The year was 2010. My weight was 345-350. I look at pictures from that time and I think to myself how did I not see what I was doing to myself at that time. It took seeing the number on the scale hit 350 for me to finally wake up and say “I had enough.” I was tired of feeling fat, worthless, and like a failure. I was tired of not being able to play with my kids. I was tired of the depression. The food addiction. I was tired. I wanted more. Better. Not only for me, but for my kids. I didn’t want them to grow up with distorted body images or with an eating disorder because they didn’t want to be like mom. The process wasn’t easy. There were many tears. Days when I felt like I just wanted to give up. Everyday I had to dig deeper than the day before. I had to want it. No one was going to do it for me. I hated every single second of training for while. I resented every rep. But, I kept going. Because my life depended on it. 1044147_10202370627814371_731209460869960856_nToday, I have lost well over 120 pounds. And i am still going. There are still days I hate training. Still days I want to quit. But, I don’t. I am happier. Healthier. I love the me I am now and the me I am becoming.
