What was the catalyst that sparked your lifestyle change?
When I was in class we had to weigh ourselves. When I saw the number 245 pounds a part of me died. I couldn't believe I let myself gain that much weight. Ever since that day , almost a year ago, I vowed to myself that I would take control of my life.

Take pictures ! Don't just rely on the scale for profess. Don't give up! I had so many setbacks but I kept going anyways. If you mess up that's okay. This journey is for the rest of your life. Enjoy the process. Trust the process. Embrace the process.
