I've had days where I ate that chocolate cake, or enjoyed a night out with friends not knowing what calories or sodium I was consuming. But what changed my journey, is I didn't make it a habit.

I am currently 195lbs lighter than I used to be. I finally hit that point where I had had enough of being fat, uncomfortable, embarrassed, unhealthy, unhappy and in pain. There was no magic wand. I had to be accountable and put in the work. I had to learn to get through hard days, days of celebration, holidays and just every day temptation. I had to choose me over food. It's not easy. But when you are determined you find a way!
