    3 Years Later

    This was me three years ago. I'm smiling on the outside, but inside I was crying, maybe even screaming because I was so unhappy with myself.


    Three years ago today, I was wheeled into surgery believing that I was going to die on the table. When you weigh 384 pounds, you don't have much hope that you will go on living.

    Who knew how much my life would change? I have my life back now. I broke out of a body that was my prison. I'm able to do things that I never dreamed my body could. I can run and wrestle with my girls.

    While life has really been kicking me in the butt, lately, I realize that I'm still better off than I've ever been in my life. I have so much to be thankful for.

    1. Congrats, Ms. Sign-licious. You are beautifulness. So much eff-ing beautifulness.

    2. I haven't been getting around Blogland like I used to and am SO glad I came here today. I read every post on here right now and I have to say that your writing, your strength, your courage, your positivity, and basically all that is YOU is just making me feel like I've got to get my OWN shit together and try to be more like you, Sign-babe. You are so freaking awesome. Seriously.

    3. I'm going through some hard times myself, and I am drawing inspiration from every single courageous word you write here.

    I think you rock.

    You hot, sexah french maid, you.

    Much love and kisses too,
