I have always struggled with my weight and was always picked on because of it. When I hit my twenties I slimmed out but I still had a complex and thought that I was too big. I wasn't at the time but I had been told too many times I was. Then tragedy struck – my father and rock to my existence died in a car crash. I was driving the car! I never seemed to recover and self-doubt and a low self-esteem landed me in a toxic relationship that resulted in 2 kids. However, I soon made the choice to walk away from the relationship and raise my kids in a better environment. I made myself strong to the world! Tough as nails!

Time went by and other things in my life happened. The first was I made the decision to change my birth control (3 mo injection) and the result was horrible! I gained 60lbs in 3 the months! I was traumatized - shocked and didn't try to change it! Weight gain!!!! BOOOO!!! Later, I was diagnosed with major hearing loss in 2006 and soon wore hearing aids. Weight gain!!!! BOOOO!!! This was yet another hit to my ego. Then in 2007 I quit smoking!! Yeah! Weight gain!!!! BOOOO!!! Self-esteem busted again! I then made choices to change things because I am still tough as nails!!!
1) I spoke to a specialist and found out my hearing could be surgically corrected and have, so far, had one ear fixed and no longer wear the hearing aids.
2) Now that my kids are older and I am not needed as much I made the realization that I had devoted every fiber of my being into them and had lost me in the process.
3) Decided it was time to do something I have always wanted to do – I went back to school to pursue an Accounting Designation.
4) It is time to change what I have wanted to (but didn't) for far too long, and I am ready to do it now! Weight loss!!!

It has been a couple of years since then and I am still a single Mom of 2 - my son just turned 18 and my daughter will be 16 shortly. I am in school and have 2 years to go before that will be accomplished. With the new career on the horizon I want a new start and I want to be able to enjoy what I have been working so hard for. On to #4!!!!
