I was 489 pounds. On September 14, 2015 I had weight loss surgery but, I also changed my mind on who I thought I was. I started eating a plant based diet. I started walking 20 minutes a day. My doctor said "You have to change who you were into someone you were created to be" so I started thinking diffently. One of my coaches said "You have to have a goal" so, I set my sights on doing a triathlon. Well, last season I did 4 sprints and 2 olympics. I also did 2 1/2 marathons and 2 back to back full marathons. Then last April I completed the Texas Ironman. Its amazing what you can do when you have a goal.
I want to use my platform of my extreme transformation to give hope to others that its never to late to change who you are.
I also would love to help the Ironman Foundation raise money for all the awesome work they do.
