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!

    " Find your passion.
    Figure out who YOU want to be, what you want to do,
    what inspires you and gets you up in the morning eager to start the day.
    And then figure out how you can get there, what it would take to be that person.
    And then do it.”

    Stand strong
    believe in yourself
    Chase those dreams.

    Peace you will find it where the heart is
    And the heart is where love lives
    And love can always find a way
    Hope is something that reminds us it’s not to late to find us
    One day we may live in peace
