Life has a funny way of passing us by. I'm remembering this morning of the journey I started in 2016. I got the phone call at work that my mother was unresponsive, and that she was simply gone. It was the year I was planning my wedding and thrilled to have a proper wedding for a change in my family. My world stopped. At that point I skipped my last period, and thought it was a possible that I could have been pregnant. I cried over my mother confessing that I was not the perfect daughter she always said I was. My church family and future in laws all came together to support me and my siblings in this very unexpected lost. April came and went with no period. I took several pregnancy tests and they were all negative and in May my doctor diagnosed me with PCOS. I had reached at least 285 it may have been more at that point. My doctor recommended birth control to treat the pcos symptoms. By the time my wedding came in September I had lost at least 20lbs. In the three years since I have had many happy moments and moments filled with heat breaking grief. Last year my husband made the choice to change his lifestyle for the better. He will have lost 60lbs in one year. I've been moving g at the pace of a snail. This time last year I weighed around 278, this week I weighed 259.4. After loosing my last grandparent in March I've decided that it's time to celebrate life by becoming the healthiest person I can be spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I'm moving up to progress at the speed of a flying bumblebee.

    Be kind to yourself! You've gone through so much. Slow weightloss tends to stick and fast tends to come back and double. You are doing great. Remember to practice self care and be gentle with yourself. Enjoy the journey of transformation ♥️
