Greetings! I've been overweight most of my life. After experiencing some devastating things in my childhood, I began to turn to food as my solace. Food became my friend that didn't talk back to me, and the "sneak-eating" began at the age of 9. By the time I was 12 years old and in the 6th grade, I was 212 lbs. Wow! It is hard to believe that after all of these years, I'm still battling the same food issues. I am now 35 years old and 327 pounds. I can't believe I just typed those numbers, but I have to face it in order to begin to heal and get my life back. I'm tired of feeling like I'm 50. I'm tired of being exhausted, my knee hurts, my joints hurt, my back hurts, I don't have the energy to play with my 3 year old son. Shopping isn't even fun anymore, because my lower back aches before I can even get going in the stores. Most of all, I know that I'm not living my life to the fullest due to the weight. It is a barrier for me. It is like having mud in my wings.

I am hopeful and have faith that God has brought me this far for a reason. This is my year to begin again. I accept it and receive it. This will be the year that I am victorious over being super morbidly obese. Let the journey begin.....
