I have a long history with obesity. I’ve been on many different plans trying to lose the weight but would just yo-yo in the end. Health was becoming a concern, so I thought working out hard would do it. I picked up a hard-core video training program, and was getting fit, but struggled losing the weight, and THEN the car accident happened in 2010. My spine specialists told me I would wind up paralyzed, told me not to pick up my babies, and said the only hope was surgery.
THEN my dad passed in 2011 from complications of heart disease and diabetes.
THEN I was diagnosed with diabetes and suffered from chronic migraines daily! From this grew serious bouts of anxiety and depression, that was leading me down a dark path I wouldn’t be able to recover from if I took the next step: suicide. I was told I would just have to learn to deal with it, as medications weren’t solving the issues.
The weight kept piling on.
Fast forward to 2017. I was on the verge of giving up. I was requiring assistance to walk to the bathroom 20 feet away. I was “prison-bound” by my own house. Medicines weren’t “fixing” me. In November, I met my health coach. She showed me a different way and believed I could have the life I dreamed of: living without pain, free from the emotional prison cell, able to run with my kids and pick them up when they wanted to be cuddled, to spend quality time with my family. To be confident and love myself.
I’m here to say I got all of it! I am free from all the pain, the mental anguish, and I’m able to do more than just run with my kids! My husband got his wife back, and my kids got their mom! In fact, we live a more fulfilled life now than we ever have a history of.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, I’m down over 120 pounds to date, with about 30 to go! I’m excited about the future!
Life is amazing.
