At my highest weight ever, I had pain in my hips and knees, I was out of breath on stairs, borderline diabetic and on blood pressure medication for two years.
When it comes to food, I love variety and trying new things, but had fell into a pattern of eating the same as my 6'3" husband.
When my daughter got engaged, I was motivated to begin my weight loss journey with bistroMD.
After two weeks on the meals, which I really enjoyed from the start, I had lost about 3 pounds.
I continued losing 4-5 lbs. per month and maintained the loss.
Now, I no longer have to take blood pressure medication and with 40 lbs. down, I'm determined to continue my weight loss journey!
Losing the weight gave me confidence to do more of what I enjoy - especially outdoors.
We celebrated our anniversary in Greenport, Li and did hikes at Orient Point and at Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island.
On a cruise to St. John and Halifax in Canada, we did a hike at Peggy's Cove.
Over time with additional weight loss, these hikes have gotten easier - and more fun!
