This is my youngest daughter. She may appear thin and frail but you couldn't be more wrong.
She was a farm wife for many years and milked a herd of cows while raising three boys and dealing with a very "troubled" husband.
She handled her stress by over-eating and gained an enormous amount of weight. When the marriage became intolerable, she finally got a divorce and moved to a small town where she struggled to support her boys.
However, with her great strength and courage, she has worked her way up in her profession. She is a respected member of the community. Her sons are all grown now, she has remarried and they own a home. Along the way, she shed way over one hundred pounds.
So, our family is very proud of her and everything she has accomplished!
