I have tried over the years to get to a healthy weight, but it always seems that life gets in the way. As a wife and mother, we women always seem to put the needs of others before our own. Well my life has changed. I saw the calendar creeping up on me and was tired of always wanting to eat healthy, but my body not going for it. I put myself first this time. I went to the Dr. who, after a bunch of tests, told me I had a metabolic disorder, which means my body doesn’t really know what to do with all those carbs I was eating. I was told to go on a low carb diet and it would solve my problems, and of course help me to lose weight.
I met with Tricia and when she told me about the program, I thought this is perfect, just what I was looking for. That was a year ago. I remember because I went to the fair the same week and purchased a new belt for my work uniform. I told the vendor that I just started a weight loss program and to make sure there were plenty of holes so I could get the most out of the belt. He told me to come back in a year and he would fix it up when I lost my weight. Well I had to add four holes myself before I could get back. This picture is of me on the day I went back to the fair. The vendor cut off 6 inches at the end of the belt and added 4 more holes as my journey is still continuing. Once again, he said come back next year and we will do it again. And you may ask, how is that metabolic disorder? Well it is completely under control! I still have about 10 more pounds to go to reach my goal but the journey has made such a difference in my life.
Thank you Tricia and all the Healthy Inspirations team for you support and encouragement!
A healthier and happier,
