Oh heyyyy, new friend!!
I’m Tess. Wife to my high school sweetheart; mama to six kids; professional writer, and wellness advocate. I’ve turned my life around by changing the way I think about food and I know that you can do that, too! Once upon a time I was highly addicted to sugar. I kept begging for bloodwork because I was CERTAIN that I had diabetes or a metabolic disorder. I felt terrible all the time; I was sick, lethargic, suffering from PCOS, and had no motivation to change. I just craved sugar and carbs 24/7. In fact, because of my despair and inability to lose weight…I just kept eating! My emotions were puffed out with food every single day. I thought my daily calorie-free 44oz diet soda from the gas station was an acceptable way to deal with my stress, not realizing that while I was trying to keep my mind, body, and soul in order – I was wreaking havoc on it at the very same time.
