In August 2007, at the age of 42, I had reached my highest weight of 195lbs. I suffered daily with joint pain, acid reflux, lack of energy and shortness of breath. I was becoming depressed and knew that something had to be done to regain control of my life. This is when I decided to join a local weight loss clinic. Through perseverance and determination, I lost 55lbs in 4 months and have maintained it in a natural way ever since. I feel amazing, younger and more determined than ever to live my life to the fullest!

Through my own research and attending informative health seminars over the years, I have managed to find ways to live a healthier lifestyle. I have an organic garden, have introduced juicing and cleansing to my regular routine, I eat a plant based diet (sometimes organic meat), I prepare my meals on week- ends as well as incorporate daily exercise into my routine.

I have also learned that it is very important to work on the spiritual and emotional side of things as well. I always try to have a positive outlook on life, I stay away from all negatives. I try to breath, relax and feel grateful for all that I have. Because I have so much energy now, I can keep up to all family activities which is very important to me.

I have learned to deal with my ailments the natural way, which is a huge step in the right direction. This new lease on life has truly given me the knowledge needed to help others struggling on a daily basis. I feel very privileged to have had a second chance at a better life filled with health, happiness and an abundance of knowledge that will help keep my family healthy and around for a long time to come.

In health...
