Hi Beauty! My name is Cassie and I’m so glad to see you here! I created this blog to help you to feel comfortable in the skin you’re in and enjoy life while losing weight. I myself have struggled to lose weight my entire life. I’ve crash dieted, nearly starved myself, lost weight, gained weight, hated myself, worked out, and had a job where I sat on my butt all day and barely had a a chance to take 5 minutes to eat. My life has been a roller coaster where my weight is concerned. I finally decided to get off the diet roller coaster, live a healthy life, and love myself the way I am in the meantime.
I have struggled with health conditions as an adult that were a “mystery” to doctors, which has been extremely frustrating. I’ve been sent away time and again with no answers. Through my persistence I found that I had a bad gallbladder, interstitial cystitis, hypothyroidism, uterine fibroids, and adrenal fatigue. I have fought for my health for the last 14 years and never given up even when I wanted to. I believe all of these things contributed in some way, big or small, to my weight struggles.
On this blog I’ll share experiences I’ve learned from and obstacles I’ve encountered and how I overcame them. Being overweight takes a toll emotionally and physically. I really want to help you get past the things that are holding you back and become the best version of yourself.
This blog is for the ladies that struggle on the daily to balance a happy life and weight loss. To lose weight does not mean you have to give up everything you enjoy in life and become stick thin. It’s about making healthy choices and fitting them into your life as it is. It’s not about how fast you can get to the finish line. It’s about becoming the healthiest you possible while still living life the way you love to.
I’m still on my own weight loss and self-discovery journey. I hope I inspire you to love yourself, get healthy, be the best you and most importantly never give up on yourself!
Here’s my journey so far. I’ve lost 40 pounds but still have quite a ways to go.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
