1. When did your weight troubles start?
I was very thin as a kid and all through my teens. Before I had kids I was 110 pounds and a size 3. When I was 21 I started having babies... Every year, I got heavier and heavier. After my second baby I was able to lose a lot of my weight. I got back down to a size 5. And then it started again.... year after year, I gained more and more weight. Now, here I am in my mid 30's as big as ever...
2. What still holds you back from losing the weight?
I think I am my own worst enemy. I self sabotage, I say mean things to myself, and I don't hold myself accountable for any of it. I am also full of excuses. (I will eat what I want now and start dieting on Monday.) This is a weekly conversation in my head.
3. Are you losing weight for any particular reason? What made you want to start losing?
There are a few reasons. I want my self respect back, I am left here with self loathing.
Me and my husband of 17 years are planning on officially tying the knot. I want to have bridal pictures done... The person that shows up in my pictures now is not me... In my mind I don't see myself as this big fatty so when I see pictures of myself it really upsets me.
I just want to be happy.
I am going to shed this fat suit and find myself :)
