34, Saskatoon, CA
Hi, I'm Laura! Close friends and family also know me as La or Lola. I can be shy and quiet at times but I also love to be around friends and try new things. As much as I love being around people and experiencing life, there are times when I feel overloaded and require some alone time at home to recharge before getting back out there.
I have recently discovered a love for dancing and have started taking beginner Salsa dance classes - it's a lot of fun! I was introduced to it this summer by a friend and it just goes to show how stepping out of one's comfort zone can be really rewarding.
I have never been in a relationship before. Yes, you read that right. I'm almost 34 and I have been single literally forever. Since I have been overweight for all of my adult life, I have built walls and held myself back and I didn't trust or believe that a guy would want me or be attracted to me when I didn't even like myself. 2016 has been a year of growth and change as I have finally started to lose weight and get healthy. I don't believe that someone has to be thin in order to be loved but I do think that we need to be able to love ourselves and I couldn't do that when I was always feeling gross and awful and sick and tired because of an unhealthy lifestyle. My life has changed so much in 2016 and I give all the glory to God for putting things in place to help me finally succeed with my health goals this year. I still have a long way to go but I trust in Him and I know that I will get there.
So, while my confidence has been given a boost and I believe in myself more than I did before, I still struggle with putting myself out there and those moments of doubt still creep up. In those moments, I try to remind myself that I am a daughter of a wonderful and loving Father and I am worthy of love and one day, someone will take the time to get to know me and give me time to open up.
Last but not least, I have two cats and I love them immensely. Fun fact: they are toilet trained so no cleaning the litter box for me. :)
