one, but living a healthy lifestyle has affected my entire attitude towards life and made me such a more happier person. This is something I life by everyday: “You will have good days and you will have bad days. But, just always let the good out weigh the bad.” To me this basically means I’m not perfect and I do have days where I do not do well, but I pick myself back up and have many more great days to follow. This balances this lifestyle that I WILL live for not only myself but my entire life ahead of me. Feel free to follow my blog and read about my daily journey throughout this lifestyle!
