My one year journey dedicated to my kids and thanking God in heaven for the success of experienced so far. I am a 44 year old mom of three grown kids and a grandma to one gorgeous granddaughter. I stand at 5’3″ and started this journey at 196 lbs. Last weigh in was right after Thanksgiving 2014, I was 151 lbs. I haven’t been back on the scale lately as I don’t own one. However, I’ve gone from a size 16 jean to a 10. My goal is to fit comfortably into a size 8 pant/jean, however, I wouldn’t complain about getting into a 5 which was my usual lifelong jean size (that is up until I started self medicating with food and gaining weight.)
I suffer from anxiety and I systematically began self medicating with foods. My favorite fare: greasy fast food. It seemed to have a sedative effect on me. I had to learn how to deal with my anxiety in a healthy way and sometimes when my anxiety spikes, I just have to deal with it and “feel” the anxiety. It is not easy, sometimes it is down right maddening. But I don’t ever want to go back to where I was a year ago!
Hoping with some followers there will be interest in follow up videos explaining how I did it. No fads, no quick fixes, had to address the real issues and change for life.
