start celebrating YOU!
Hello! I’m Ebony. I have been overweight my whole life. Weight has been a huge struggle for me and most days I believe that it always will be. I have tried so many times to lose weight that I have lost count. Growing up I had always felt like something wasn’t right. I felt insecure and afraid, but you would have never known. My mother always told me to put on your game face and go out into the world like nothing was wrong.
I grew up in a small town on Long Island. I would consider myself a smart individual. I never had any problems in school, and graduated in the top percentile of my class. I went on to college, making me the first woman in my immediate family to do so, and graduated with a bachelor's in psychology. These are major achievements. They mean a lot to me. As I think back to these moments in my life I didn’t celebrate them enough. I didn’t celebrate me enough. Something was missing...
