Can you believe it? Time has been flying and I'm just trying to
keep up! The fact that we've been packed with event after event
including school and work has made this year fly by so quickly
already. This past weekend we were supposed to visit friends all
the way in Columbus, Ohio, but some plans didn't work out so we had
the weekend at home. It was a blessing!
We were able to enjoy the amazing weather (rain and shine), run
errands, and completely clean OUT our house! My husband and I have
forgotten what it is like to have a normal weekend at home. We
completely took apart our house to clean as much as we could and I
ended up clearing out NINE paper grocery bags of clothes including
things I've never worn!
My current journey to the "WHOLE better me" has been very
emotional. It hasn't only been about saying NO to food temptations

amazing feeling to get rid of all the clothes that are too big and
that I don't ever want to fit again.
I had the opportunity to spend time with two of my closest friends
at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. We walked around the mall for
almost four hours and had the opportunity to catch up. I have lost
the desire to buy anything for myself until I've reached my
"health" goal status. It was an awesome time to spend time with my
friends and I even had the opportunity to talk to them about how
they can improve their health too!
My whole point of this blog about MY health is to encourage you to
take a look at the clothes in your closet. It's not about HOW you
look or WHAT clothes you wear. I'm not trying to sound
materialistic about clothing either. It's about how you FEEL when
you wear the clothes. Do you feel healthy? Do you feel at your
optimal health status? Take a deep look into what your "optimal"
is. Clothes can hide more than what you look like but can end up
masking what you feel about yourself. Are you at the best that you
can be? For yourself? For your family? And lastly for your

this to be an example to my future patients. To be an inspiration.
To be a motivation. What are you going to be to YOUR patients? Food
