I’ve been curvy my entire life, and I have NO problem being thick. However, I DID have a problem with being unhealthy, so I did something about it. I’m LOVING my new curves! RWHC presents Ms Kellye Beathea in ” I AM MY VISION CURVES!!”
To everyone asking me about my “secret:” for starters, I don’t keep it a secret! LOL! I had a sleeve gastrecomy in September 2011. My highest was 350, but I was only 18 years old. It was getting to be too much; I FELT unhealthy. I couldn’t breathe well, my joints were KILLING me, and I was on the verge of diabetes.
I got the surgery last year at 21 (I’m 22 now). I’m certainly better than what I WAS, but it is HARD. I exercise about 2-4 times a week (I’m in law school, so the schedule fluctuates); I eat until I’m FULL, not until I’m STUFFED. I take vitamins DAILY (a downside to surgery is that you don’t make as much as your own nutrients anymore, so vitamins are a MUST). I also drink water a LOT more than I used to. I chose this method because I just didn’t want to be in a body in which I couldn’t be my ABSOLUTE, BEST self. The scale number is great, but this journey is ALL about how I FEEL, and—let me tell you—I feel SO much better! I also have an AWESOME support system: my mom, friends, and now strangers! I’m LOVING the love, and know that I LOVE YOU BACK! Seeing your posts, likes, and shares is EXTREMELY rewarding; and to be called an inspiration/motivation is SO humbling! I thank God that I’m able to be a vessel. Thank YOU for sharing this!
