Reconnecting with goddess the goddess within as I live, learn, and love. Life presents many tests and trials we can’t let them bring us down. We have to take it as a learning experience and build our inner strengths in times of adversity. Writing helps me to connect. My posts come from my heart. I do it to clear my mind. In the process if it helps someone else who may be facing similar issues I am even more grateful. I guess in a way it allows me to live up to my birth name, Monique – advisor.

Magic 81

I weighed myself today and I was so excited to see I had reached another milestone. Last year my lowest weight was 270 pounds. I wanted so badly to make it below the 270 point but life threw me a few curve balls and instead I gained 20. Since then I have taken control, lost the 20 I gained plus more. I am now at 267. I have never shared the actual number of my weight because I was so ashamed but now that I am making progress with losing I am now proud to share my success.

At my heaviest I was 348. That was when I got my wake up call. I promised myself I would not allow the scale to reach 350. Today I stand 81 pounds lighter. Yes it took 5 years but I have learned a lot along the way. I vowed to make this year my year of big loss. I am so happy. I used to dread stepping on the scale but now I absolutely love it.

  1. Good for you!!! I have said so many times how big of a challenge losing or even maintaining a healthy weight is. Especially as we get older and settle into our lives. I know that I got to a point where I just completely lost all motivation. I'm glad that you are reaching your goals and wish you luck as you continue on your journey.
