Finally Letting Go

BMI Goal: 24.8 = 140 lbs.

It has been an incredible journey for me these past couple years.

It has been an incredible journey for me these past couple years. In January of 2010 I found myself getting divorced, moving, and learning how to be a single parent, all while holding myself together. I admit, I didn't hold myself together that well. I slept 14 plus hours a day, ate comfort food, and just focused on getting out of bed every morning to earn a paycheck and support myself and my son. My unhappy marriage had already left me with a lot of weight to lose, and I needed something to take my focus off being unhappy and alone, so I started to work on weight loss. I wasn't in any hurry, and I refused (and still refuse) to crash diet. I wanted any loss, even if it was just 2 pounds, to be gone forever, and I knew doing it slowly was the only way to make that happen.

It is amazing what stress will do to your body. Once I began to feel rested and safe in my new environment the weight really started to come off. In the first year I lost close to 40 pounds. I believe with all my heart that just learning to love myself and have confidence boosted that weight loss.
