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.

    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!

  3. Congrats on putting yourself out there (I was too chicken to do it!). I'm a new follower from PFG and I look forward to reading more of your story!

    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!
