Perspective Shift

I read something the other day that I absolutely loved. 


Absolutely! People often think that after weight loss surgery our restricted diets are a problem. Limiting sugar, fat, and carbs can seem pretty daunting as is eliminating junk food and fast foods from your diet. I know I didn’t think I could do it at first! 

Over time things change. Your perspective shifts and so do your priorities. Now, what seems restrictive to some is just life to me. It isn’t a diet as much as it’s simply a typical day in my world. It becomes second nature almost like it was always there. You can develop a new instinct

There is life after cake, there is joy in zucchini, and a simple perspective shift can make a huge difference in your long term success. Strive to make your “can’t haves” into your “don’t wants.” Stay focused and I swear it will happen!

She’s active in her church, sings on the praise team, and is amazed every single day at how God has totally changed her life. Formerly 425 lbs she’s battled her weight for 30 years until RNY Gastric Bypass surgery in December 2014 where she lost 250 lbs and gained a new lease on life. She wants to share with anyone who thinks that they MIGHT be interested in surgery and knowing the real truth behind the surgery since there are a lot of misconceptions and fears. Deciding that she needed a challenge to continue with her weight maintenance she decided to embark on running the NYC Marathon in 2016 on Fred’s Team for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Like so many people, her life has been touched by people affected by cancer. Discovering that her friend of over 25 years was diagnosed with breast cancer she had even more inspiration to run. On November 6, 2016, she completed the grueling 26.2 miles through all five boroughs of New York City and realized her 20 year dream of completing the largest marathon in the world. This blog will travel with Regina as she laces up her shoes and continues to challenge herself while sharing stories of her life and the people who have been an influence on her over the years. You’ll find stories, recipes, crafts, photographs of the wonder that is Little Rhody and countless photos of her tiny pups Sid Vicious and Taxi Fitzgerald.
