I can literally say that I have spent thousands of dollars on weight loss programs and have even researched weight loss surgery. Temporary fixes that doesn't get to the root of the issue. I will be focus for weeks and then something will happen and I turn to food.. When I stressed... I eat... When I am lonely... I eat... When I bored... I eat... When I am overwhelmed... I eat... When I watch TV... I eat... When I celebrate... I eat... Instead of calling a friend or a family member, I have always turned to food. So when you think about it, food is my best friend. Food has been my comfort or safe place for way to long.
So now the true journey begins, the ability to truly put myself above anyone and anything. If I hurt your feelings, so what... I will no longer sacrifice myself in order to please other people. For so long I have let fear prevent me for conquering the world. So here I am 288.2 pounds, ready to face the unknown and to walk into my destiny. A destiny that is more about me then what I weight. Instead of cheering from the sidelines, I am ready to participate in the game and shoot the winning shot!!
