For Christmas 2017 my sister decided to book myself, her and our husbands on a vacation to the Dominican Republic. When I realized I didn't want to go… something snapped inside me… I finally came to my senses! How could I possibly not want to relax and have fun on an all- inclusive tropical vacation? Two words – shorts and swimsuits. How could I possibly relax when I constantly feel like all eyes are on me, judging me! I finally had enough of swollen feet and ankles, sore knees, and being self -conscious all the time. All my life I have struggled with my weight, depression, anxiety and Bipolar Disorder. It took me a long time to be open about my mental health and I finally realized that there is no shame in opening up about the struggles I have faced and what led me to such an unhealthy body. Everyone has a story and I was ready to share mine and face the fact that it if I didn't get healthy now I would continue to live in this cycle of pain and depression!
"I'm healthier not only for myself, but for those around me. My family have noticed not just the weight loss, but the difference in my outlook on life and my new-found positivity. I didn't want to tell my kids to be healthy and not walk the talk. Now I can lead by example and be a role model instead of a cautionary tale! I don't want to be a "skinny girl" or a perfect size 2, I just want to be comfortable in my own skin - and I finally am!"
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
Less than a month after giving up sugar nearly ALL of the inflammation in my joints was GONE! I went from not being able to flex my feet and ankles at the end of the day to feeling NO PAIN! All the extra weight was only part of the problem, the SUGAR was the main problem!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
Being able to grab clothing off the rack and not dread going into the fitting room. I couldn't even face the camera for my before shot in December, now I grin ear to ear when a camera comes out. The confidence that I earned has been overwhelming!
