Enough Is Enough

Hi Dr. Laura:

I first heard you 25 years ago when I was 15.  My mom used to listen to you, but she never took heed of your advice on how to be a good parent.  She was cruel and not loving.  I grew up being called fat on almost a daily basis.  I was never fat when she called me that, but when I moved out at 20 years of age, one of the ways I got back at her was by finally eating whatever I wanted and actually getting fat.  I got up to 291 pounds!  Two years ago, I decided enough was enough, but I wasn't doing the work to get my weight down.  

Then I "re-found" you right here on SiriusXM, and I've been hooked ever since.  I can't begin to tell you how much you've changed my life.  I've learned from you that it's okay to realize you don't have a "Mommy."  I've also learned it's NOT okay to be fat.  I am down 100 pounds and am headed toward my goal (30 pounds more).  I walk 5-7 miles every day listening to you.  I've cut out soda, sugar, and I dance and do Zumba.  I think the weight has melted off because I finally feel like I have a Mommy - YOU!    I finally feel at peace.  

I know I still have a long way to go, but I will get there.  There's no more "trying" in my life - there's just "doing."  Years of therapy didn't provide one one hundredth of what you have given me in the last year.  Thanks for being my biggest inspiration ever.  You are a national treasure.  



Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email!  Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
