When I married, I weighed 131 lbs and in the best shape of my life. I wore a bikini on our honeymoon, for the first and probably the last time in my life! But then I found myself on the plane wearing a dress that I bought in Hawaii, that fit perfectly not 3 days before, squirming in my seat because the dress now felt 2 sizes two small. My weight just ballooned from there.
I just started a 3 days cleanse and I have realized, probably for the first time, what an emotional and bored eater I am. But I am bound and determined to make this lifestyle change. It doesn't just stop after three days, that is just a jump start. I am 10 lbs lighter than I was 6 months ago when we moved. I don't want to be the 131 lbs I was 11 years ago, I just want to be healthy. I want to be alive to grow old with my husband! I know that I will have my struggles, I will always be an emotional eater and I will most likely always have a body image problem, but I know that with God's help, I can be healthy again.
