Those that didn't know me as a child, don't realize that I had a struggle with weight. It started as a child and went into my early twentys. I was called names and made fun of. My mom always encouraged me and never made me feel bad about myself. She always said "It's just baby fat". I was never taught how to eat healthy. I was free to eat whatever I wanted.

On a rainy day, April 29th, 2000, I was not thinking of where I would be in 15 years. I was thinking "Why is it raining on my wedding day!". My wedding was outside and all was planned for the fabulous day until thunder came rolling in. How could this be? This was my day! How sweet my heavenly Father was to make it more perfect than I could even plan. With all of the outdoor chairs wet from rain no one could sit in them, so we all crammed into this little house downtown Greenv
