So, I got an award...please hold the applause! It did come from one of my very most favorite bloggers...Jamie at Running Diva Mom! (She is the very first blog I started following, and one of my favorites to stalk!)
So, this is how the award works:
#1. Answer this question: If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?
#2. The second thing you have to do is, pick 6 people and give them this award. You then have to inform the person that they have gotten this award.
#3. The third and final thing is, thank the person who gave you the award.
1. I would have been more self confident about myself when I was younger. I have always be self conscious about my weight from a very young age. I remember doing Weight Watchers with my mom when I was in grade school/high school. I have always dieted, and have always had to watch what I eat. I was always very active in high school, playing both basketball and softball, but I never felt happy with myself.
In college I gained some weight freshman year, but by junior year I had lost A LOT of weight. I did start working out a lot, which was good, but I wasn't being healthy about my eating (a lot of times not eating) I still was not completely happy with myself. I think I pushed a lot of people away because of my attitude about myself.
To this day I still struggle with all of my body issues and concerns, but I do know that I am living a healthier lifestyle. I think I will always have to watch what I eat, work out and be conscious of these things, but I do think I am beginning to accept myself more, and realizing that no matter what I am a good person, and an awesome mommy and wife! I will still strive to be skinner and more fit, but I am going to be happier in the process!
