following: Desdimona's own diet
performance: losing 5.8 lb a week

I am 29 years. I am a stay home mom of 2. I have a son 4 years old who was diagnosed with Autism when he was 2. I have a daughter who is 3. I been with their father for 8 years, though engaged, we just consider ourselves husband and wife due to setting back our wedding date to focus on our children especially our son. As for me, well It finally hit me, one day I had a breakdown looking at myself in the mirror. How did I let it go this far? I asked myself. When did I become so careless? Not making excuses but being a stay at home mom can be very rough for me, especially when you have no help, I will not bother my husband because he works really hard as is. I just wish I had family who could give a helping hand once in a while so i can have a break, but I don't. MY days are always busy in my house hold, I am lucky to even come on here at times. I just stopped caring about me and put everyone else before me, as for my kids they are my world and most important so of course I put them first, but now I need to make time for myself somehow because I fear if I do not lose this weight once and for all I will die of obesity and that is not how I want to go out in this world. I am taking this diet seriously and all i can do is kick my pessimistic habits to the side and start being more positive and have hope...
