My name is Linda and about six years ago I was not happy with who I had become. My mother passed away in 2000 I was angry because she left me here.  I ate everything in sight from Little Debbie Snack cakes to bags and bags of M & M’s.  I didn’t care who called me out my name the only thing I cared about was eating.  I had a so called friend or so I thought she would insult me and i would sit there and laugh even though it hurt me the most.  As long as I ate and laughed at the jokes I accepted what people did to me.  I was in school and I had a professor ask me if I was a gay because I am over 40 and i wasn’t married.  It hurt and yes I felt so empty.  My mother would often say to me when you get tired you will do something about you and I did.  Even though I was over weight I took Yoga 3 days a week and a dance class 2 days a week.  I was at my heaviest at 263lbs I didn’t have a trainer.  While in college I had the yoga professors look at me as if I was something foreign and yes there were insults so I went to the very back of the class.  See even though I was over weight I was a dancer all through my youth but never had the money to follow my dreams.  I was still limber enough to do every move that was presented to me.  The professors would look at me as if how can she accomplish this as large as I was.  I come from very meager beginnings but I managed to get to where i am right now, through God, meditation and your inspirational photos.  Thank you!  Here is my before Picture and an after picture.  I still have work to do but it is no longer a struggle for me and now I pass by Little Debbie and smile….. My before picture and my after picture!!!
