You see, you look at me and you don't want me in your gym full of "hot bodies". In your eyes, I'm not even a "hot mess", I'm just a mess. You see a nearly obese, middle aged, soccer mom scraping together the quarters out of the washing machine to put together a Gym membership because she wants to get back the body she lost all those years ago to marriage and childbirth. But that's where you're wrong.
Your eyes may see those things, but inside I'm my own hero. I am a wife, a mother, a kidney donor, an activist, a friend, daughter, and more. I am a champion. I am a STRONG, BEAUTIFUL, REAL SPIRITUAL WOMAN WHO IS TRUSTING IN AND LOVED BY GOD. I am a woman who is determined to get healthy, to not get diabetes, to be around for a whole lot longer. I am a champion.
I am the woman who is going to make you eat your judgements and turn your head. Just sayin'.
P.S. If you're in the area of Azle/Springtown, TX and are looking for a gym, check out The GEM on Highway 199. They have a place for you with a great staff who takes the time to get to know you, knows your name, and helps you out however they can. They have great family plans and affordable rates. I am so happy they are here.
P.P.S. The GEM has no idea I even mentioned them in this story.
