Raising Supermom


I’m 28 and I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere with my boyfriend, Superdad and my son, Superboy. I’m 5’4″ and 2 years ago (2010) I weighed a whopping 300lbs. I was killing myself slowly with food.

It took a divorce and a serious injury for me to wake up and smell the cupcakes roses, and make the decision to live a healthy lifestyle. I started moving and eating healthy. To date, I’ve lost over 100lbs and continue to reach for my goal weight of 130lbs. I’ve lost all the weight naturally…without surgery, gimmicks, or diet pills.

I should mention that Superboy has a myriad of invisible disabilities; Autism, Sensory Integration Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, and an unexplainable Seizure Disorder. He’s 4 years old. Imagine what life must be like for him…

Because Superboy has many struggles in his life right now, we have made the long journey to getting him a certified service dog (aka. Superdog) which we got in August 2012 – he has changed all of our lives for the better.

Superdad isn’t Superboy’s bio-dad but he stepped up to the role without hesitation and without so much as blinking at the list of disabilities that Superboy has.
