No matter where you have been
No matter where you are
You can go somewhere else
I’ll never forget the last fight I had with my husband. Once it subsided, I reached for the bottle. I needed that drink. I needed to soothe, I wanted to forget, and more importantly, I had to escape.
My hands trembled as I poured. I peered into a mirror, which hung above like a witness. The reflection was unrecognizable. The hair was a lifeless shade of blond, the face pale and doughy (probably due to the extra 130 pounds), and the expression can only be described as “defeated.”
I thought, “What happened to you? This isn’t you.”
In that moment, I knew a frightening secret kept hidden far within the recesses of my own mind. But it was there and it was now shouting at me… “You will die!”
And 3 days later, I did what most 265 pound women who feel victimized and defeated do….
I told my husband I was going to the post office. I hopped on my scooter (which is the only way to travel through the streets of LA) And got the fuck out of there! I left everything behind. I wanted nothing of that life anymore.
This is more than a comeback story.
This is more than a bad marriage story (though it was horrible)
This is more than a weight loss story (though I was obese)
This is a story of discovery, a story of authenticity, and a story of truth.
I hit rock bottom, I was a mess and it was because of me…My choices, my decisions, my avoidance and my lies. Now, I am willing to share all of it with you. This is a 100% true story. You will be shocked at how much I actually divulge in this book. Are you ready for it?
