I haven’t done a #facetofacefriday (and I missed yesterday’s) in a while. I’ve beeng feeling so defeated and ashamed, so I took a step back from this account. After putting in the work, my confidence began to rise and a mental shift slowly happened. I SHOULD have been posting comp pics all along.  They help my self esteem when I’m feel like this journey is kicking my tail. When I struggle with regain in the future (and I will) I will be posting more comp pics.  Perspective is one of the keys for success!

I’ve been fighting regain for several months.  I had gained 10 lbs and struggling mentally.  I felt like I was going to lose control and the weight would keep creeping on. Then a crazy thing happened, I was able to see my problem.  I was emotionally eating my troubles away. I’ve lost 3.5 of the 10 lbs. That may not seem like much to someone who has never had a weight problem but to me this was HUGE!! I’m not letting all this stress I’m under take away all my hard work.  I’m making healthy choices instead of eating junk and eating protein first!  I’m SO proud of myself.  I just wanted to share my success with y’all! 3 years post op and my tool still works if I use it correctly!! 🤗🤗

Some of you may remember that Emma was diagnosed 2 years ago with this little known eating disorder called ARFID (avoidance restrictive food intake disorder). Never in my wildest dreams did I think that what started as a stomach ache would take over our lives and be such a struggle. It’s different from other EDs (eating disorders) because it’s fear based, it’s not a body image or weight issue disorder.  She has a fear of throwing up.  So if a certain food makes her stomach feel sick she will eliminate it from her diet.  It’s actually anxiety making her stomach upset not food. At her worst she was eating 1/2 cup of white rice a DAY!! Her pediatrician spent 2 months looking for a medical reason for her not eating. Finally, we started seeing a therapist that specialized in kids with food sensitivities/ disorders. She was able to diagnosis Emma and start her on a plan to manage her ED.  She has helped Emma a lot over the past year and a half but, we hit a wall. About 4 months ago Emma started losing weight again.  At that point we decided she needed more intensive care. Her health is being affected and it’s holding her life back. We’ve made the decision to take her to Pennsylvania for treatment.  This is truly a answer to prayer.  This program is AMAZING!! Emma and I leave Tuesday the 14th and we will be gone for 7 weeks. Please pray for our family as we go through this process. It’s going to be a long hard journey for us all. I hate the thought of being away from Jimmy and Riley that long.  I’m praying that this will help Emma overcome this ED.  I’ll post occasionally to update people but this is a personal thing for Emma.  We’ve respected her wishes by not sharing until now. Thanks in advance  for your prayers. ❤️

Happy 20th anniversary to us!! We’ve made it through so much.  This picture sums things up. I’m the normal one. Lol!  Seriously, with all the obstacles we’ve been through and the largest one ahead us, I think we’ve done well.  I don’t expect anything different in the next 20 years! I love us!! ❤️

I’m struggling with regain so I decided to post selfies and comp pics to help me mentally. Pics that make me feel beautiful and empowered! I refuse to let a number define me (even though it’s hard)! I’ve got this!! I stumble daily, but that’s life, right?? 🙌🏼😊
