    I absolutely needed this. My anxiety (over my weight) was so bad before starting to lose weight - I'm still struggling, but it is already better with 40 pounds lost. I am thankful that you shared your story and gave me hope that with losing weight, I'll gain the confidence to overcome this.

    Love it! Inspiring, not only because I am on a weight loss journey, but because I have two teen boys who live for video games and I worry about them finding a path in life outside of playing those things. LOL

    Well done, you look fantastic and so healthy & happy which is the main thing.

    I totally get where you're coming from as I suffered from anxiety and turned to food as my comfort, I could literally feel food pushing the anxiety back down into my stomach! I sought counselling for what I described as my 'food monster' and it was the best thing I ever did. I still have a lot of work to do to get where I want to be, but I have discovered I love eating well and working out and I feel like a whole new person.

    You're a true inspiration and thank you for sharing your story. I think people are only starting to realise how much food is linked to anxiety & depression and what a vicious circle it can be, so very well done for being so open and honest and most of all for turning your life around. You rock!!
