I’m new to this. So new to this. I decided to blog in a desperate attempt to lose weight but still be the mom I need to be. I have a story that’s a bit different, and I thought perhaps putting it all out there would be enough to pick me up, throw me out there and keep me a float. I also hope along the way to inspire and help others. My name is Becky. I’m 39 years old and I’m married. I also have 7 kids. I think my worst quality is weighing 333 pounds. My heart hurts just typing it. My weight is a result of using food as my happy, my sad, my mad and my fun. I don’t drink or do drugs. I just eat! The hardest part is keeping up w 7 kids who need me. I have tried everything! Everything is every diet out there and thousands of dollars. Yet still, here I am at my heaviest. I was born and raised in California and lived there until a couple months ago when we moved to Idaho. I love it here and I’m ready to publicly start my adventure.

As for my kids,  Joshua is 18. He is the oldest. He has been a challenge all his life but especially as a teen. He has some special needs that make socializing hard. Dominic is a senior in high school. Good kid. A pain, but good. Hilary is out of high school, and struggles with everyday life. The girl was an angel until she turned 17! Sean is next. He is 12 and in 7th grade. He is overall a very good boy. Super close with his dad. Nalani is in 6 th grade, and is a major over achiever. Sweet and athletic. An easy kid! Michael is 9 and in 4th grade. He is sweet but needs attention every second. The youngest at age 8 is Shiloh. She’s small for her age but a real spit fire! My 7 loves who I would die for yet they take so much out of me.  I will start my diet tomorrow and keep posted how I do it! Continue reading
