As I've grown older, I prayed for the Lord to improve my memory faculties; this verse came to me.

My journey began at 200 lbs with a goal to lose a total of 70 lbs.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Initially I lost about 40 lbs. In Jan 2017, I injured my shoulder and foot in an accident leading to steroid injections, surgery and physical therapy. Recovery was slow; I regained a lot of weight and developed other health issues that further impacted my progress. In 2018, a check-up revealed that my BP and cholesterol were also dangerously high.

Determined not to live on meds, I decided to focus on lifestyle and dietary changes. Join me on my journey to health!

    Don’t count the days. Make the days count.

    Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.

    Happiness Is Fun
    Happy is as happy does
    When all is said and done
    Truly being happy
    Starts with having fun
    Set those happiness endorphins free
    To flood your stressed out brain
    With lots of happy thoughts
    To relax and ease the strain
    Eat chocolate
    And laugh-a-lot
    Chew chilis hot and red
    Wear bright colours instead
    Keep a dog or a cat
    Try yoga on a mat
    Feel sunshine warm your being
    Seek beauty for the seeing
    Classical music wins by miles
    Exchanging lots of smiles
    That's how to raise your spirit
    Lift your body and your mind
    This daily dose of happiness
    Is a pleasure - you will find.
