THIS is what it is all about friends. Changing lives! Loretta's story is so motivating and inspiring...

"Some of you may or may not know this, but I a couple of months ago, I was at a rock bottom. I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, severe migraines and thyroid disorder. I was preparing to have hysterectomy surgery due to some female issues, however, I was at the end of my ropes when it came to my health. But that all changed when someone very special encouraged me to take a chance.
I had been following a friend’s health and fitness journey here on Facebook. I saw the success she was having, and while skeptical I reached out to her to learn more.
After talking with her for a bit I decided to give an online health challenge a chance. I started exercising daily to a super fun country dance program and was really watching my nutrition. I also incorporated an all-natural whole foods meal replacement shake which has helped me decreased my cravings tremendously.
While this was a new way of living for me, I was determined to succeed. I showed up every day and gave it my best. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my coach, challenge group, and family. I am happy to report to this date that I am down 17 lbs. and 31 inches since beginning in February 2017.
I did all of this despite the business of being a wife, mom, private care assistant and student. I did it so I could be healthier and a better version of me!
I still have a major goal I am working towards and that is to be 150 lbs. by my 40th birthday on March 25, 2017. I am completely committed to this goal and I am also committed to helping others begin their journey."
Wow, wow, wow! Life changing stuff here friends!

Post-Op and Recovery Update

Tomorrow will be one month since the removal of the GIST (Gastro-intestinal stromal tumor) in the lining of my stomach.  Quite a few people have been reaching out to see how I've been feeling and for an update on what's next. First off, the surgery went well.  My surgeon only had to make one incision in the mid-line of my abdomen, because as he started to cut, the tumor was visible immediately.  He said I was a "surgeons dream" since there wasn't much to cut through!  My pain was controlled well post-op and I did not have near as much nausea from the pain meds as I did from the lung biopsy.  They made sure to stay on top of giving me anti-nausea meds and even put a scopolamine patch behind my ear pre-op.  I stayed in the hospital for two nights and then was able to go home.  Recovery went well with no complications.  Over the last month, I've had a lot of emotional ups and downs.  Waiting on the results from the pathology on the tumor was difficult.  O

Surgery Update

If you read my last blog post, I left off with that I was home from my lung biopsy recovering and that the preliminary results showed up as "Organizing Pneumonia".  They did confirm that on the pathology, so my lungs are cancer free!  Praise God! I met with my Surgical Oncologist, Dr. Jeffery  Hardacre which let me tell you is one amazing man.  Not only does he seem highly qualified to care for me, but he has an incredible bedside manner.  He took his time to explain everything to my husband and I and answered all of our crazy questions.  I feel very confident in his hands and he seems to be very optimistic about things.   I am scheduled to go into surgery with him tomorrow for the removal of the gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).  If you haven't heard of this type of tumor, it's not your typical "stomach cancer".  Stomach cancer actually grows inside your stomach and could be a lot worse than a GIST.  This tumor is in the "wall/lining" of

Make Every Day Count

I woke up Tuesday June 18th of this year not feeling right.     Every time I stood up I felt light headed and nauseous. I thought to myself, “here comes baby number 3” and laid back down in bed.     If you know me well, then you know I sent my husband to the store to get a pregnancy test.     I am always taking those things with the slightest inkling that I might be pregnant.     When I saw the test was negative I was surprised.     As the day went on I became more light headed, and my heart was racing just walking from room to room.     This was so far from my norm, so I decided to go to the emergency room.     The doctors ran a few different tests and found that my hemoglobin level was 8.1.    For those of you who don’t know what hemoglobin is - it is the oxygen carrying component of red blood cells. The normal range for a female is 12-15.    This explained my symptoms, but we weren’t sure of the exact cause.    You also don’t normally get a blood transfusion until your leve
