February 2016, I started a journey to get heathy. Well let’s get real, I started a journey to look better. I was miserable and I was tired of looking and feeling bad. My husband kept asking me what I wanted for Valentine’s Day. What I wanted was to be a size 10 and to feel like being his Valentine! I finally said, “Don’t get me anything. I’m joining Weight Watchers”. I had tried the program many times before and it was always really about the same reason, I wanted to be skinny. I’m quite sure on the day I joined, that my after picture was just about a skinny Mona. I didn’t put much thought into what it was going to take to make that happen for a lifetime. As I began to attend the meetings, I slowly began to change. I’m not talking about weighing less. I began to understand what it really takes to make this last forever. Not just for a vacation or a reunion, for a lifetime! When things started working for me, people began to ask, “How did you do it?” , “How much have you lost.” Then came the magical question, “Will you help me?” I’ll never forget the first time someone asked me that. I was so humbled. Who, me? I’m just a simple girl on the same journey as you. Then it hit me! Just maybe this is what I’m called to do. I believe we are all called to the service of others. Could this be it? As I began to share my recipes and tips with others, I began to realized this is my calling. My true passion is to share my journey. I hope you will find genuine truth and passion as I share with you. My prayer is that you will be blessed and that you can find useful tips and recipes for your journey to a healthier life.
