My name is Sara. I’m a stay at home mom to a wonderful son who’s almost 5. I have a husband who I love and have been with for 10 years. We live in Hawaii. Let me start off by saying Hawaii on the island that I live in it rains a lot. We get about 148 inches of rain each year. That is a whole lot of water.
How did you get so fat?
I started around the 5th grade. I remember transferring schools, which I did not seem to mind too much. I remember trying to console a new classmate to not be sad about her weight that I weighed 145lbs. She ended up telling the whole class and they began to make fun of me.
I ate because I just loved food. I still love food.
When I was 17, I was raped and I emotionally ate. I didn’t feel comfortable telling anyone what happened and I ate to make me feel better. I ate so no one would look at me. I still don’t like talking about it, most of my friends and family don’t know. Well they probably do now. Hi there! -waves-
How much did you weigh and how much did you lose so far?
After my son was born I was 365 lbs. I’m currently 267 lbs. I was 265, BUT someone brought in ice cream into the house knowing full well its my kryptonite.
