What was your motivation?
My motivation to start this journey was the fact that my weight was interrupting my daily functions. I couldn’t keep up with my son, who was three years old at the time. I was self-conscious, and I wouldn’t even take pictures. I saw people starting to lose weight on outlets like Instagram and figured it was possible for me as well.
