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!

    Be thankful. Record positive experiences and things you are thankful for in a journal. Read your own words during times when you feel down to remember how fortunate you truly are.

    "Life is a dance of balance. Life is creative falling. Life is half spent getting back up.
    Life is learning how to dance without a partner. Life is a twirl and a bow.
    Life is a freestyle jig. Life is the best dance you've ever danced." emoticon

    "Autumn paints
    in colors bold
    the leaves of red
    and orange
    and gold
    They blaze
    along my route
    a trail
    to guide me.
    over hill and dale.

    We flash them, we smash them.
    We push them way up.
    We shake them, we stuff them
    In the wrong sized cup.

    Our boyfriends/husbands just crave them,
    Our children have drained them.
    Some of us have even decided to name them.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    We go through our lives and knock them about.
    But one thing is certain, one thing I must SHOUT!
    Our boobies have been there through thick and through thin,
    And life is too precious to let cancer win!
