A married mom to 3 young boys, who in the past has chosen to deal with stress, anger, sadness, deprivation by eating foods that temporarily make me feel like I'm "treating" myself.

After 2 years of emotional upheaval I want find some inner peace, strength, and self discipline. This I believe will help me in all aspects of my life, not just getting back a healthy me who can fit in my old jeans. I haven't felt genuine in a long time. I know I haven't been my best and in spite of this I get so much love from my boys. I feel that I'm cheating them and myself.

I know that there is a happier, "lighter", me inside. I just need to dig through some layers to find her. That is the path I'm on, starting today.
