HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?
When the doctors told me how high and severe my glucose levels were I knew I needed change.

I started off slow. I started eating the right foods (healthier options) and exercising light. I was put on a high protein low carb diet.

Within 5 days I lost 5 lbs. I couldn’t believe it so I just kept at it and started seeing more results every 2 weeks.

Not liking to walk and not being able to wear the clothes that I wanted to wear. With that being said I had to put in my mind that if I wanted change I had to change those habits so I started walking and now I love it
