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!

    May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.
    what a powerful quote at this time

    "Tis a lesson you should heed. Try, try, try again.
    If at first you don't succeed, Try, try try again."
    ~William Edward Hickson

     We ARE doing this. We're doing it right now. Today. Maybe imperfectly but we ARE doing it.
