Do you ever have one of those days where you just want to “stay home” and DO NOTHING? Well in 2012 that was my every day! I was over 225 lbs. and completely exhausted. At the time I was a stay at home “mom and dad” because my husband Ryan traveled so staying home was just easier for me on many different levels. One Spring morning my husband, the adventurer, wanted us to have a family day in the mountains. What he didn’t realize was internally it made me MAD he even suggested this. He had no idea the mental battle I struggled with because of the number on the scale and how I felt in my clothes. I wore pants and a white sweater on this warm day to try to “hide” my imperfections. The aggravation towards my husband grew when he suggested taking family pictures. He had no idea that all I wanted to do was to stay on the white blanket he put out for our picnic and hide.
