I'm not exactly sure why, but for a long time I have denied who I really am. Whether from fear or shame or guilt, I have hidden who I really am. I'm 30 years old, and just discovering that. So who am I?

The Good:

I am passionate, and determined. And yes, I AM DISCIPLINED! Why did I not know that before? Why have I told myself all these years that I wasn't disciplined enough to stay on track and lose weight? I am beautiful. Incredibly beautiful. Beautiful in ways that are entirely unique to me. I have a beauty that cannot be hidden, and that no one can take away from me. I am intelligent, and creative. And I am deeply and unconditionally loved!

The Not-So-Good:

I am an emotional eater. I denied that for many, many years. I'm struggling with my self worth and value. Up to this point in my life, I didn't believe I had any. Now, I'm fighting to break free from that lie and truly discover that I am worthy and have value. This is probably my biggest obstacle, and it feeds the emotional eating.

My Hope:

I am hoping that through this journey, I will discover more and more of myself. I feel like I have only been living a small part of who I really am. I am excited and nervous to uncover who I was really created to be, and to see all the limitless potential that creates.

    Hey There Neighbor!
    I was going through my old blogs and saw the post of our picture when we met at Jason's Deli for lunch. Thought I'd come by and say hi.
    Can't tell if you're still active on SP. I'm rejoining BLC for round 23. It starts on the 25th. Just a few spaces left I think. If you are interested let me know and I'll send you an invite. The forest green pixies are no longer playing in the forest but I keep in touch with Paulette so I'm hoping to get on the team she's on. Wendy is back after taking a round off and I saw Dawn and Debbie as captains on anther team. I know there are others out there as well.
    Hope you are doing well and have been running in all those races!
    I did the Tinkerbell half at Disneyland in January but haven't been running otherwise.
    Thinking of you,

    Gosh...it was good to see a status update from you! I was beginning to worry that something was wrong since you disappeared for a while! We sure miss you in the Forest this round!

    Lori's words of wisdom from yesterday.

    "Every single decision you make about what you eat and how you move makes a difference, Pixies--both on the scale, and in your attitude. Make your next decision the RIGHT one."

    I hope you're staying on the healthy path!
