My entire life I have struggled with my weight and my body image. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that my mom was always on a diet when I was younger. She would eat nothing but jelly beans for a month. Or she would starve herself and walk 4 miles a day. As I got older she would say things to me like "you are so pretty but you would look so much better if you lost some weight". When I was in high school my weight was pretty consistent and I was comfortable in my own skin. My 20's were lots of yo-yo dieting and even more self esteem issues. Then at 35 I had my first child and my weight skyrocketed. Today I sit at a weight that I swore I would never be at and I need to make a change. I want to be active with my son and be a good mom.
