Big Girls Don't Wear Belts - A Diary of My Weight Loss Journey

Big Girls Don't Wear Belts. Join me on my journey to be able to tuck in my shirt and wear a belt!

Hi, I'm Carla and I am a big girl. I probably always have been, even when I looked pretty good or was thin, because in my head I was still a big girl. I want to share my journey with you.

I am putting myself out there for all of Bonney Lake to see, so be gentle, but I will be honest and genuine. Currently I can't divulge my weight. It's too painful, but I have already lost over 20 pounds doing Zumba at C&C Studio. As of today, I am 5 pounds under the weight that I was when I got pregnant with my 15 month old, but I have so much more to lose. I say that because, as much as I would love to blame her for my weight, it's not her fault. I've had horrible injuries, hormone imbalances and my love for food.

So, come get to know me! I'm a little crazy, goofy and sarcastic. I love to garden, coupon, socialize and enjoy those I love. But most of all join me on my journey to be able to tuck my shirt in proudly and wear a belt!

Wow! Thank you so much, everyone! I didn't expect to see any comments on here, let alone such inspiring ones! You all made my day and I will Zumba for Cinco de Mayo instead of eat all-you-can-eat tacos! I want to be a role model and thank you for making that possible. Because of all of you, I will try to blog more frequently... once I get the killer virus off my good comupter and I'm not stuck with this dinosaur!

Such an inspiring story Carla, thanks for sharing it. I love the humor in your writing! I also go to CCZumba and can completely relate to the jiggling long after the music stops! :) Keep up the amazing work and I look forward to following your journey here.
