Sometimes, heck a lot of the time ... I forget exactly how far I have come since 2011. Not only physically but more so mentally. I forget now not because I don't realize the internal and external changes I have created , but because that is a life of the past.
That was another person. At 254 lbs I never thought I could change. I have beyond moved passed dwelling on that past life. When I first made a lifestyle change I was in grad school, after 23 years of being overweight , insecure, anxious, and coping with my emotions with my old pal food , I had had ENOUGH. I lived in fear daily that I would be the next person to develop diabetes, or that I would literally have a heart attack at 23 years old... 23 !! What 23 year old should worry about that ?! After many day 1’s I decided to start eating better and moving. It wasn't easy... I made small changes daily and learned how to better my life. I always had a doubt in myself and a fear that I would gain back any weight lost. Today I thought about that old me. I can say that almost 7 years after I've made those changes and I have maintained my health . I've defied my own odds, I've created the change I wanted, and I continue to grow physically and mentally. Sure it's hard work... every single day, sure I have slip ups, but the long term success is so fulfilling .. If I can do it- so can you! Wether you want an internal or external transformation the first step starts with change. If you are looking for change PLEASE reach out to me... I have walked in similar shoes... I am kicking off a summer health success group on June 25th to start to the summer off right and looking for 10 ladies to join me! I would LOVE to walk you through your very own transformation!
