how did i get this way??

by Kelly

When I was young I could eat whatever I wanted and never gain a pound 109 pounds from 7th grade till age 20 after having my beautiful children I was even able to get back to 130. I was finally happy with my weight I looked healthy at 5'4 I finally didn't look a walking skeleton.. Raising my babies became my life and my love for them helped me be confident in myself.. as I have gotten older. I have gained first to 150, then 160 ugh I started to feel less confident and more worried about how others saw me.. in 2009 I broke my ankle and have been struggling since with weight gain now 190 pounds, pain, and low self esteem&self worth, and a rollarcoaster of emotions I see my beautiful daugther struggling with the same hardships of weight gain.. and It makes me want to help not only myself but her as well feel better from the inside out... I am now 38 years old my kids are not babies anymore time for me to start working on me for me..since I downloaded this my kindle three days ago I have felt soooo much better about my newest weight loss journey.. this has reminded me I am beautiful,I am worth it but above all I am loved unconditionally and and Never alone God loves me for me not who I want to be or think i should be in others eyes ... Thank you for helping me see this fact and reminding me Something that everyday life should never make us doubt that each of us is beautiful, worth it, and loved daily even when life seems hard and lonely .. I am excited about my new journey. Thank you and God bless
