“I just couldn’t find time or energy for exercise, for gym. In fact, for anything. Being a first-time mother, everything was an uphill struggle.”
“My husband Rick was supportive – at first. But when the weight gained from my pregnancy failed to come down, I noticed a change in him. He seemed to care less about me and our baby girl. He would go out and not come home again for days.”
“During an argument one day, he let slipped that I was fat, ugly and disgusting. I knew then our marriage was over. I was able to tell he was having an affair. But I kept silent.”
“When our baby turned one, Rick came home and said he wanted a divorce. He was leaving me for a younger woman.
I begged him to think twice for the sake of our kid, but he was having none of it.”
“I was shattered. I couldn’t bear the thought of being a single mother at just 28 years old!"
“I took a real hard look at myself… and then decided I need to turn things around.”
