Well this is my story. My weight have went up and down for most of my life, however when I decided that it was time to finally take control of my weight i weighed 320+lbs. My brother was tall and skinny and could eat anything but me on the other hand.. If i ate a candy bar i would gain 10lbs... It was 2001 September my brother and I had a long talk and he had been going thru some struggles with stopping his drug abuse, and my over eating. I finally understood that an addiction is an addiction no matter if it is food, drugs or cocktails... We both agreed to talk to each other every day..checking in to make sure that we were sticking to the plan. It was about 2 1/2 months into it and I had joined Bally's Sports club, I had started eating the right things, stopped the sinceless snacking and had started loosing weight.. things were going the right way for once. Then on November 27, 2001 I received a phone call from my mother telling me that a police officer came to the house saying that my brother was dead. To cut a really long story short he was at the wrong place at the wrong time he was stabed in the chest and drowned in his own blood. That was a stab to my heart... I love my brother so much I almost lost my mind. He had just made 30yrs old on Nov. 11th we were 16-mths apart. I started working out 2x a day and hour each rip on the elliptical machine, ab crunches 150 2x a day, arms, leg squats, inner, and outer thighs... I was working out really hard to keep from loosing my mind. I lost about 100lbs or so, then low and behold in 2003 I got pregnant....WOW.. and gained about 85lbs back. I have lost almost all of the pregnancy weight but it is truly hard. I now have a 3-year old son whom i love dearly and decided I will take control of my life so he can enjoy life as well. My mother passed away Nov. 24, 2006 and I really thought I was going to go off the deep end. My brother now my mother.. But my testimony will always be GOD KNOW'S HOW MUCH YOU CAN HANDLE.... My mother and brother wanted so badly to see me get in-shape, loose weight, be healthy, and to enjoy life and that is what i am about to do. I have had my share of heartache and it's about time for the real me to come forth...
