Since October 24th 2013, date of my gastrectomy, I have now officially lost 50kg (110lbs) - This has been and still is a hell of a journey. During that journey, I have felt motivated, frustrated, happy, sad, amazing, even about to give up thousand of times. And despite some people thinking that surgery is the easiest way out to lose weight, I can assure them that it was a tough decision to make: But I did it and this was the best decision I have ever made! I am still not right THERE, physically and mentally, but I am on my way: I have learnt how to eat again, the basics of nutrition (I have got LeanIn15 to thank for that.) and exercise, how to accept & love myself for what I am and hopefully inspire others with my journey but also the classes I daily teach. I want to become an example: If I have done it, so can anybody out there! There is no easy way to become what you want : Only commitment, time and the will to conquer will eventually get me there. You might see on social medias that I regularly post selfies of myself: More than just a "show off" or to be the center of attention, it is for me a therapy to help me understand what I am becoming but also accepting the changes that are happening to me. I am also hoping that this journey will inspire others whenever they need that extra boost. Your comments, your likes give me the strength to keep going and even if, at the end of the day, I am doing this for myself and my health, I have got you to thank for reminded me that I can do it. Zumba Fitness has obviously been playing a great deal in my "new life" and introduce me to exercise, like lots of people. I am so thankful to be able to teach this amazing program, that also allows me to meet amazing students & instructors and even travel when possible. This is only the beginning for me and I am looking forward to seeing what the future has got for me... Don't dream it, be it.
