Hello! My name is Kathleen and I live in Pennsylvania. I am 33 years old and am the owner and author at the blog, Just the Two of Us and Deals!
I grew up in a single parent household and with this, my mom tried to make up for my absent father by cooking a lot for me. In my house and in my family, saying “I Love You” was only “said” via a cooked meal. While I was a normal weight all the way up until 11 years old, it was then that the weight slowly started to get packed on. All through middle school and high school, I was teased for not only being overweight but for not having the best brand clothing because my mom couldn’t afford it. I never told anyone about being bullied, I merely turned to my friend of food which didn’t judge me, was always there for me and comforted me when I needed it. I continued to gain weight.
I had tried MANY diets in the past
I tried Atkins and while initially it was great to eat meat, cheese, eggs etc, I got tired of eating the same things over and over plus after the initial few weeks of losses, I didn’t lose at all.
