I was smiling in my before picture, but I wasn’t happy at all. I left school, worked a job I hated, and was in a toxic relationship. 2 years later, I lost my parents a week and a half apart (Mother lost her battle to breast cancer. My father had a heart attack. He died on the day of my mother’s funeral). From that point, I was numb. August 2015, I attempted suicide. I knew I hit rock bottom. I wanted to live. I started going to therapy. I quit my miserable job. I started working out and eating cleaner. I left my toxic relationship. I’m back in school. I fell in love with myself. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come. I still have my down days, but I continue to fight. I choose peace. I choose happiness. I choose to live.

 Purple shirt is 1/2016 to 5/2016 about 20 pounds difference.
Gray shirt was taken a year prior so 1/2015 to 1/2016 a 35 pound difference. I used to be ashamed my weightloss is taking so long, but my mottos now: “slow progress is better than no progress”. As of August 22 I am down 65 pounds, let me add I have a lot going on w/ my healthy physically and mentally, so don’t ever feel like you can’t do it. 

Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue & osterarthritis came along during my journey none have stopped me, but it just add spices things up! I am 5'2. My highest weight in the 1st gray pic was 260 I’m currently 195 w/ -35 pounds to lose for my 1st goal. I do not eat below my BMR, I lift on average 4 times a week and cardio 3-5 times a week depending on my level of pain and fatigue!

Bit of a transformation Tuesday, no one has ever seen the photo on the left. I took that photo In November 2009 at Hoover Dam and this was when I was my biggest weight of 242 pounds, then the right was taken yesterday weighing in at around 195 pounds. 

I am so close to my savings goals so that I can head back over to America this year and revisit all the places and retake all the photos that I’ve never been able to share as well as take many many many more photos!
