I came from a family where food is love.
We are of Scandinavian descent, so any special event requires a feast.
My sister struggled with her weight but I could never relate to her frustration, until I started having children.
Then, pre-packaged convenience foods made life so much easier.
After the birth of my second child, I was up to 170 pounds.
My body felt off.
I was stressed out at work and eating crazy business takeout.
With the extra weight I had pain in my back and couldn't even pick up my son, Elijah.
I did a ton of research, until I came across bistroMD.
I was blown away by the selection of all the yummy food.
I couldn't believe I was getting to enjoy delicious food while losing weight.
It seemed unreal.
