This picture on the left was me 1 year ago. January 2015. Before that picture I was a healthy happy energetic mom and wife. I got lost. I let life’s stresses and struggles get me down and ended up at 227lbs on my 5’5″ frame. What happened?! How did I go from an athletic strong woman to an overweight person with health problems? Thank goodness last January I decided enough was enough. I took it one day at a time. I stopped stepping on the scale everyday. I stopped saying “I can’t eat healthy it tastes gross”. I stopped thinking “I’m never going to lose this weight” I stopped being embarrassed about what had happened to me and hiding from everyone. I put it out there on my personal FB page and owned it. The picture on the Right was me this week. March 2016.Since that eye opening picture of me last January I have lost over 40lbs. I am still a work in progress but I will come out the other side a better version of who I was before! Never ever give up and always believe in you!
