Swipe for THEN & NOW It’s amazing what can change in a year, and to think this was not the beginning of me losing weight. This was on January 22nd. I actually found out I was pregnant with my FOURTH child a month after this picture was taken. During my pregnancy I was extremely sick and dehydrated. I was in and out of the hospital because of it. Hyperemesis Gravidarum is NO JOKE. I didn’t even begin to gain weight in my pregnancy until around my 7th month but I did gain weight, 23lbs to be exact. With my other pregnancies I gained 40lbs each time. At the end of my pregnancy I reached 248lbs. This is my first time admitting that number to anyone besides my husband and mom. I weighed 248lbs! That’s insane to me. I couldn’t speak without being out of breath, let alone do any activities with my kids without feeling like I couldn’t keep up. When I would fall to sleep I would snore so loudly I would wake myself up. I became a mouth breather because I could not get a full breath in when I would lay down at night. This was all happening before I was pregnant as well so these were all consequences of my unhealthy choices. When I had my son in October 2018 I knew I had to change what I was doing. If I didn’t, I was going to end up with diabetes like my grandpa or with a heart attack or stroke from my high cholesterol. No one knows all the nights I went to bed in fear that I wouldn’t wake up. No one. No one knew that I replayed in my mind over and over again, the nurse in the E.R. telling me “this is your wake up call to get your eating habits and life back together before it’s too late” I was fighting for my life. I was fighting to be ME again. October 2018 is when I decided to take back my life. Today I am 61lbs down, and when I say I feel amazing I mean it. I no longer snore, I no longer breathe heavy in between sentences, I can keep up with kids, and I am living an all around better life because of it. Little changes can make a big impact. I just
