Few years ago I was blessed with my first grandchild, and I remember being so excited about all of the activities and games I wanted to play with him.
There was just one big issue: I was not 140 anymore. I had gained quite a bit over the years.
I could not Climb flight of stairs without getting short of breath so running after my children was out of question.
I did not know what to do…….
I went to the doctor and did all sorts of tests. Doctors told me what will happen if I did not lose extra …. But no one had the clear answer to why I was gaining.
I researched diets, I reached out to a nutritionist, and I tried everything I could think of. But this additional…. just would not go away.
I felt trapped in my own body. I felt sad, and I began to feel depressed.
I wasn't able to move the way I used to and l couldn't do any activities with my grandchildren.
I was feeling hopeless and distanced from my family.
My struggles seemed never-ending until I ran into a fellow grandma at the grocery store. She told me about a simple daily "ritual" and I decided to check it out.
It was time to break the endless cycle of hiding in oversized clothes and feeling miserable….
I wanted to feel comfortable in my own skin. I wanted to reclaim my healthy self back.
I wanted to ride bikes and do all kinds of fun activities with my grandchildren.
