Congratulations and all the best of luck to you. This will be a process, just stay in there.
Yes, congratulations! You are beginning your new life now, one of your own making, the life you never had.

I think that weight issues often have their beginnings in mistreatment, abuse and trauma. As you care for yourself, consider food as your medicine to help you heal. Nourish your mind, body and soul. You deserve a wonderful life.
