Hello! My name is Reyna. Welcome to my blog!
I hope you will stay awhile and check out this amazing journey I’ve been on. The picture on the left was me in 2001. I was only 20 years old. It was taken nearly 16 years ago right before I underwent RNY gastric bypass surgery. After my surgery, I not only continued to struggle with my weight but my overall health and immune system started to diminish more and more, year after year. I knew the surgery would make me lose weight, I had no idea it would also make me lose my health. Suddenly I went from worrying about what weight I was to worrying about when I might end up in the hospital again.
I started reading books, doing research, watching documentaries and listened to the testimonies of people who had radical healing in their lives. That’s when I knew.
After years of battling my weight I finally figured out what I needed to get my health back.
A whole-foods, plant based diet.
Once I fully committed to a whole-foods, plant based diet my whole world began to change for the better. I am now full of energy, my skin and hair are radiant and the weight stays off effortlessly.
I want to share my journey with you. I want to show those of you who’ve had bariatric surgery that it is not only possible to thrive on a whole-foods, plant based diet but it’s the ideal way of living life to reach optimal health!
Change can be hard. But its much harder living a life of suffering and dying before your time from preventable causes. You have to choose what kind of hard you’re willing to live with.
I’ve made my choice.
Come with me as I share my changes, challenges and victories mastering this way of life. I will share recipes that my husband and two small boys love and anything and everything else in between.
Remember, at the end of the day, YOU ARE WORTH IT!!
