No Fear

I've been confronted with some mental and emotional issues during this weight loss journey.  Before I share, I'm so proud to say that I'm now down 75lbs - weight now at 260!

This has been a very long and emotional road.  As you know, it was a fear issue that got me really serious about losing weight.  When I found out back in October that I was pre-diabetic, I was scared!  I knew that I had to get this weight off of my body and stop playing with the fact of doing a "wanna be" weight loss regimen.  The goal was to reverse these diabetic symptoms and stay healthy for life!  I've noticed that even with 75lbs off of my body, I still get symptoms every once in awhile.  I don't want to come to any conclusions until I see my doctor, but I know that I'm fighting hard every single day to do the right thing for my health for once in my life!

Now is not the time to get scared.  Now is the time to get my thoughts together, stay positive, continue to eat right, exercise and stay on my journey for life!  I know that these symptoms will reverse.  I know that I'm getting healthier and stronger every day!  I'm determined!  Yes, I will get my blood tested to make sure my blood sugar levels are okay, but I know that I have to take care of my health!  No one else lives in this body besides me and my maker.

Do me a favor?  Stay healthy!  Do what you know you need to do in life to keep your body strong.  It will not only help you physically, but it will help you mentally, spiritually and emotionally.  It is a blessing!  And what more can you ask for than to be strong and healthy so you too can be a blessing to others!

  1. This is from my dear friend: Kristie Lee Achuff - Always remember "that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".. Keep on keepin' on! You are an amazing woman and I am so glad that I was able to cross paths with you! If you ever have one of "those day" when you are feeling down, or it just seems hard, take yourself to the grocery store and load up the cart with turkeys/chickens that equal the weight you've lost. Push it around and stare at it a minute and know how amazing your transformation is! Love and miss you...
