I wanted to share with you some of my story regarding my weight loss journey. On July 29, 2020 I will be celebrating my 2 year anniversary of losing 150 pounds plus. My starting weight was 300 pounds. I am 4ft. 11 in. y’all I suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, depression and the doctors found a spot in each breast that they believed to be suspicious of cancer ( after my weight loss a year later they could not locate the areas in my breast, no cancer) I also suffered from insomnia. I have always had a negative relationship with food. My weight fluctuated all throughout my life. I tried diet pills, fad diets, you name it. I even looked into weight loss surgery. But any type of surgery being morbidly obese was not a good prognosis. But little did I know that I was about to experience the change of my life. On July 29, 2018 I bent down to tie my shoe and came up gasping for air. I just knew this was it. I was dying but I heard a still small voice whisper to me, Are you going to do something about this weight or knock off 5 years of your life? I immediately said I am going to do something about this weight. So I began researching and praying to be lead in the right direction. My mom works with a gentleman whose wife is a weight loss and ketogenic coach. She sent me a cookbook called Simply Keto. It was a wonderful book but I couldn’t afford all the recipes. So, I decided to fast for 3 days and it was tough but I knew it was something I had to do. At the end of my 3 day fast, I lost the desire for sweets, breads, sodas and especially sugar. So I looked into the ketogenic diet. I decided to tweak it to make it personalized just for me. I began drinking water, black coffee, tea (no sweetner) I ate healthy green veggies and protein. But my favorite addition was bullet proof coffee. My exercise was dancing with my kids, niece and nephew. They got some good laughs seeing the fat lady trying to move. I parked my car further out so I could get in extra steps. But there was still something I needed to change. I needed to deal with all the past hurts and regrets. So I began a journey of forgiveness. I started journaling and meditating. And before I knew it my entire outlook on life changed. I decided to return to college after 17 years ( I have a 4.0 average, President’s List) I quit my job as a bereavement counselor and deputy coroner. And decided to focus on life. I asked Spirit to guide me and things just began to fall into place. I realized that my weight was my defense. My protection from the world. Especially being raped at 4 years old by two male relatives. There are still some parts of my childhood I do not remember but that’s okay. I have forgiven them. I said that to say that I experience lessons and blessings each and every day that I am blessed to awaken. I try and enjoy the present and not worry about the past or future. I weight train Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s. On Saturday and Sunday I try to get in a 5 mile run. My most successful thing is fasting. I fast daily but every Wednesday I do a 36 hour fast. It makes me feel stronger and clearer in my thinking. And you know what my son enjoys eating like me and he lifts weights with me sometimes. I will tell you there are going to be some who will not understand your journey and that’s okay. It’s not there’s to understand. Celebrate your own victories. I tell my children be your own best friend. Get to know what you like and don’t like. What you will and will not accept in your life. If you’re not happy with something change it but make sure it’s because you want the change not for anybody else. There is nothing wrong with self love. Sacrifice is apart of life. But oh how great reaching your goal will feel. Im not telling you that my life is perfect. I have my sunshine as well as rain but I just grab an umbrella.
