I come from a family (my mom) of yoyo dieters. My mom was always concerned about her weight and doing fad diets. I grew up seeing her (she probably weighed 150 at her heaviest) always saying she was fat and needed to lose weight. But actual nutrition was not something taught to us. She was a working mom of 3 and on a budget so we ate things like pizza, mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, anything quick and easy. So naturally, I was a chubby kid. When I was in 8th grade I was 5'5 and weighed 140 lbs and thought I was HUGE. I was self-conscious and so it began. I knew that if you didn't eat you would get skinny. I started playing sports and walking 6 miles a day. By the time I was in the 10th grade I weighed 110 lbs. I was in shape but mal nourished.
Then my life changed. I was drawn into a friendship by a male teacher in my school; he began to push his limits with me. Over the next year I was assaulted mentally and physically by this teacher. I was lost; I didn't know what to do or who to turn too... so I ate. If I could change my outward appearance maybe he would leave me alone. I was hurt, angry, and so confused. Food was my comfort. I gained about 40 pounds. After a year of abuse I did turn him in and testify against him. He will never be allowed in a school again. Why this is wonderful, I was still so broken inside. I struggled with this hurt and shame until I was 23 years old. Finally I looked back and decided he would no longer win. He still had the best part of me, my spirit. Something inside clicked for me. I was no longer willing to be a victim; I was going to be a survivor.
And so began my journey. I quit my job that made me miserable and found my dream job. I have an amazing boyfriend who supports me in all that I do, and a wonderful daughter. I needed to be my best for them. I found p90x and started getting in shape. It was finally time to shed the pounds that represented my pain! And here I am now, still working towards my goals and now able to help others!!
