In 2012, I began to stop exercising due to on-going pain and dislocation of my left knee from many years of high-end sports (skiing, running, skating, etc.). January 2013 was the beginning of my surgical journey to rectify my kneecap flexion and strength where extensive surgery to all muscle and ligaments in my left leg inclusive of three (3) controlled breaks with screws were required. The 26-week rehab went well but not great. I had gained 25+ lbs. and uncountable inches. My energy was depleted and showed no sign of resurgence. During the process in late May 2013, the doctors were going to add another medication to my regime to alleviate the swelling and poor circulation in my leg. The other medications I had taken were for my blood sugar, cholesterol, and other side effects of the surgery and weight gain.
In June 2013, I decided to get “me” back and do whatever it took to get there. A coworker of mine introduced me to her friend, Desiree, who told me she believed she could help me. Help is an understatement! In 90 days, Desiree not only helped me regain my physical strength but she assisted me to release all of the weight I had gained. In the process, I dropped two dress sizes, started lifting and running at the gym, sleeping through the night, waking up refreshed, and most of all I “wanted” to be in photographs again. My doctors have released me from all medications as my weight and circulation was under control and so was my blood work.
Thank you Desiree for introducing a system to me that fits perfectly into my lifestyle!
