My Weight Loss Story

What is Stopping You From Changing Your Body?

I asked myself this question about 2 years ago. After being pregnant for 2 years in a row, I looked in the mirror one day and I could not recognize myself. I was wondering just who was that person looking back at me?

I then realized, it was me. I was completely devastated with what I saw. Instead of making a choice to continue with what I was doing, I decided to do something about it. The question I asked myself, "What is stopping you from changing your body?"

The answer was quite clear. ME! At that moment I made the decision to change my body. I did it by changing my lifestyle. I changed how I ate, I exercised, and made MYSELF A PRIORITY! I realized that was not a selfish act, it was the best thing for me because I want to be around when my children have children.

I have lost 20 LBS and 23 INCHES! Let me tell you, the feeling you get when you put on clothes and they fall off is indescribable. I actually enjoy shopping again. I now try on size 6 - 8, wow!

I don't work out as much as I would like to, at least in a gym. I get my exercise by chasing my toddlers, they never stop. I did find some sensational, very adaptable products to assist my lifestyle. The Appetizer Diet® Shake and Cookie. They have made me healthier and happier. Healthier because they are made with the highest quality ingredients. They are top notch products with a low price, a lot of times it is tough to find high quality products without paying big bucks. Happier because I can eat COOKIES and still lose weight and my kids really, really like them! 

It's not rocket science, it's making better choices for your lifestyle. If you have decided to make a change to your lifestyle go for it! I will be here for you and support you every step of the way. Life is what YOU make it, so MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY. You will be glad you did, I promise.

Fear, is it stopping you?

Here it is 2:39 am. I am working diligently on getting my inbox cleared, watching nothing of interested, OK you caught me soap opera's, and posting a blog. I have no idea where this will lead, but hey let's find out.

I have had some incredible moments in my life and I find myself reminiscing about some. I have struggled with some fears that have lingered in my mind and I have made the choice to take them on. I have no idea where that will lead me, but I have a feeling of peace knowing that this is the right thing to do. 

I find myself pondering the question, why do we always let fear control our thoughts, actions and decisions in life? How do they have that strange power? How is it we cecum to the power they have? Well I have come to the realization that they only have as much "power" as we give them. So I choose to give them none what so ever. Give it a try, you just might surprise yourself, and open your mind to something more powerful than fear. You could get the success that has been waiting for you to claim. 

Live life to the Limit,
