Health Issues

I shared a "Before, During, After" picture on Facebook yesterday. 

So many sweet people commented that I look like a totally different person now. 

I feel like a completely different person. 

I feel and look so much younger. 
My health problems were really taking a toll on my body. 

I had nasty heartburn every single day. 
There were times that I would literally vomit blood

My emotions were out of control and I was put on 3 different medications. 
I felt like a zombie that was just passing through life. 
They had me so medicated that I quit caring about anything. 

My back was constantly an issue. 
I discovered in May of 2010 that I have three bulging discs in my lower back. 
After a visit to the emergency room, an MRI, and more medications, I was afraid that only surgery would be an option. You wouldn't believe how many times my back has disabled me and left me sitting and sleeping in a chair. 

Over the course of the past year and a half, I have been slowly taken off every medication running through my body. Funny thing is I don't "need" them anymore. 

My first Mother's Day was ruined by back issues.  
My marriage suffered because I cried all the time and was just plain upset about anything and everything.
I stayed sick and I wasted so many co-pays each and every time I hauled my behind to the doctor. 
I stopped enjoying the little things in life and eventually some of the big things too. 
I lost my gallbladder because I didn't take care of myself at all. 


You know what disappeared after the first twenty pounds of weight I lost?
Every single one of my health problems. 

Gone. 

Don't live another moment miserable like I did. 
Life is way too precious to spend it miserable and in pain. 
Don't know where to begin? 

Just email me and we will figure it out together.
