Transformation Tuesday this picture on the left was the first Time I realized how fat I had gotten. I have always loved myself and the skin I was in . But I knew I had to make a change for the better. I start slow and kept going no diets or quick fixes. Just hard work eating healthy and working out. A year and half later I’m not only mentally but physically I’m in such a different place than I was back then. I thank God , my son ,my Doctor and friends who encouraged me to do better. It’s life Style change that you have to dedicate yourself to . If you want it you can achieve it.
