Some of you who follow my blog know I’ve been on a health journey these last several months.  Being really overweight was definitely hindering my life, taking a toll on my health, and limiting my ability to truly enjoy being a mom.  A couple of years ago I tore my meniscus and ended up with the start of degenerative osteoarthritis and advanced stage chondromalacia (deteriorating cartilage) in my right knee.  It became debilitating.  The excess weight was creating an extremely painful life in so many ways.  I decided to make a change and I was introduced to an incredible health and wellness program that has afforded me the opportunity to lose an incredible amount of weight and has also created a path for me toward optimal health.  It has been life-changing and as of today I’ve lost 87 lbs.  My knee has never felt better, I’m in much less discomfort and pain, I have more energy, and I feel wonderful.  Here’s a before/after picture as of a couple of weeks ago.  I’ll continue posting my progress as I continue my journey.  I still have a long way to go, but I am finally well on my way and I’m feeling fantastic!  Along the way I’ll also be posting some healthy recipes that I have found.

Thanks for coming along for the ride!
