Here we go…

Like the title says, here we go….Lol i couldn’t find an about me section so i guess this will be it for now. 🙂 I am new to this whole blogging thing so forgive while I work out the kinks. 😉

My name is Candace, I am in my early 30’s, but have always been told I look younger. Lol Thank Goodness! I have this fear of getting older so that’s awesome.  🙂 I am just a normal person.  I love God and am so thankful he has been with me and given me so much courage and strength to get through the last few months. I am even thankful for the trials he has put me through because he is making me a better person through them.

I have always been overweight. Ok extremely overweight. That is hard to admit because of the embarrassment but its true and you can’t hide it so there it is. I’m not comfortable enough to say what my starting weight is but I will say I have a long way to go. I actually started my journey about Early 2013. I lost a bit of weight but I was never super serious about it. Things happened last year and I got comfortable.  Needless to say I gained the weight back. I got serious and motivated mid December after 1 of Gods trials. That was it. I was done. I wanted to focus my life on God and getting healthy. I never thought my weight bothered me. I always thought “if you don’t like me, don’t look at me.” If I really thought about it and prayed about it, I could see that I was letting my weight hold me back. It made me bitter and angry. I needed a way out. A new way to live.

And here we are. I am writing this blog as a way to motivate myself and hopefully by sharing my journey and faith i will help others. I hope this helps myself and eveyone else to be and stay inspired and to work and pray hard for what you want.

We got this!!!
