I saw this picture on my instagram feed and its now one of my favorite quotes:
The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow"

It made me think about my journey in life. I was in a failed marriage for 10 years, didn't have the strength or the self esteem to get out. After 2 kids and my scale topped at 255 lbs I had enough of it. I love my kids but I didn't want them to see me like that. Found a diet that worked fast, I had the naysayers because it was HCG diet (I wanted results fast). I only stayed on for 2 months and lost 60 lbs. I got off of it because I couldn't afford it any longer plus I needed to eat real food lol.

Fast forward to a couple years after my divorce. Dated losers, went through hard times, dealt with a controlling mother that I had to live with until I could afford to move. It was really hard. Got my own place and my own life, I was happier that I could be on my own and do my own thing.

Then I met my now husband!

I didn't want to be tied down but he truly swept me off my feet. I was enjoying my single life!

We married only a month after we started dating, crazy huh?

But we did go through a lot of rockyness, it wasn't always perfect


He is my best friend, the one I wished I knew before. I never really believed in soulmates but I believe he is mine.

I struggle every day, now with 3 kids, bills, organizing, scheduling, trying to lose weight after having a baby (2 years later!). Its tough.

I wish I had a friend to hang out with here.

Til next time.

    Sounds like you have had a rough time but sounds like through it all it has only made you a stronger person and an independent person. Keep up the good work.
