It really is amazing for me to sit and look at these two photos and think about just how FAT, unhealthy and seriously ill I was only 5 or so years ago. When my accident happened in May of 2008 that was caused by my medications I was taking, it truly was a blessing for not just myself, but my family as well, as it was the proverbial last straw, or tipping point.
I'd reached my rock bottom when I realized that because of my bad health I could have seriously harmed or killed my daughter and anyone who'd have been in my way when I was driving and had a seizure like episode and driven my van off the road and hit a big old pine tree. It took the thought of my being the cause of someone's death or pain because I didn't care about myself, to wake me up.
So, that's how it started, and I am certainly not done yet! My new goal weight is 160lbs, and the gym opens soon, so weight training here I come!
Will post updated photos as the summer progresses and I start a new regime in my workouts.
