Just the Facts

Can I share some quick facts about me? Thanks! ;)

What the Facts WERE:
  • Overweight and 100% inactive
  • Heart surgery that's almost 40 years old
  • Pacemaker/Defibrillator for 10 years
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, & Fibromyalgia
  • Constant fluid on my left knee for over 10 years
  • Inability to climb stairs without pain or hanging on to the walls.
  • Coke addict, using 5-6 times a day . . . and I mean the red can kind
  • Multiple medications including pain killers & muscle relaxers
  • 1-2 hours of wobbly walking first thing in the morning due to stiffness/pain
Some of those facts are still true. 
Some will never go away. 
But there are some I have kicked to the curb and shattered sledge hammer style!

What the Facts ARE:
  • Down 15 pounds total; 8 pounds AND 8 inches in just the last 30 days thanks to being part of a Challenge Group on Facebook!!
  • Can walk 3 miles without stopping
  • 100% off Coke, pain killers, & muscle relaxers
  • Zero pain on my knees and feet
  • Zero fluid on my left knee
  • Working out daily using PiYo IN ADDITION to walking
  • Eating healthy and drinking Shakeology once a day!
  • Feeling AMAZING
  • Crazy energy

And this is just the beginning!

What the Facts WILL BE:
  • Drop 50 pounds total
  • Ride bikes with my kids
  • RUN a 5K in November
  • Climb Pinnacle Mountain with my family
  • Inspire others to make life changes
That last one I'm leaving blank because I'm not through dreaming!

The best is yet to come!
