Slightly chubby Irongirl

I’ve always struggled with weight.

I’ve weighed 210 pounds. That’s size 16.

I’m around a lot of skinny people.

I JUDGE MYSELF. HIGHLY CRITICAL.

I just might have an “I’m enough” issue deep down. Expressing itself as a body self esteem issue.

Seriously?

Two years ago I couldn’t run 1 mile without stopping 3 times and taking 17 minutes. I’m in the best shape of my life.

I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been. I’m gonna be an Ironman soon. That little belief is a BIG FAT LIAR.

I’M ENOUGH. All 156 pounds of me.
(maybe more than enough.  maybe super forkin’ fabulous!)

YOU ARE AWESOME!

Or use it for meal prep and have lunch all week at work! If you've never made rice noodles before, you soak them in water for a couple of hours, drain them and add to boiling water. They only take about a minute to boil.
