Greetings from the Florida Panhandle!
I am an aspiring author, I have 2 Long-coat apple-head Chis' and 2 smooth-coat females. I have a large extended family who I enjoy spending quality time with as often as I can.

I am married to my best friend (24) years now! My husband and I live with my second best friend-my sister!

Obesity has been an ever present part of my life for as long as I can remember, leading to an array of chronic health problems. Although well qualified for numerous job advancements I was always passed over due to my obesity, lack of confidence and low self esteem.

Growing up I had always been the brunt of weight or sight related jokes from family, classmates and associates. This of course led to further deep seated feelings of inadequacies. I just never felt I could measure up and after a while I gave up trying, choosing instead to wallow in my self-pity behind a wall of fried foods, cakes, pies and cookies! What food could not protect me from I took on the facade of bitterness and animosity; take me as I am or don't bother to darken my doorstep led to what I had convinced myself was my protection from the hurt of others. Little did know at the time, but I was only tightening the chains about me, immobilizing me more than people ever could have !!
