The people you include in your life are just as important as the way you live your life.
“skinny” is not the goal. The goal is to look the way that makes YOU feel good and to show yourself and all your doubters that you can do anything you put your mind to.
YOU are worth it. Do not give up, this journey may be hard, but it is worth it. Fight every negative thought, every moment of doubt and just do it.
Congratulate yourself everyday for the obstacles you have overcome. Whether its because you lost 5 pounds, or .2 pounds, You are changing your life for the better everyday, and that is something to be celebrated.
