I’m a mother of a wonderful 8year old and wife of a loving husband.  God has blessed me with my family. 

  I consider myself very beautiful but I know that my health is at risk with the weight on. I want to be here for my children and grandchildren.  My mother passed away 3 years ago at 52. Since then my quest to loose weight has taken a new meaning.  I have been overweight all my life so I do not know what it is to be thin. I want it so bad.  My weight is making daily activities difficult, it must be because I'm at my heaviest and older. I'm only 28 but I want to get this under control and of course I have tried every diet gimmick out there.  I'm sure I have spent thousands of dollars on diet products that over the years have made me gain more weight.  I have yo-yoed diet since I was a child.  I remember being 7 years old and actually exercising to a tape.  A seven year old worried about her weight and now that I think about it is sad.  Ever since then I remembered being conscience of pictures.  I gained my weight at age 6 and since then I have struggled.  I’m surprised that I have good self esteem considering all these years of dieting and being self conscience.  In a way I have used my obesity to fine tune my personality, I’m very outgoing and well spoken.  I smile a lot because I felt that I had to make up for my body with my personality and beautiful face.  So that is a good thing that has come out of this.  I have also learned to dress my body well and have become a fashion and make up expert because of it.  So, is not all bad, I have fined-tuned other skills.  I’m a survivor and a strong women\leader because of it but I have always known that I have to make a change for God,  myself and for my family.  I know there is more to live and discover once I’m not confined to this weight.  I know that with God I will be victorious because I truly feel in my heart that this is the answer and my time has come to blossom even further.  I know that God has a plan for me and is time to write the next chapter.
