My name is Nicole and I am a woman on a mission. I am losing weight with the goal of feeling great again. I’ve read about other gals who are fat and confident. Well, I’m not one of them! I have a goal to lose 40–50 lbs. I was pretty good at dressing in a way to somewhat disguise how much weight I had gained (at least I thought) but I have put on more weight and it’s impossible to hide now. I hate shopping at my current weight. I have so many black and gray tops because I have convinced myself that if I wear dark colors on the biggest part of my body then nobody will notice that I’m overweight. It’s so boring to wear dark colors every day! I can’t wait for shopping to be fun again. Overall, I am really happy. I am blessed with a great husband and three awesome kids. It’s just time that I lose this weight and reconnect with myself again.
