this march i was on the beach in california looking like this
putting these pictures side by side is a little painful. and to say i miss looking like this in a swim suit is an understatement:
i miss that body every day, and it makes me so sad to accept that it's gone. but i'm working every day to CHOOSE not to be sad. life overall is better now. i laugh with friends, i'm making memories with loved ones, and dating is fun. if i want to graduate college, move out, get married, have babies, and keep developing new relationships, i've got to be healthy. and that's why i'm working my booty off every day.
