May 2017, I decided it was time for me! I went to Vegas with my sister-in-law Jill, looked around the pool with our fellow friends and realized everyone there was older than me and hotter, healthier and happier than me. I’ve never been the type to feel bad for myself when I’ve gained weight. My outside didn’t match my inside and I was going to do something about it. I knew I needed to be accountable and have a support. I contacted Angie Dawn Call, owner of Total Body Wellness. She was a good friend to my sister-in-law and we had a great conversation at the pool. So, the Thursday following my trip home I would begin my path to get back to me! I came home and was very determined, disciplined and ready to be fully committed to my wellness. I told my family I’m coming first! If you want me to be here for you, I’ve got to take care of myself. With lots of encouragement from my husband and kids Since May 5, I lost 55 pounds and went from 38.8% body fat to 27.8% and couldn’t feel better! Happy, healthy and full of energy! A brand-new life and relationship with food. They taught me how to eat and not starve. It wasn’t always easy but so worth it. I’m so glad I took photos all along the way, because I never want to take for granted all the hard work I’ve done and choose to do every day!
