My dear butterflyeffect yes you will be the same person if you don't change the things about yourself you don't like. But on the other hand you will know that you can achieve healthy goals. And not being overweight is healthy!
Being the best version of yourself at any given moment is the only thing you can reach and that is a lot! People will like you when you like who you are. Very simple and oh so true. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!
My youngest daughter took of 50 pounds in 1 year. She came back from the US like a huge person but now she is shining like never before. And she is so proud of herself and satisfied with the fact that she did accomplish this. She is 20 today. Now she likes herself. She is not skinny but a nice slim figure. You can be too!
