Before with my beautiful daughter!
Hi. I'm 41 years old and the mother of an awesome 7 year old daughter. I've been married to my hubby for 12 years but we've been together for 17 years. I followed an eating plan for many years while in my 20's but after some deaths in my family and with friends, I lost control of my eating and emotions. I'm ready to start again. It's going to be a long battle (this is the highest my weight has ever been including the day I gave birth!!) but I want to be around for a long time so I can enjoy my family.
Quotes that I've heard or have seen on other pages that inspire me to keep going....
