“She’s pretty for a Fat girl.”

I’ll never forget over hearing one of the guys after school talking about me. When I heard the words uttered “Krystal’s cool, she’s pretty for a fat girl…”, That was one of the most hardest things I ever heard behind my back. But in high school… rejection and low self esteem is what I grew accustomed to. The picture I have posted above is me at age 19 in my freshman year of college. I pushed myself to feel pretty, even while weighing in at 289…. I had to keep telling myself I’m more than what meets the eye. Fast forward to 2019, here I am at 34 years young, and I’ve finally had enough of the yo-yo diets and weight battles from year to year. In the last 3 years I watched my Aunt pass away and my parents go through life altering health scares. I even watched my big sis have her 6th child naturally and her body still looks incredible. I just want to be healthier. I have absolutely no excuse. At 34… I look like I have had kids..and I have none, which is not cool lol. So…enough is enough. I started a workout journey back and September… and before the end of 2019.. a transformation will take place. I have been in transition in many aspects of my life this year. But I feel like this battle in particular is the reason I’ve had fears with starting new ventures. I feel like when you are confident in your skin, you start taking more risks. I was strong enough to leave my comforts of my family back home, I was strong enough to free myself from a toxic relationship, so why shouldn’t I be strong enough to be a healthy weight? I work hard an all areas in my life, but this particular battle will take more than just a 5 day work out plan. This battle will take strategy, preparation, prayer and consistency. This will be the best birthday gift I’ve ever given myself. So, to those of you who have been encouraging me along the way, to those who have challenged me… and for those who want to do this with me… just know it’s never too late to start. Life is too short, so its time to live life to the fullest with healthy choices. I’m doing this for me, my family, and for my future. So if you are reading this, and you are tired of your lifestyle, get up and decide to do something about it! No one can do this for you… so with that… starting today, I am saying good bye to the pretty fat girl, and getting ready to say hello to a healthier version of me. It’s not about being a size 0.. it’s more about me respecting the process and creating a lifestyle change to reach my healthy goals. So, if you are with me.. let’s get it. The choice is yours, like I always say….. choose wisely. #2019finishstrong #bepatient #beBrave #pushthrough #workhardplayhard #fitandfine #bringsexyback #curvychic #healthychoices
