Hello tumblies, and good morning! Before I do anything today, I just wanted to go online and tell you guys how thankful I am for you!
For those of you who don’t know, and just started following me, I have been on this journey to healthy living for quite a while. I have tried every diet in the book, I have gone up and down in my weight, and everything else you can think of! I have finally come to a place where I have a good relationship with food, and that’s where this blog comes in!
All through my years of “disordered eating” and body image issues, the only thing I ever wanted was an example of a healthy, in-shape girl, who had a good relationship with food, enjoyed eating healthy without having to count all her calories, who loved herself, and who didn’t beat herself up when she had a treat (or two). That is why when I finally came to a place where I felt like I really was happy with myself, I wanted to share my experience with as many girls (and guys) as I could reach. Keep in mind, I didn’t get to this place because I was at my “smallest weight,” I got to this place because I was eating healthy foods, enjoying them, loving exercise, telling myself all the good qualities about I hold, meeting with friends, sharing my experiences, making plans, getting out and being productive; I was doing all the things that made me feel good and accomplished; I did/do everything that makes me feel like I’m on the up-&-up. Never before in my life had I felt so proactive about life, so appreciative for things I have, and so filled with joy. This was just something that had to be shared.

Anyways, I just wanted to write you all and let you know how thankful I am for all of you who are spreading the word of this blog. I cannot tell you how much that means to me. As long as I am reaching all of the girls (and boys) who I am supposed to reach, I am happy- and I know that whoever is supposed to see this blog, eventually will. I am just thrilled that you guys care so much, to actually be excited about the blog, and want to share it with your friends, teachers, classmates, co-workers, family, etc (I’ve heard all kinds of things). Put yourself in my shoes for one second, and feel how excited I must be, that this little thought that I had one day, has turned into something where I really am able to reach out to people who are just like me, or maybe just have a thing or two in common. It’s the greatest feeling, and I own all of my thanks to every one of you who support me. 🙂
