A blog about my weight loss journey, how I stay motivated and a hodge podge of other things, that make me, who I am.
I found you from Mama Laughlin! Thanks so much for sharing your story. It takes alot to be able to be so brutally honest! I am your newest follower. Would love for you to stop by as I am working on getting fit and losing so more weight! Have a wonderful day.http://kyleandwendymcnamara.blogspot.com/
I loved your post over there Lori! I love that you were so honest. By doing so you are letting people would know they aren't alone. We all have a past and some of us have some scary tales in this weight loss game. I am so glad you came out on the other side and that you are smokin hot because of it!
Lori you had me in tears. Such a hard thing to write I know. You are one strong mama!!So proud of you and all you have overcome!
You are such a brave, strong woman! I praise you for your hard work and dedication! You look fantastic! You're a true inspirationFeel free to follow me on my weight loss journey as well.allthingspretty17.blogspot.com
Saw your moving post on Mama Laughlin this morning. Thank you for sharing. Although I've never purged (because I couldn't make myself when I tried), I related to your thoughts and feelings behind it. I've realized how unhappy I am and what a miserable person I've become because of it. My husband and children deserve to have me back, a happy healthy Mom/Wife and I deserve it too! I can't wait to read through your journey and follow you
Loved your story girl!! You're amazing!
I just read your story on Mama Laughlin. You are a brave and wonderful woman. I struggled with bulimia myself, I know how addicting it is. Bless you! I am going to follow your blog!
I have to say I too found you through MamaLaughlin and I am now following here and on IG, I cried when I read your story on her page, and I continued to read through 5 posts of yours and wondered how I had not found your blog before. You look fantastic and I def needed a dose of realilty today! Thanks for your inspiration! I started my journey in January and I am determined to be as healthy as possible this time next year!Lindsaycowboybootsandanapron.blogspot.com
Hi Lori! Your story has touched me deeply! I'm a 20 something wife & mom of 2 trying to lose the baby weight & get fit for life! I've struggled with my weight my whole life & like you, I let it control my life! I'm so happy that your husband stood by you! 2 years ago, I was on the verge of divorce for the very same reason! HOW STUPID!! Thank you so much for sharing your story! I know you will help many women!!Brooklyn- browneyedgem.com
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I too am struggling with overcoming an eating disorder and I feel so alone. I am so relieved that someone is so open and honest about her struggles and has overcame them!
Found you via Mama Laughlin. Just wanted to commend you on sharing your story and to tell you that you are freakin' gorgeous with a smokin' body. Don't be so hard on yourself, whatever "flaws" you see, I certainly don't, and I'm sure others would agree. I am 44 years old and while I've never struggled with weight, I'm working on getting in the best shape of my life. You inspire me. Keep up the good work, you are AMAZING!
Loved tour post. : )
Thanks for sharing your story!! You're a great motivation for everyone!!
Lori, thanks for sharing. As a psychologist I know how difficult but yet how far you have come to be able to share your experiences and journey. May positive come from your struggle and by sharing be able to help others. Wishing you success as you continue on your healthy journey. I too have a blog clevelandcrew2013@blogspot ... My blog is a fun "mommy" type of blog (you mentioned you had children) where I share celebrating the holidays the little and the BIG. I have just recently made it public after my friends and family have begged me to for years. Come follow me as well. I need some first followers, lol.
Hi Lori. Read your guest post. I can totally sympathize with your story. I won't go into my story. It's a long one. I do have it posted in one of my earlier blogs if you ever get bored and have some free time. I am so glad that you sound like life is as it should be. I thank God I've been in recovery now for over 4.5 years. Feeling happy and free of the bulimia is one of the best achievements I've experienced!
Great post, I was tearing up. Thanks for being so honest and open. =)
Lori! Another great post and you hit home with me today. I've never had an eating disorder but I do struggle with binging and the thing that hit me most was when you said "don't ever let your weight define your happiness" .. I do this so much it definitely affects my relationships. I hate it and I would do anything to change it! Thank you once again for sharing your story and giving us all hope. Thank you also for your kind email yesterday, I really appreciate you taking your time to reply to me =) Have a great day!!!

I just read your story from Mama Laughlin. You are an inspiration. I'm now following you. I loved your honesty and bravery in writing that post.
