O.k., so I'll open up a bit more. I was a skinny little kid whose metabolism tanked at 18... COMPLETELY. Then began family degradation (WOW, you've put on weight! ...and much worse) and loss of positive body image. Have struggled since that time with roller coaster weight.

I became a mom at age 40. BEST thing that ever happened to me. I'm blessed.
