Hello from OKC! Here's my story.
I am 23 and a single mother to a 7 yr old girl here in Oklahoma City. I did not grow up in a cooking family - I grew up on fast food and it was considered a "treat" if my stepdad cooked hamburger helper (no, really) or pork chops and fries covered in shortening. So basically I did not have the luxury of having my parents teach me how to cook however I want to learn how to cook healthy meals for my daughter. I work FT and am in nursing school FT so this past year I have done nothing but eat fast food and have gained about 40 lbs. I just took a leave of absence from school today to get myself refocused as I was drowning with my schedule - I worked 7p-7a, went to school from 8a-4p, then had to stay up till 9p with my daughter.
Anyway, now that I wrote a book LOL, with this time off I figured it'd be great to get myself healthy with preparing good meals for us and going to the gym. Can't wait to meet y'all!
