4 years ago...

Four years ago if I went out to dinner with friends I would eat half my plate and put the rest in a to-go box. On the way home I would finish my leftovers and call in an order for a pizza. Then, I would circle around town eating until I decided to go home and immediatly pass out.

Combine that with keggers, little sleep, no exercise and you have one serious problem. I remember always thinking, "What's wrong with me?"

Thankfully, all of that is in the past. I don't want to get into how I got from point A to point B right now but I do want to emphasize that I am happy now. Really, really happy. My happiness stems from being able to recognize where I have problems and being able to set goals to fix them. There have been a bunch of articles lately about our relationship with food and yes, I can say that I have food issues, but I am trying to fix them. It's the little things, like never buying a loaf of bread or not keeping junk food in the house, that are inching me towards my goals - I will have ab definition, I will have a 300# deadlift, I will have 30 pull ups in a row.


  1. There is no doubt in my will achieve all your goals! You're certainly not alone with the food issues but it's brave of you to speak aloud of them.

  2. I agree! I struggle with food issues too, and can totally relate to that. I am SO proud of all your progress. I have no doubt in my mind that you will reach your goals. You're so awesome and continue to be an inspiration to me. Keep rockin' it!!!

  3. I'm so glad that you're HAPPY HAPPY now! You will knock all those goals outta the water with the way that you're're doing awesome girl! Keep it up!
