hmmm....My story....Well, I am 29 years old, a scorpio, black and fly. lol. sounds like a dating-site add. In real life though, I am a mother of two lovely boys. They are 8 and 10. I am here because I want a better quality of life. Plain and simple. I want to live easier, breathe easier, shop easier, travel easier. I've had way too much hard. It was beyond time for me to get to the good, easy part of life. I am tired of physical pain, I am tired of shifting my fat rolls. I am tired of shopping in stores that only sell big flower prints and elastic waste jeans. I am tired of eating my life away. I needed help. Diva in Distress!I was complaining to my husband about being fat, quite dramatic, I admit, but I was trying to get him to understand my struggle, I don't think he can. It's so much different for man, anywho, back to the story, I was lamenting to DH and my son, who had to be five at the time says Mom, yes, you're fat, but very pretty. I was like, whoa! Don't call me fat, boy! Just Kidding. But, it touched something in me. I thought of all the times my weight kept me from having maximum fun. I have always been a fake it till you make it person, but what about the times when I just HAD to sit down or let their dad take over after just a few swings of the baseball bat. I wasn't the best me I could be nor was I the best mother I could be. I committed to be BETTER. Easier said than done.... Here I am.
