Weight Loss in Spite of Sadness

Thursday, December 13, 2012

To say the last 17 months has been hard is an understatement. I have had to experience obstacles and sadness like I never thought I would.

July 2011: My great aunt passed away
1 year: Struggle to survive
May 2012 : Broke my ankle
June 2012: My mom had to have surgery
July 2012: My mom and I lost our house due to a fire
August 2012: Lived in hotels
September 2012: Moved to a new city
September 30, 2012: Shattered my knee, had to have 2 surgeries and not able to walk
October-present: Still can't walk for at least 2 more months.

Despite all these obstacles, I have lost 75 pounds! I started with the P.I.N.K method. It jump started my weight loss. I gradually weaned off and I have been on portion control since.

For me, I gain weight when I am depressed. I stuck to it and it paid off. I never gave up faith and hope. I know there are many struggles in life, and my heart goes out to all suffering through sadness and tragedy emoticon

Happy Holidays!
