I have been struggling with my weight since I was 13 years old and if I knew then what I knew now, I would not be fighting this war with my body. Growing up as a child of divorced parents, I spent most of my time alone listening to music, watching television or out riding my bike. Then as I entered my pre-teen years, I found myself turning to food more and more, especially when I got angry or upset with my mother, brother or someone else. I would sneak food into my bedroom, eat as much as I could when no one was home, I felt guilty about it later but I continued on eating. I was a wallflower whom everyone ignored, no matter how much I tried, I could never fit in, not even with my own family. Now that I have two kids of my own, I want to be around for them as much and as long as possible. I have started eating right, walking everyday, even though I know just walking isn't enough to get in the shape I want to be. I will never give up on myself and I will win this battle!!!! Thank you for reading and God bless!!!!
