I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah but my mom, my siblings, and I moved to San Diego over 26 years ago. I have always struggled with my weight. Oh heck I'll just say it...I'm an emotional eater. I turn to food for comfort. I have tried every diet you can imagine, and some have worked but soon or later I put it back on. When my mother passed away in 2001 I was almost 320lb's. I promised myself that I was going to take better care of myself. I did! I started working out. Riding my bike pretty much everywhere. I was eating healthy, watching my portions and I was able to eventually get myself under 200 pounds. I was feeling good and was happy. I met the love of my life and we've been together for 7 years and married for five. It wasn't until the end of last year that: stress from work, going back to school, losing my job, and well, just life in general sprung it's ugly little head my way. I starting returning to my bad habits. I knew once I started heading down that ugly vicious cycle again of eating poorly and not exercising, that I was just opening up my arms to weight gain. Having recently stepped on the scale and seeing 251 really irks me. How could I let this happen again? Yes, there hasn't been a time in my 32 years that I haven't been over weight, but darn it all- I'm tired of it. I'm over feeling cruddy...I'm over living an unhealthy life. I want more for myself, I want to be around for my hubby and our future family, and the only way to do this is by changing my bad habits, and realizing that, "Yes,I do deserve better!" So I'm ready to reprogram my way of thinking and the way I cope with the daily fun we call life. I want to do a 360 degree turn around...and maybe, just maybe-I want to be able to fit into some sexy skinny jeans. Let's do this!!!
