As a teenager I’d always been skinny, but some time around my mid 20’s my weight began to grow. By 2008 I was my heaviest weight. 214 lbs. I was diagnosed a type 2 diabetic in August 2008. My fasting sugar was 300. I was put on Metformin. I battled my disease for several years. In Spring of 2015 I decided enough was enough. I didn’t want to take any medication. I wanted to be healthy. I started counting calories using an app.
And I started walking daily. Walking led to running. My weight dropped fairly quickly and within a couple of months I was able to stop taking Metformin. I’ve been drug free for 2 years now; I’m maintaining my weight loss and my fasting sugar numbers are averaging in the 70’s to low 80’s. I’ve turned my health around and my passion now is to help others do the same! You can follow me on Twitter @4paths2wellness. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We moved to central NJ in September 2016 from Staten Island, NY and we love it here!
My formal background is I have an A.S. in Biology and B.S. in Health Services Administration. I worked in the healthcare field as an Accounts Receivable Manager for 16 years. Once I realized that I would always work for the other person unless I did something about it, I looked for ways to put my passion into helping others.
My passions in life is helping others. I love children and animals and try to find ways to help in stopping their abuse that sadly goes on today. Since I know the pain of infertility, I am on a mission to help other women who are going through this or have gone through it. I also have finally in my late 40’s lost 75 lbs and went down a total of 5-6 pant sizes. Sure, it was a lot of determination and will power and sticking to watching what I ate and working out, but I did it! I hope to inspire other women!
I am a vegetarian for over 25 years and try my hardest to eat vegan at home. It is because of my love for animals that I became a vegetarian. I like to read, dance and be silly at times and spend time meeting other like-minded people. I am married to my best friend, Dave, for 12 years. I have great faith and thank God for all His blessings.
