So many of you know I was in the running to the be next prior fat girl.  This was a great honor for me to be selected as one of the nine women to have thier stories shared.  Although I did not win, for me just sharing my story was a big win!  Not only did I get to put my story into words, which was healing in its own right, but I made the big decision to share my story with people in my real life.  Most people I work with along with my friends have no idea what I have been struggling with in terms of my weight and eating issues.  Just being part of the competition has made me feel lighter and freer then I have in a very long time.  I am so proud of all the other eight women in this competition with me and I am so excited for Ali to start on her journey over at Prior fat girl.  As for me, I will be here plugging away and sharing my journey where I always have.  For the first time in a long time I am really proud of myself.  So a great thanks to Jen at Prior fat girl for the opportunity and even though I lost...I lost something more important the shame that I have felt in regards to my eating issues.  Sometimes when we loose, we actually really win!

    Always! I went from 240 to 140 (not now of course! lol) And what I lost was minimal to what I gained! Be proud of what you accomplished! Sorry you didn't win though.

  2. So true! In weightloss we often gain more than we ever thought possible by losing. I gained confidence I had lost, and a passion for life and fitness emerged with every pound dropped.
    You should be so proud of yourself! It takes a lot of courage to be so open and honest about something that is so hard to discuss.
    Keep up the good work!

    I can't tell you how proud I am to have been nominated with you! I love this post and couldn't have said it better myself. I look forward to following you on this journey!

  5. Such a profound post....most people in my "real life" still don't know about my blog - even after PFG. Your blog is amazing, thank you for being so real and honet!
