was written before, during, and after my divorce in 2000. I had gained nearly 80 pounds during my first pregnancy in 1995, but had not lost it all before my second pregnancy in 1996, was written after I’d lost all my extra weight, dealt with much of my childhood pain, and faced my unjustified shame. Mid-way through writing , my husband and I separated. I put the book on hold while trying to pick up the pieces of my life and become an amazing single mother to my two small daughters. However, within a year or two, I realized that I couldn’t wait any longer; I had left my daughters’ father to become my “own woman”—to pursue my own dream and to have my own voice. To stay as a victim, blaming him for my new-found lack of abundance, time, and faith was pointless.
