My journey began at 200 lbs with a goal to lose a total of 70 lbs.

Initially I lost about 40 lbs. In Jan 2017, I injured my shoulder and foot in an accident leading to steroid injections, surgery and physical therapy. Recovery was slow; I regained a lot of weight and developed other health issues that further impacted my progress. In 2018, a check-up revealed that my BP and cholesterol were also dangerously high.

Determined not to live on meds, I decided to focus on lifestyle and dietary changes. Join me on my journey to health!

    Have a happy day.
    Its physically less exhausting to smile than to overwork yourself with frowning.
    So why subject yourself to more work.
    KEEP SMILING, emoticon

    Sunday is a time when you sit back and reflect on all the blessings that you have received. Smile at all the good things that you are enjoying.

    Why is it that so few people view themselves w/a sense of wonder . . . awe . . . enchantment? It is the result of the socially-induced delusion of “not quite good enough”. Sara Maria
