WELL HERE IT GOES
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.
