My name is Amber and I am a mother to two wonderful and exhausting children, Bo-3 and Holly-1. As a child and teenager I never had to worry about my weight, if anything the doctors always told me I was underweight. I had it made, I could eat whatever I wanted and still never weigh more than 120 lbs. At about age 22, I got into a terrible relationship, but didn't realize it at the time. My boyfriend was telling me what to eat, hired a personal trainer for me, had a consult set-up for me to get breast implants, and told me to dye my hair blonde. He had taken over my identity, and before I realized it I was 100 lbs, blonde, sickly thin, and had no real friends. I got out of that relationship and vowed to never obsess that much about food and exercise again. 3 years later, I met my husband. I was finally in a relationship where I was loved for me, not the person I could be. I started getting too comfortable, and my metabolism started slowing down fast. Before I knew it, I went from 130 lbs to 160 within a year. What the heck happened? I got pregnant with my son a year later. 15 more pounds came on. 2 years later, I had my daughter. I was 190 lbs when I delivered. How could I let myself get that big? I was then diagnosed with 3 separate health issues, one of which related directly to my diet in order to fix it. So here I am now. I've gotten to the point where I need to do this for myself, my husband, AND my kids. It's not about me anymore. I've already lost 12 lbs since I started FatSecret about 2 months ago. I haven't felt this good in years, and people are starting to notice my weight loss already. I know I can reach my goal of 35 lbs because of the support on here. So wish me luck!
