We all know what the July 4th holiday represents for our country, Independence Day, also called Fourth of July or July 4th, in the United States, the annual celebration of nationhood. It commemorates the passage of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.

I remember when I was in my own way, I felt ashamed, stuck in my own way. I was 100 pounds overweight and well a picture is worth 1000 words, or so they say.
For me, back then I was living a life that I was unhappy with and I just couldn’t figure out how to change it. I couldn’t think past my pain. I couldn’t find the way out of being stuck in my own mental & physical roller coaster ride.
They say weight loss is all about willpower. I found out that was a lie.
