I went on a vacation to Florida in March 2011, and obviously took some pictures. When I went to post the pictures on Facebook, I couldn't believe the way I looked.
I'm 49 and I felt like I had totally let myself go. I never had a perfect body, but couldn't believe how "round" I had become. I had been to the doctor, found out my cholesterol was through the roof, I was diagnosed as diabetic and my body was basically falling apart. But seeing myself in the picture from vacationing in Florida is where I finally "saw" how I was going along the path of destruction.
It was at that moment, that I decided to join Transformation Nation, and get on the OZ bandwagon. I've been through many things in my life, and felt now was the time to finally start "living." I joined Weight Watchers, got weighed in, and then joined Curves. I've been to Curves a total of 179 days so far. I've lost 19 inches and almost 15 pounds. I still need to be on cholesterol medicine, but I am no longer considered diabetic. I have curves that I've never had...not even as a teenager!
Thanks to Dr. Oz, for caring so much about our health, partnering with Weight Watchers, and helping us all to achieve our goals!! I have posted my body transformation on Facebook as I've progressed over the last year. I joined Curves on June 8, 2011 and I have become a great advocate for "if you put your mind to it, you can do anything!" That goes for women of all ages, all body types, all health concerns. At 49, I am more fit, have more energy, and look better than I ever have. I am loving life, and inspire others to do the same.
p.s. Just Do It! ♥
