Weight loss journey

So many days I wake up and I don’t feel like doing a workout but I do it anyway. Why? It’s because I see the results. I understand the power of change. After losing over 65 lbs, I realize that it changed my life. People started to respect me more.I started to respect myself.  I was no longer an invisible woman. I finally started to feel heard. I finally started to feel honored ( high respect or great esteem).

You may say ask me why I feel this way. I feel as if I was hiding behind the weight for decades. I was not accepting accountability for my own life. I was not owning up to being morbidly obese. I was not owning my cues for health problems. I was told I was prediabetic, hypertensive, on the verge of congestive heart failure, diagnosed  with right knee osteoarthritis and asthma. I had so many illnesses, it was only a matter of time before I would be gone. I “had” to make a change. Fast.

Last June 2019, I made a decision to do something different. I decided to hire a trainer/ coach. It has changed my life. I have  been able to sustain my weight loss. I have owned up to making better food and drink choices. I monitor everything I eat. I understand my value as a woman now. I understand the value of good health. It’s all about making a decision and sticking with it. If I can do it, so can you!
