When I called Dr. Laura about my emotional eating 3 months ago, she told me to call someone to watch my kids while I did pushups. That sparked a fire in me, and I committed myself to a journey to be a better mother and wife than I was. Today, I’m down 30 lbs and ran my first 5K ever. I am happy, off all anti-anxiety/antidepressant medication and can run circles around my kids instead of them run around me.
I am 31 years old and have 5 children ages 6 and under. If I can do it, anyone can. Thank you, Dr. Laura, for changing my life and making me the best mom I can possibly be, and the hottest girlfriend to my husband again! Even though my 20 month old looks entirely unimpressed in this picture, I hope I’ve shown my children what I tell them all the time, “You can do hard things”.
Here is the picture from my first (and not last) 5K today! I finished in 35 minutes which is amazing considering I couldn’t even run for 2 minutes at a time 2 months ago.
