CLOSED-I’m 2x Stronger Like Angel Soft! & A #AngelSoft #Giveaway

Angel Soft Profile Picture

Hey All!

I recently learned I am 30 pounds over weight and almost 40% body fat. I know…I’m not healthy. It’s not something I like to admit or tell anyone. When I first found out, I was really depressed about it. I think I was in denial about my weight. I eat mainly because of stress and this is the heaviest I’ve ever been in my entire life! It all has to do with the stress of working, going to school at night, planning our wedding, trying to keep the family together, and doing this blog. It’s a lot to handle and I admit I have not been handling it well. I could eat and wallow and continue to blame this and that for my weight or I could do something about it.

I got off my butt and started working out again. I knew I needed to put me first for a change and I’m already noticing a difference. I already feel 2x stronger!


I recruited a friend to help me work out as she runs marathons and is all about the fitness.  She has me doing all kinds of exercises when we’re together.


I know I’m on the right path to becoming a better me health wise. I also made myself an amazing planner to manage my work and blogging better so I’m less stressed.


I’m in love with my planner and it’s making me so much happier and less stressed since I’m keeping myself organized.

  1. Sandy VanHoey says

    Being with my grandson and getting him ready for school, pickin him up and just caring for him makes me feel 2x stronger (sometimes he can make me a bit weaker…haha)

  2. says

    I personally was in a very abusive relationship for 11 years. I am a very strong person but somehow I was trapped. I finally was able to break free and now I can call him my EX. But somehow all that made me so strong, and free willed smarter to know what real love could be. Now I have found a soulmate that will treat me and love me as I deserve.

  3. Sandy says

    Watching someones battle with cancer made me realize I need to take control of my health with diet and exercise

  4. KATIE KLEIN says

    Being in the Warrior Dash last year made me stronger! I never thought I could accomplish something like that and it felt awesome :)

  5. Eloise C says

    Watching my Mom live with Diabetes for many years of my life and then eventually passing away from it has made me 2x stronger. She never took care of herself and that’s why the disease claimed her life but I learned from it and am getting healthier so that my children do not have to go through the same thing. Thanks so much for hosting this great giveaway!


  6. valerie says

    a breakup after 5 years was the hardest thing to go through. then to find out he left me to marry someone else and move her in the one house we lived in for so long was even worse. I think that’s one of the things that has made me 2xs stronger.

  7. Sheila K. says

    Helping the police capture a criminal the newspapers called “the worst serial rapist the South has ever known” made me 2X stronger … and so proud!

  8. Katie Roch says

  9. Angelique Drummond says

    Starting on my weight loss journey and losing weight really helped me feel stronger, and realizing I CAN achieve something when I set my mind to it.

  10. krystal wethington says

    when i was 17 and my mom had a stroke so i had to learn to cook and do had to quit school to help take care of her.Thanks for this giveaway.

  11. Diane @ Me, Him And The Cats says

    When I was 12 my father was diagnosed with Esophageal cancer and was only given a few months to live. My parents opted for a new experimental treatment to try to save his life. While the surgery didn’t work as planned, It did save his life. He was in the ICU for over 6 months and since i wasn’t 14 I wasn’t allowed to see him – Although his doctors snuck me in on a few ocassions

  12. mary renshaw says

    My fiance and daughers father walked out when I was 10 weeks pregnant. He decided he didn’t want to have children. My daughter will be 13 this and is doing amazing!!!!!!

  13. Peggy D says

    dealing with everyday ups and downs has made me 2x stronger….money issues, work issues, children, and household you just have to move on


  14. kim says

    I have had 10 surgeries in the past 2 1/2 yrs and all because of a Dr’s mistake there have been many ups and lots more downs but I believe that this has made me a stronger person

  15. Carly B. says

    Living on my own at age 18 4 hours from my helped me grow up a lot and taught me a lot!

  16. Gail Bradford says

    I used to allow a family member I was close to critisize me over everything I did. It could be the smallest thing. When I left from being around her I felt utterly deflated and questioned everything I’d done around her. So during the last little nit pick session I told her to keep her opinions to herself. I’ve not spoken to her in over a month. Yes some people might think that’s a bit extreme. But in this last month I’ve learned that I don’t need anyone’s opinions to define who I am.

  17. Robyn H says

    When I spent almost a month with my friend while he lived in the hospital… he was a heart transplant patient. I watched everything he went through, I saw the other children there… the families waiting and praying for the organ donations that would save their loved ones lives. My friend checked himself out of the hospital shortly after they told him he would have to have a second transplant… two days later I held him as he died of heart failure. I was in my early twenties, still young when death didn’t cross my mind much. I learned not to take anything for granted, to cherish the moments I have with my loved ones and to try to live my life to the fullest. Sometimes I forget, I get caught up in every day stresses and worries and craziness but then I remember and I step away from all the stress and remember what is most important and I remember to enjoy every moment I have with my family, especially my daughter. I didn’t realize it then because it was such a tragic event to handle but it made me a stronger person.

  18. Bo says

    My mother had cancer when I was 10. I was so scared that I was going to lose her. Thankfully she made it through but that experience definitely made me stronger.

  19. Annmarie W. says

    A couple of times now my hubby has taken a job in a new city, and I’ve stayed behind for a couple of months with the kids to sell the old house, wait until their school break, etc. Getting everything ready for the move, and the house ready to sell, and taking all child responsibilities on myself (I give so much respect to single parents!) has made me 2x stronger!

  20. Hannah says

    An experience that made me 2x stronger was losing two of my siblings to severe Down Syndrome. Taught me to appreciate life and people a lot more than I do right now.

  21. Anne says

    Being my mother’s caregiver during the last years of her life made me realize that I’m at least 2x stronger than I ever thought I could be. When someone you love needs you, you just do everything you can for them.

  22. LOIS PAYTON says

    livig after gramma knift to the brain and losing the se of my right arm and having to walk with a brace on my right leg, has made me stronger, GOD BLESS YA’LL

  23. Shannon says

    Thank you so much for sharing ur experience! I’m also 30 over weight and I have always been in great shape but somehow this last year or two I put on a lot! My kids make me strong bc I want to set a good healthy example for them. I’ve been hitting the gym 4 days a week! Good luck to you!

  24. Monet says

    Having my daughter naturally made me 2x stronger. I knew that if I could get through that, I could get through anything!

  25. Annette Rosenberg says

    There’s been a few things over the years, but I think the biggest was my daughter’s birth.

  26. Sarah L says

    10 years ago I was diagnosed with RA and I’ve learned to be strong and deal with it.

  27. Kelly McGrew says

  28. Crystal F says

    Hearing my daughter may have leukemia. Thank God she didn’t but it changes you. You realize you have to be strong and be there for your children and the rest of your family. Thank you!

  29. Lisa says

    Even though I was bullied throughout school and dropped out because of it I got my GED. I also learned empathy and compassion for others in a way I wouldn’t have been able to without going through. Adversities in our lives not only make our hearts grow but helps us to comfort others in pain.

  30. says

    My experience would be leaving home at 15 years old to fend for myself. I was still able to attend school and graduated with honors, all while working in a kitchen from 3:00 to 8:00 every night to make ends meet, pay the rent, etc.

  31. Dwayne Berry says

    When I had to body slam my father in law to keep him from hurting my wife… I felt horrible about the whole situation, but it made me confident that I could handle myself when I needed to.

  32. Alycia says

    Losing my dad when I was 19. I had to stay home from college for a bit to help my mother and sister out for a while. Made me a totally different, better, person.

  33. Valerie Taylor Mabrey says

    I miscarried twice before i had my children and it made me a stringer mom

  35. Lisa Miskella says

    Finding out I had cancer a few months back and my 11 year old daughter and 13 year old son giving me the courage to fight made me way stronger!

  36. susan glazer says

    taking care of my husband who was dying of cancer made me stronger….stronger for him and my daughter!

  37. Anna Memphis says

    Surviving the PhD app season. Seriously, nothing like 7 out of 8 schools telling you that ‘you’re just not good enough.’ If you can survive that assault on your ego, you can stand up to most anything thereafter.

  38. Lucy Schwartz says

    Receiving a diagnosis of cancer and taking stock of my life and finding what was really important to me.

  39. Kathleen S. says

    I completed my first half marathon last February. It definitely made me stronger knowing I could accomplish that!

  40. erik says

    My mom having a stroke made me a stronger person. I now realize how precious health is and take care of myself much better

  41. Bobby Tarumi says

    I made it through a recent relapse of health problems last year. It was so bad that I had to quit my job (and live off of savings/401k) and drop out of my part-time schooling. Making a comeback made me “2x stronger”. I started my own business as part of the healing process (crazy I know!). It failed, but I’m still freelancing and much healthier through strive and Grace.

  42. Barbara Stenby says

    my husband had 4 strokes two years ago at the age of 44 It made me appreciate everything I have now due to almost losing him. Grateful for everyday, Stronger now too. Quit smoking that day haven’t had one since.

  43. Vicki D. says

    Having gone through the deaths of my sister, my mother, my father, and a close aunt have made me stronger.

  44. mary j says

    I am working out twice a week with a personal trainer. This has made stronger because before doing this I did not exercise.

  45. LeAnn Knott says

    I was forced to leave work due to a physical disability and 5 years later I still have to remember that it made me 2X stronger to continue each day, I was then able to be at homewith my daughter!

  46. Michelle Tucker says

    Being with my mother when she passed, holding her hand. It made me so much stronger. I never knew I’d be able to be strong enough to do that.

  47. kathy pease says
