Just wanted to share a new journey in my life i started just over 2 years ago and if it can hopefully motivate someone else then that would be fantastic. This began with me trying to regain my life back from the personal demons that I had been battling for quite some time. It got to the point that if I did not regain control of my life, I was probably going to die due to my health (morbid obesity - 389lbs, slightly enlarged heart, high blood pressure & pre-diabetic).
So, I began a journey to get my life, and more importantly, my health in order. I got connected with an amazing dietitian who not only educated me so much but held me accountable, which I greatly appreciate. I could not have gotten to this point without her help and support and logging my meals with myfitnesspal.
With all the ups and downs from last year, as well as 2 significant injuries that slowed my progress, I was finally able to reach my 200+ lbs weight loss goal – I currently weight 184. This was not done with surgery or medications but with a lot of hard work & dedication. Exercise and healthy eating became my life and lifestyle, and I am sold on it. I have embraced this lifestyle wholeheartedly and will never go back. I am truly enjoying life again and have never been healthier or happier than I am now. I know this is cliché but if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything.
