I was 23 years old and wasting my life away, and at nearly 200 lbs I didn’t even recognise my own reflection. The last five years were spent drinking every weekend, eating anything I could get my hands on and spending every evening locked in my room playing the Xbox. I tried to figure out what had happened to me. I blamed everything on everyone else until I realized only I could change my life! I decided to write a list of the things to do to get myself out of this rut.
Leaving school at 15 due to bullies my confidence was low and so were my grades
Later, I felt like wasting my life away, and at nearly 200 lbs I didn’t even recognise my own reflection
I blamed everything on everyone else until I realized only I could change my life
I stopped drinking, ran my first 5k, climbed hills
I left a job I hated, finally gained some qualifications
The more I got out the more energy I had
Through all of this I had lost 45lbs!
I moved in with my boyfriend who became my husband
I was finally happy again!
I still have so many life experiences, and bucket list items to cross off
These are the things that changed me for the happy person I am today
