I’ve been athletic all of my life, played several sports, and never thought about making healthy choices because I never struggled with weight when I was younger. However, as time progressed, and I became an adult, my weight fluctuated significantly. I made poor eating choices. I would begin a workout regime, be consistent for a few weeks, and then, slack and fall back into old habits.
In March 2017, my life changed because I changed my mentality. I saw people my age, younger and older, dying for health reasons. So, I made the conscious decision to give up land meat, including beef, pork, lamb, and chicken, but still ate seafood and had already decreased my dairy intake.
Sidenote: You know, I am a Baltimore native and crabs, dipped in butter, gave me life several times per week during crab season, LOL. I was ADDICTED to crab and other seafood. Not to mention my mother’s Baked Macaroni & Cheese!!!
Anyway, in April 2017, I joined Rev Cycle Studio and did spin classes 10-12 times per week. In less than one year, I dropped 60 pounds. In July 2017, I became Vegan and my life continued to change and transform.
