" The Truth But Nothing But The Truth"

“ Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth!”

On a few occasions I have heard comments like “ You have to be taking diet  pills there
is no way you can do this on your own!”. Another comment I have heard is that I went out of
the province and had Gastric Bypass surgery. These two comments are the furthest thing
from the truth! My weight loss has been driven by sheer determination and desire for a
healthier and happier life.
I personally do not believe in any type of weight loss surgery or diet products including
Pills or shakes.. I was taught that success comes through hard work and that is exactly what I have
done and continue to do. I still have a long ways to go but I know I will get there. I know and I am aware that there are people out there that will try to take me down or in other words will try to brake my spirit., But I say to those people... It will not work!!! Nothing and noone will stop me from getting my wings back. The harder they try the harder I will push myself forward!
 That was then ...this is now.. 191 pounds down.
Below are few reasons why I don’t believe in diet pills and having the gastric bypass surgery.
