Hi everyone!!! My name is Donna and I am so excited to be sharing my life with you the next 90 days. Oh believe me, excitement is not the only emotion, but here we go!!
I am a true Texan – Born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I am proud to be a Texan. I now live in Lewisville where I raised my two daughters. I am very much a family person – I love being with my grown daughters, their husbands and my beautiful grandchildren – 2 girls and 2 boys. They are all my heart throb.
I have been blessed with a healthy life. My only struggle has been my weight ever since I had children at 20 years old. Yes, I have done a lot of the fad diets and yo-yoed up and down with my weight. I remember always saying – OK, will get it off for sure by 30, then by 40, then by 50 and here I am at 60’s door and I am still carrying too much weight. The difference now is my strength. I have noticed how weak I have become.
After doing the HCG diet and losing over 30 lbs in 2011, by the end of 2012 those 30 lbs were back and more kept coming on. I didn’t understand what was happening. I talked to a nutritionist that works for doctor up north and she said that with the HCG diet I had messed up my metabolism and it would take up to 4 years for my body to recover. I wasn’t settling for that – I had to get moving and get help. I found TUF on the internet on Labor Day Weekend and decided to swallow my pride and attend some classes. Well the rest is history! I am sure you will hear me say this a lot before the end of my 90 days – this gym is KIND!!! Everyone – the staff and clients. So encouraging!! I love TUF gym already – lots more to come!!!
My mom lived with me the last 10 years of her life and my dad was with me too. They lived to be 86 and 93 and my motto with them was one a doctor in the nutrition business told me once – “People are not living longer – they are dying longer. Vow to live a long QUALITY life. Our best quality is our health”
Let’s do this!!!!
