Guest Post: Mallory~ A Lifestyle Change for the Better!

Today’s guest post comes from Mallory. Mallory is a huge inspiration for me.  We’re both in a wedding this November, and she is doing a wonderful job at getting in shape for this grand event. 

Please welcome, Mallory.

I am a wife and mother of three children, and like every other mother, mealtime has always been a constant struggle in my home. Living in a city where fast food is a way of life, healthy choices are hard to find, and hard to persuade my finicky children to eat. Nonetheless, I press on not only for their health, but for their future children and so on.

Health and fitness were the least of my worries about three years ago. But, I was at my heaviest after having my third child. I could feel the pounds weighing me down and hated seeing myself in pictures. The turning point came when my husband was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I was scared for his health and how I would live without him if his health failed. That’s when I decided I had to make a change not only for myself, but my entire family.

I found a workout routine that worked with our schedule and started off strong. Working out 6 days a week was tough at first, but we adjusted well. The next hurdle was our eating habits. I cut fast food out completely and began to prep all my meals. I had to think about food as fuel, and wanted my body to have premium, instead of unleaded fuel. Once I changed how I ate along with exercise, the pounds melted off. I was able to lose 32 pounds in two months and maintain it.

As a family, we realized that our health was first and foremost. Instead of looking at the changes we made in food choices as a diet, we chose to look at it as a lifestyle change for the better. As a mother, i needed to teach my children by example how to nourish their bodies. It was my responsibility no one else.  If eating right and exercise can buy us a few more years together, it will be worth all the effort and hard work.

Thanks, Mallory.  Keep up the great job!

    Mallory, it is wonderful to hear you feel good and look good. The man who changed my life was Dr. Russ Bianchi. He formulated moringa for Zija. I was on a lot of medications, overweight and could hardly move around the house. I was not happy. Now I am off all meds, stay away from foods with high fructose corn syrup, asparteme and tons of chemicals. His web page is http://www.russbianchi.com and mine is http://www.rosalindavargas.myzija.com He and I will be glad to answer any questions.
