So it is no secret that in the fashion world, looks tend to matter. I've known this from day one, but still people feel the need to remind me of it.
I'm not sure if any of you have heard, but there is a new MTV show called Chelsea Settles. MTV cameras follow around a young woman named Chelsea who is obese and trying to make it as a fashion stylist in LA. However no one takes her too seriously because of her weight. Now I don't watch this show religiously or anything, but catching it from time to time made me realize that I need to make some changes: my weight.
Growing up, I never liked the way I looked, at all. I hated my hair (natural), my skin color and especially my weight. I've done a lot of growing up since then and I have come to love myself, but I still know I need a lot of work, there is always room for improvement.
I've been talking about getting healthier ever since I entered high school and it has been a crazy roller coaster ride ever since. It was a lot easier the first few years because I played volleyball for the school and we trained year round, therefore, I had someone forcing me to watch what I ate and work out, and even though I wasn't the smallest girl on the team (I was actually probably the biggest) I was okay with that weight, at least I would be now.
I'm through playing games though, I have nothing better to do over break, but drive myself to the gym so I might as well start a routine and continue it when I get back to school. This weight is coming off and this time, it's for good.
I'll post updates and what not, mainly ones that have to do with the cute new clothes I'll be able to fit into and things like that, wish me luck!
