Im so excited to be apart of this awesome journey. I have had weight issues for the most part of my life. As a teenager, I battled with anorexia and bulimia. I married my high school sweetheart and Steve has never said anything negative about my weight. His moto is,” just buy bigger clothes”.
God has blessed me with a wonderful husband, but his moto hasn’t worked so well for me. We have two teenage boys, 17 and 15. As we all know, life with children is fun, challenging and rewarding. I have always said my greatest accomplishment is being a mom. I love it. Anyways, over the years I have had so much weight to pile on and I didn’t even realize it.
Life gets busy, and I have put myself on the back burner. My oldest son has Crohn’s Disease so Im always worried about him. In 2014, I lost one of dearest friends. She had gastric bypass surgery on a Monday morning and passed away that same evening. I’ve never felt such sadness, loss,& pain. Going from talking to someone everyday and thinking you would see them that evening to not at all was more than I could handle. I was in a deep, dark depressed state for a year. I still miss my friend but I know she’s in Heaven and I’ll see her again.
It was at my latest doctor’s appointment that my physician showed real concern about all of my numbers. I never thought at 37 I would hear ” you are pre diabetic, have high cholesterol and considered obese based on bmi”. I came home and cried! I thought to myself, ” HOW DID I LET THIS HAPPEN TO ME, WHAT HAPPENED.” It was an eye opening day.
I was listening to His Radio and heard the advertisement for Rob’s Big Losers. I immediately applied and uploaded my comparison pic of what I looked like in 2006 and present day. I was mortified at what I saw. I can not wait to get started with our workouts and nutritional information sessions. I feel like this is an opportunity for a new lease on life and I am 110% determined to get back to my old self, my happier self. I do not like the person I see in the mirror and I cant wait to watch that person fade away. I am looking forward to getting to meet and know the team members and developing lasting friendships through this experience. ❤
