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!
