About Me

I am a 28 year old woman with a varied and colored path behind me. I am to a point in my life where I was losing control of my emotions and my eating habits and it truly scared the hell out of me. I’ve done the “yo-yo” diet and exercise routine for the last 10 years, and each time I’ve gained more weight and felt so much worse about myself.

Thankfully, I am at a place in my life where I have a husband that loves and supports me. I have a sister and a mother who have been there for me through all the darkest days of my life. I am glad to be at a point now where I can say enough is enough and for once focus on being that happy and well-balanced person I used to be.

Even though I was 250 pounds when I graduated high school 9 years ago, I was so much healthier and happier than I am now. The years of yo-yo dieting, of restrict and binge cycles, has left me weighing over 330 pounds. I know all the things I “should” be doing, but I just have never been able to stick with the changes because I despised myself so much.

The journey I am sharing on this blog is a very personal one and I can only hope to bring inspiration to other women (and men) who are in the same boat as I. One thing I have not allowed myself to believe in a very long time is that anything is possible if you want it bad enough. Being around for my family for another 50 or more years is something I want very badly. So please, read this blog with an open heart and follow my journey.



  1. I admire and respect you, Brenda!
