For as long as I can remember I have always struggled with my weight even as a child. I would lose a little and then gain it back plus a little more. My life has always revolved around my family. Being a single mom with 3 children and now 2 granddaughters, I have always put myself last. Then, I was on vacation and my doctor called to tell me my recent blood work showed my A1C and cholesterol levels were too high. This was a reality check for me to make a change or I would be labeled as a diabetic with a potential of more health issues. Three years post back surgery, I knew I should be feeling better than just OK. For once I decided to put myself first and make changes that would enable me to live a healthier life. I knew this would be an investment, but I finally realized that I was worth it!

Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
When I started my weight loss journey, I felt confident that this was the change I needed. I was so surprised at how simple the program was to follow and that I was satisfied with my meals and did not hunger for unhealthy treats. Being able to walk and not have the tiredness, knee pain or back pain has been a pleasant surprise.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I see myself differently. I actually love the reflection I see in the mirror. I love myself and I don't believe I did before. My family has been very supportive during my journey, especially preparing the right foods at family events. My work family is the best with encouraging words to inspire me that I can do this. My granddaughters are such a beautiful blessing and I enjoy having the energy to run and play with them. I never get tired of hearing my family, friends or co-workers tell me how great I look and how proud they are that I did this transformation for me.
