It's learning, living, and never giving up that matters! <3 In this photo, I was SO HAPPY, and Joyful with my life, but I was clueless to the reality I was headed into... In photo (2011): - Loved that I am happily married. - Loved being a mom times 4!!!! - Loved what I saw in the mirror. - Loved being blessed by God and family. - Loved the nonprofit God called us to start. ...and more. In reality: - I was everything listed above, but... clueless to a huge life change with the help of God in about 6 months later. - I never saw or would call my self 'obese', I was plus size. - I was not 'heavy', I had curves. - It was not on my radar that I was on a path to any ill health. 6 months later: - I had gotten sick. Very sick, flu-like.
