It’s almost been a year since I’ve had an epiphany to want to lose weight. I no longer wanted to live a life where I put a smile for everyone when deep down inside I loathed myself everyday. It just wasn’t the life I wanted to live. Especially being constantly being picked on because of my weight didn’t make it any easier. When I did try to reach for help the only question people would ask me was “What would truly make you happy?” and I said “All honesty, if I was skinny.” I’m not saying being chubby or fat is a shameful thing because it isn’t. I have seen so many beautiful women in every shape and size and what made them more beautiful was them embracing it. But my whole life I have been heavy and have never comfortable in my own skin till I saw myself losing weight and honestly, I knew I was finally on my path to find happiness. It feels like its the body I’m meant to be in. I didn’t start losing weight till April/May. My heaviest was 235 and size 16. Now I’m 214 size 13 :) I’m just turned 18 and my goal is be 235-240. The reason for this weight goal because yes I do want to lose weight but I sure as hell don’t want to lose the amazing curves my genes has got to offer :) This journey has probably been the hardest challenge I have ever faced because I LOVE food and I’m a big binger but it took me almost a year to change not this diet but a life style because I look at diets just temporily and just because you want to lose the weight. But I’m doing not only to be fit but to be healthy because my brother is known to have diabetes and I was at risk of diabetes and that scares the crap out of me. My weight loss may not have been a huge change but it’s a start and I’m okay with it because it’s months of impatience with discouragement and binging to depress to feeling confident… it’s just been a roller coaster and I’m not getting out of it till I’m satisfied with the long ride. I will be blogging my daily meals, exercise and what goes on in the life of a girl going through this journey. Hopefully this will keep on track because I’ve tried everything and nothing has been working and I hope this does. I want to share with you it’s not just looking good it’s finding myself and what goes on the other side of the not the hill but the mountain. Hopefully on this journey people can learn that everyone has a different mission in their lives at different times whether young or old. I barely found one of my missions now :)
can you guys literally take not even two seconds out of your day to reblog this. My sister and her best friend have been missing. Even if you don’t live in the Cape Coral/ Ft Myers area, anything will help.
Rule 1: IF TUMBLR’S CREATOR COMES UP ON YOUR DASH, YOU MUST REBLOG
This is my friend and her girlfriend. The girl on the right was killed last night, by what is thought to be a hate crime. They were on a date. They were both shot and dumped in tall grass. They were found this morning by a couple while they were out for a walk. (This is all we know right now)
Mollie has passed but her girlfriend, Kristene, is still alive. She is in very critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head. Please pray for her. Think about them. Pass this on. Something. Please. We need her to come through so the people that did this can be put in their rightful spot.
You will always be Loved and never forgotten, Mollie.
Rest in Peace, Sweetheart.<3

Too Pretty To Eat (by Will Merydith)
i feel like if i eat this, my teeth will be the color of the rainbow >.< which makes me crave it more ^.^
STUDENTS MAKE BUS MONITOR CRY!!!
Four students in a middle school in my town made a video harassing their school bus monitor. In this ten minute video, they verbally abuse her over and over again, saying things as terrible as “I hope your kids kill themselves so they don’t have to be around you” and they were gonna “stab her in the stomach”. Her son committed suicide ten years ago. The police are handling the undetermined consequences for the children who were harassing her. It has already been on the local news and the video currently has over 280,000 views on Youtube, and over $40,000 has been raised for her to go on vacation, she only makes $15,506 a year. 1,300 emails have been sent to the school district regarding this. A local radio guy in my town tweeted Ellen the video. We want this to go viral and for those kids to be humiliated. She has also been interviewed on the news, aswell as a parent of one of the kids. If you want to send her a sweet message, her name is Karen Huff Klein.
Here is the link to her Facebook page:
Here is the link to the tweet we want to get to Ellen:
Here is the fundraiser to give her a vacation if you want to donate! You can donate as little or as much as you want:
On the link above, there are links to the staff emails including the principal of the school, links to the other videos, links to the schools website, information on the bus number, and the school’s fax number.
WE WANT TO GET THIS ON ELLEN OR ON NATIONAL NEWS! HELP OUT KAREN KLEIN! TEAM KAREN!
I literally couldn’t watch more than one minute of this video. I’m crying so hard right now how is it possible for children to be so fucking cruel. I’m sick to my stomach.
I couldn’t watch but I 100 percent support this. If my son ever, I swear ever. I would just never let him hang out with friends till the end of time , take him out of public school and completely just throw him out in the garbage.
but my son won’t cause I will teach him better!
This was middle school for me. I hope you get that vacation, Karen!
