My biggest stress seems to be teenagers who seem to know more than adults. Nothing you tell them, even with proof, seems to be correct as far as they are concern. I see it daily,even seen it from my kids when they were teens. They are now young adults, and saying mom thank you and you were right. So many parents I see struggling with out of control teens. They don't know where to turn. They can't do what there parents done, because society says its wrong now. Today's reprimands don't work. Well I wish I could tell you something that works, but I've yet to find what works. I wish anyone luck with this problem. I will also keep you in my prayers, because I found only Jesus will get you through those years.

As I sit here and read blogs from others, I go back in time and start to remember things I indured and let drive me deeper into my addiction, FOOD. All the children and adults that I walked away from and didn't inform them what they said was hurting.
Growing up I was laughed at by the majority of the kids I knew. Even adults and family members thought it was cute to have a laugh at my expense. In my teens I decided to beat them to the punch and laughed at myself. Then I would come home, then hide while I eat whatever I could and cry from the pain.
As a young adult all this affected my self-esteem and I became further depressed and ate even more. After three failed marriages, and 150 lbs added on, I was ready to give up on life and just eat my life away. I had no will to continue on, or the will to change myself.
Then I met a man that has always respected me. He has never said any unkind words to me, and he loves me for better or worse. It took me several years of being married to him to realize I deserved to be treated this way and I should not accept anything less.
After years of counseling and dealing with the root of the problem that has caused my addiction, and illnesses that put even more weight on me, I am ready to start a new life. One that I deserve.
I know it's a slow process and there are no quick fixes. I have set my motivation, and obtainable goals. With Jesus' help, I will take it one day at a time and will not let setbacks keep me from succeeding.
To sum up how I will look at life now:
I'm not as good as I want to be, but I'm better than I use to be.
Thank you Jesus for the strength you have given me.
