May 2021 to May 2022 – Cardio and Keto

I went shopping yesterday for an upcoming vacation, and I tried on the outfit on the right. I didn’t get it because I felt like it didn’t look good on me because my thighs are too “thicc.” 

This morning the pic on the left popped up in my iPhone memories. I remember taking pictures of my children in Hawaii and a stranger walking up and asking, “Do you want one of all of you?” 

I usually would always reply, “No, we are good. Thank you.” However, I hesitantly said yes this time because how could I not capture this priceless moment with my kids? Little did I know the pictures this stranger took would be a major catalyst for me that changed my life. 

I remember thanking the lady, taking my phone, looking at the pictures she took, and thinking, “Who is that woman standing with my children?” I knew I had gained weight but seeing myself in the photos was shocking.
