“…my body is no longer holding me hostage.”

As a thin child with an overweight mom, I thought the obesity issues in my family were going to skip over me. But when I turned 20 they started. I tried not to let obesity run my life, but I struggled emotionally as I lost control. I thought changing my lifestyle meant changing who I was. I was wrong. Changing my lifestyle just gave me permission to be who I was meant to be. With the surgery and the weight loss, my body is no longer holding me hostage. I’m back in control – and sitting a lot closer to the steering wheel.
