Starting My Journey


















This was a picture taken at my daughter's 8th grade graduation. I was an overweight single mom trying to make my way in the world. This was back in June of 2019. I weighed over 350 lbs. Fast Forward to Jan. of 2021 my daughter gave me a challenge. she challenged me not to eat sugar or flower. I accepted her challenge. Sense then I have had many people try to sabotage me with out evening knowing they were doing it.They offer me cupcakes and chocolate covered nuts or anything that they are eating with sugar in it or flower. To be honest I am writing this because I am having a hard time not staying out of the kitchen so I am trying to do the what Mel Robins calls the "5 second Rule" and "5, 4, 3, 2, 1, kick my ass out of he ketchen and in my room and on my computer where I can share this hard journey with anyone who needs to or wants to hear.  So far it has been 2 weeks and I am going strong. TONIGHT I almost gave in to some bread and PB ut thanks to Mel Robins 5 second rule counted and left.. I am listning to this book for the second tie now. you can get it on audible.
