Wow! It has been 6 months since I have done an update!
Look at me now! In 9 months I have lost 40 pounds and somewhere around 32 inches. I have more energy than ever before. I AM BACK! I am ready to get back on track with my writing. I have missed it so much. My wellness journey has been just awesome. I have met some wonderful people that have given me support in so many ways. I am feeling better than I have ever felt and I am helping others along the way. Thank you Xyngular!
Update July 1/12 Have you ever Wondered......
When You Lose Weight, where does the Lost Body Fat Go?
Answer from Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.
To understand the answer, it helps to remember that fat is basically stored energy. Your body converts fat to usable energy for your muscles and other tissues through a series of complex metabolic processes. This causes your fat cells to shrink.
These metabolic activities also generate heat, which helps maintain your body temperature, and waste products. These waste products ~water and carbon dioxide ~ are excreted in your urine and sweat or exhaled from your lungs.
~end result is a Skinnier, Healthier, Happier YOU!

My daughters a training for a half marathon...so I got the idea in my head to start jogging. That was a big laugh. Every since my car accident jumping and jogging gives me the feeling that I am falling. So I decided to overcome my fear and push through. I read from couch to 5K. So I thought to myself jog 60 seconds, walk 90 sec. ...I can do that. WELL let me just tell you it was not pretty. I could only jog for 30 sec. SAD, I know. Then I worked up to 45 seconds. WOOP WOOP! Hey don't laugh, I am all about celebrating even the little things.
I have gone to the gym 2 days in a row: feeling pretty good, I haven't exercised in years.
|Working those triceps!|
I am now down 3 pant sizes!!!! My goal is to be in single digit pant sizes... 3 more sizes to go. The amazing thing about Xyngular is I am not doing this alone. Thousands of people all over the world are getting healthier from these products. My body is definitely changing but so I my thinking. I am in control and I like it. God has blessed me in every aspect of my life. I want to honor him, but to do that I need to take care of the body He has given me. Sometimes I feel I don't desire all that he has given me.
God is so Good!!!

I love to read and write children's books but my new focus is getting healthy. My journey started April 10th when my daughter decided to take a family photo(the before picture above) and post it on facebook. I saw her post and thought to myself," Oh my gosh.... I look like that!" My perception of myself was quite different. That night I pulled out the bathroom scale and it lied, yes lied on me. There is no way I weighed 190. Well needless to say, I had to do something. To make a long story short, and friend of mine share about some all natural products that were helping people everywhere.
Well I decided to try them. If they didn't work... nothing lost because I was told there was a money back guarantee.
This is how my journey started. I lost 20 pound and 13 inches without even working out. Let me just tell you I feel amazing. These products have changed my life. 15 years ago I was in an almost fatal car accident...leaving me with 2 broken arms, a broken leg and broken hip. Since my accident I have not slept good in years due to hip pain. But now I sleep all night pain free.
Heck! Today I joined Planet Fitness. Well see how long this last. LOL!
