30 Days of Truth: Day 29

Day 29: Something you hope to change about yourself, and why.

I don't mean to sound like I'm conceited, but honestly overall I am pleased with myself. It has been a difficult journey getting to where I am now, but it's definitely worth it.

With that being said there are two things I'd like to change.
1. I'd like to see clear skin when I look in the mirror every day.
2. I'd like to lose about 20 lbs within a year.

I want to change the first one because it really sucks being 23 and having acne problems. Since I have fairly good skin otherwise, I never learned how to put on makeup properly so I can't really cover it up that way. And I'm tired of getting new scars on my face from it.

I'd like to lose the weight because I feel that the weight it would put me at would just be a healthier option for me. If I only drop 10 pounds, well that still puts me at something a little more healthy than where I am now. My overall goal is to have a long, happy, healthy life, and being heavier than I should be would prevent me from being able to do that.

I honestly think that once I graduate from college and get into a healthier lifestyle that the weight won't be an issue. I know the things I'm doing wrong now, but it's super difficult to change when I have the 500 thousand stressors from being a student. Only 91 days!


  1. You don't sound conceited, only confident, and that is a great thing :)
    As for the clear skin, I am so with you right now on that one. The last few weeks has been the worst my face has ever looked. I think I am hitting puberty in my late 20s, ahhhh!
    Only 91 more days, that will FLY by!

  2. I still have some random acne issues too! They get on my nerves so bad! When my wedding dress came in and I tried it on, it fit perfect! (other than length) If I can stay exactly the same, weight and size wise, I will not have to alter as much. So... I'm working everyday to stay the same! Agh!!

  3. the weight and acne been a booger to me as well! i'm 30 and still get break outs from the monthly friend...who's not really a friend...more like a nuisance. i wish i could slim down but once i start doing good, something bites me in the mother natures best gift! i hate hits me hard too! i wish you all the best and know you will live a long and happy, healthy life....i have esp, you know~! xoxo

  4. I agree- nothing wrong with feeling good (or great) about yourself!

    And from experience, its way easier to be healthy and take care of yourself after college. It takes almost no effort, actually, to be honest!

    Hang in there!

  5. I think it is amazing and inspiring that you are overall happy with yourself- if all girls felt like you this world would be a much better place because we could be less concerned with ourselves and more concerned with others:-) Good luck with your goals!
