Here goes nothing

Hey every one. Names Felicia 🙂 I’m a 25 year old single mom to a beautiful four year old. I’m far from perfect and once you get to know me through my posts, you’ll quickly learn that. About seven months ago, I took a good long look in the mirror and hated what I saw. I was no longer that 18 year old twig I once was, rather a 24 year old with stretch marks and a gut. I was so disgusted. I had never realized just how much I had let myself go. I felt like crap, and it showed. I made a decision, right then and there as I was crying in my closet trying to get the only pair of jeans that kind of fit on. I vowed from that point on, I was changing. I was sick of hating myself. Sick of crying. Sick of hiding under big jackets. Sick of feeling unhealthy. I vowed that nothing was stopping me this time. That next day I went to the leasing office of my apartments and got a gym key. Little did I know that it would be the start of a beautiful relationship. I always used excuses why I couldn’t. I have a bad back, I had no time, I didn’t have workout clothes. But then I would think of my grandmother and how I lost her at a young age from heart disease. I wanted to be healthy if not just for myself, but for my kids and grandkids. The first three weeks were brutal. I almost quit every day, but I forced myself to get dressed and go. Slowly I noticed the workouts get easier and easier. I could add more and more weights. Today I am here, seven months later and over 30lbs lighter. I feel good. I feel healthy. I feel confident in my own skin. I haven’t felt like this ever. My hopes is that even if I only encourage one person to live a healthier life, that’s one more that can go out and encourage others too. Like I said before, I am not perfect. Nor do I pretend to be. So this blog serves as my outlet, and to show others that you don’t have to be perfect to be healthy and happy. I hope I touch someone’s life and can lead you to be the best version of you that you can be
