Hello my name is Angel and I am a recovering FAD DIET participant. When I turned 40 I took a hard look at myself and I didn't like what I saw. From an active size 6 female to do nothing size 12. I know how I got there and part of it was from medication. The other part was just me being lazy. I tried and constantly failed to lose weight. But I told myself that "at least I tried". I was fooling myself over the years but the mirror never lied. Well, I became fed up with my self inflicted situation. I chose to truly do something about it. I researched and researched and started eating healthier. I changed the way I cooked, the way I eat, the way I completely look at food. I still wasn't exercising but I was taking it one step at a time. Now it was time to start working out. I had tried so much in the past. I just wasn't interested and my weight didn't help. I am not really a people person so having an exercise buddy wasn't an option for me. And now that I had hit a plateau with my weight loss I needed to do more. I am exercising now and enjoying myself. The time alone is for myself and no one else. Meditation. I AM LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. It has been a journey over these several years but it was worth it. I am more comfortable in my own skin. I smile more. I believe in myself again. I AM ME AGAIN...
