I was horrified by the figure I saw on the scale at my first JC consult.
I thanked God I had chosen to come in and make this decision - I had no idea just how bad it had gotten.
I started the program and headed back to see Stef after 5 days.
"3.1," she told me.
Incredulous, I gasped. "Up or down?!"
I was sure that I must have gained weight.
"Down!" she cried.
We both laughed hysterically; we already had a rapport that made me feel comfortable about talking to Stef; she was supportive and friendly, and never made me feel like I was doing anything other than the most normal thing in the world.
I sent the results to a few close friends and my mum, all of them replying with messages of support and congratulations.
I felt so relieved; any doubt I had in my mind was gone and now I knew I would be able to finally save myself - from me.
