  2. Hi Wendy, I feel like I know you already through our dear friend in common, Brynn. I’m cheering you on from way over here. Forgive those who have called you names and discouraged you. Break the cycle. You will overcome. You are changing your life already! I’m excited to see your journey continue!

  3. Wendy, this is the first time since I have known you, that you have allowed yourself to really come to accept the painful reasons behind your struggle with weight. I was in tears right there with you. Verbal and emotional abuse from both your Father and Mother runs deep. I finally can see how much it has effected you through your whole life.
    About succeeding in life…..you have done that with shinning colors. My walking encyclopedia! Have a question? Don’t know something? Ask Wendy! When you set your mind to something, your heart is with it too. That is a wonderful quality.
    I think you have scared yourself into surrender. Victory is just around the corner. You have inspired me once again…..you always do.
    Loving you, Brynncess
