I thought about my children and myself
I am an only daughter, and I lost my father and my mother within the span of a few years, while they were still in their prime years. When you’re almost 38 years old with two kids, events like this give you food for thought.
I didn’t want the pattern to repeat itself with my children, and I was well aware it could happen if I didn’t take any action. So, in January 2014, I pushed open the doors of a fitness centre known for its professionalism with a strong conviction to rebuild my health. A year later, I lost 80 pounds under the advice and supervision of both my trainer and my nutritionist. Yes, 80 pounds! With resolve, everyone can succeed. I can now play with my children without being exhausted, and I hope I can take care of them for a long time.
