There was a moment in 2003 when I looked down at the scale and it said 210 lbs! I knew I had the opportunity to NOT let it get to where it took me in 2007! However, in 2003 I remember clearly stepping on the scale reading the number and saying in my head, “Forget it, why bother!” I decided let it go, I let myself go never looking back or stepping on that scale again until 2007. When I finally looked at where I really was … I was so depressed. I asked myself so many questions, “How did I get here again, why me, now what, do I just let it get worse, or do I find a way to turn this around now?”
