I have always had a weight problem. The last 5 years have been a struggle. I have overcome a lot of things, from abuse to eating disorders, and I am proud to say that slowly but surely I have become a better and stronger person. I am a stress eater and am in a profession that is based on stress. I am getting healthy not only for myself but for my children. I want to be able to see them get married and babysit their children. My son is overweight and I want to be an inspiration to him. I have overcome many challenges especially to continue to lose weight and get healthy.
