The Mom I Have Always Wanted to Be

My name is Chelsey, and this is my Before to Beyond Story…

I have struggled my whole life with self worth, which played a huge role in my mental health. Food was my “friend” and is what I turned to when I needed a “feel good.”

I tried every diet, from low carb to no carbs at all, to liquid diets, to starving my self and binging it all back. It consumed my whole life stressing about my diet and then eating more because I was stressed about it. I didn’t like myself at all, and was in a very very toxic relationship that made me feel worthless. The binge eating got worse and worse.

I got pregnant with my beautiful little boy and, even though he is my saving grace, I was pregnant and 340 pounds, the heaviest I had ever been in my life. My husband cheated on me and left me while I was pregnant. My son saved me mentally, but I knew I needed to be healthier for him.

I have gained and lost since then, but I know what I need to do – it’s just sticking with it. ZipSlim® has really helped me stay on track. Life is HARD; mental health plays a huge role in how we feel on the inside and out and I am working on that every day.

I am HAPPY. I may not be at my goal weight yet but I am so happy with ME and who I am. I have grown so much as a person and I know my worth.

My son is my world and to have the energy to keep up with him is amazing. It helps me so much to weigh myself every morning; keeps me motivated and focused.

My family has noticed my mood change since I started ZipSlim®. I have energy and focus to get through the day – I’m a nurse and that huge for me! Patient care is so important to me and I am so much more present for my patients.
