|I am HOME!!!|
Today is my birthday and I have given myself the best present ever. I'm about to say something that I never phantom I would ever say: "I weigh a healthy 125 pounds, muscles and all".
It is by unanimous decision from Dr. Wright (my oncologist), Dr, Maselli (my Internist /Diabetes doctor) Ronni (#myfoodpolice), #KillerKetsy (my trainer) Freddie (my husband), my entire supportive family and ME that I am exactly where I have to be.
For those of you that were starting to get worried about my weight loss, fear no more, I have reached my goal, I have reached my limits. Please know that throughout this journey I have been monitored and guided by both of my doctors as well as other qualified people. I am stronger, healthier and happier than I have ever been.
|Before and After|
My husband said something funny the other day. He said, I feel like I have married two different women without getting divorced. Ha Ha -- So he wishes.
I don't take the negative comments personal because I understand them. I have more or less the same problem, and even though I lost the weight very gradually, it is shocking to those who have not seen me in awhile. Sometimes I don't recognize myself, but it's ME, A healthy ME, and I'm here to stay-- so get use to the new "ME."
I wanted to write about my ups and downs of this journey. Traveling this journey by no means makes me an expert on weigh loss, or health nor I have become a nutritionist or personal trainer. I wanted to share what I have learned and what I am still learning. So here it is!!! "Heavy Girl to Healthy Girl" has been born today - on my birthday!!!! It is no coincidence--I want this blog to commemorate the new Me. I literally feel like I have been born again.
If this blog or my story inspires you, then I am happy to have touched something in you to spark the motivation that is needed for any journey. Don't feel alone. You are not!!
|The LOVE of my Life!!|
Special thanks to the man that stole my heart many years ago, my husband, Freddie. It is no wonder that I adore him. I have traveled two enormous journeys with him at my side. The support and love that he has given me has been AMAZING. I don't think I could have survived through these journeys without him. I love him dearly.
Thank you God for putting all these people in my path and for blessing me the way you have. I am HOME!!!
