By the time she entered kindergarten Ashley Romano was already binging on food and struggling with feeling unworthy and unlovable. Growing up, she played the part of a happy-go-lucky teenager while regularly and shamefully harming herself in private. As an adult, still struggling with self worth and mental health issues, she eventually found herself 300 pounds, home and working in the sex industry. This is the story of how a seemingly unrelated decision to lose weight and get physically healthy became the catalyst for a total life transformation. Until Recently provides an intimate and detailed look at Ashley’s journey from an existence overwhelmed with hopeness, guilt, shame and depression to living a life bursting with gratitude, forgiveness and self-love.
