“I started trying to lose weight at the end of 2018. I was 312lbs and didn’t even realize I had gotten that big. My blood pressure was out of control and even with me taking 3 medications at age 28 it could not be maintained to what is considered “normal”. I wanted to be there for my daughter and not develop more issues so I began small with just a walk and actually playing with her at the park. Then I slowly moved into actual workouts.
A quarter of the way into my journey I hit a stall and didn’t want to keep going and felt defeated. I then realized that not only did I have to take care of my physical health , but I also had to take care of my mental health. Once I began to address all aspects of life my weight loss became less difficult and I started to enjoy working out, I even began to lift. Today I am down over 100lbs and my bp is finally under control.”
