I'm a 39-year-old mother of 2 awesome kiddos. My son is 5 and my daughter is 15. I'm in the middle of a separation from my husband, and the stresses of having to be civil while divorcing under the same roof is sometimes more than I can handle. I've decided instead of steadily getting fatter, I'd like to be getting steadily thinner as I begin this new chapter in my life and the last year in my 30's.
I've been overweight since I was a fetus, pretty much. Sometimes a little overweight, sometimes grossly overweight, but I've never once been "average" weight for my height or age. That is my ultimate goal. I've not loved myself in a very long time, and I love myself even less with recent events and HUGE weight gain.
Dude...I always see women LOSE weight going through divorces. I'm the complete opposite and I'm sickened by my weight gain. I've gained 30 pounds in 6 months. That is horrific and appalling.
So here I am! I'm here to stay. Even if I fail, I'll jump back on and keep pedaling forward. I've got nothing to lose at this point...except some fat.
