I was adopted when I was 6 years old and my family came from Cuba. I haven't seen my adopted family since I was 12. I moved to Flordia after High School and attended USF for Business. I had an Auto Upholstery Shop in Tampa for 20 years. I loved the business and freedom. I never had a problem with my weight but I worked out as well and lived a healthy life style. My husband unexpectedly passed away and I was pregnant with twins. I gave birth to two faternal twin girls and gained about 80 lbs. with that pregnancy. I really have never lost it. I had to give my girls up for adoption which killed me but I knew it was the best thing for them. I now have a 13 year old son who is so smart, too much so for his own good, lol. I gave up the Upholstery business after the death of my husband and now work 2 jobs from home.
I am in a very abusive relationship with a man who is an alcoholic which really put a toll on my self esteem. I am in the middle of trying to get some of it back, after 15 years of being call every horrible name in the book that is meant to hurt someone. I really like living a healthy life style and working out. I need to get out of this rut I have been in for over 12 years now and get back some of what I had lost for the sake of my son. I need to be a good role model because the lord knows he does not have another to look up that is a good influence. I am working to get away from the abusive relationship at this time.
