Davita lost 70 pounds, going from a size 24 to a 14. Sleep apnea, high blood pressure, gall bladder issues, depression and a lack of energy were all affecting her wellbeing. She decided to turn it all around and take action. Check out her story.
My name is Davita and I am 26 years old. So far, I have lost 70 pounds. My weight loss journey began this year, March 30, 2016. After always feeling very tired and not wanting to be active, I knew I had to take another route. I had been diagnosed with sleep apnea, high blood pressure and gall bladder issues. Shopping in stores or at malls was a nightmare for me, because trying on clothes was a struggle. Taking my daughter to the park felt like punishment. I was so depressed, but I knew I couldn’t feel sorry for myself. I didn’t I want other to feel sorry for me either. I did this to myself so I had to fix it.
I spoke positive energy to myself everyday when I looked in the mirror. I went cold turkey on red meat, pop and ALL junk food. I eat fish, chicken, turkey, sweet potatoes and fresh vegetables. I started out walking for an hour on the treadmill each day, as well as using the elliptical machine. Now, I work out 5-6 times a week, 1-2 hours a day.
I started out wearing a size 24 and now I’m in a size 14. My height is 5’9″. I plan on announcing my current weight in a few months, I’m just not ready quite yet. I have seen an improvement in my healthy. I have asthma, but in 8 months I’ve only used my inhaler two times! Also, I no longer need blood pressure medication. Soon, I will be going in to do an overnight test to see where I’m at with my sleep apnea.
Let me just let you guys know that if you are planning on starting a weight loss journey, start today!! You will literally be living in joy, happiness and peace. Believe in yourself and never give up. You will be rewarded with results.
