Today I want to talk about Emilly Pacheco’s weight loss journey.
Emilly Pacheco’s weight loss journey
I did an interview with the Emilly Pacheco, via Skype! WOW, what an incredible story!! I’m sure that many will identify and many will understand a little more about FOCUS and s and what it truly means.
“Mom, why are you not skinny?”
Imagine you hear that from your 7 year old daughter? Emilly’s daughter asked, “Mom, why are you not skinny like my teacher from school?” “That way we can dress alike.” Emilly says it was like a kick in her stomach hearing that… “For me, it was like a punch in the stomach, but also the wake up call I needed to change, my life forever”
Emilly told me that she thought her only solution would be gastric bypass surgery. So she went above and beyond to save the money to get the procedure done. She didn’t have insurance to cover to costs and the doctor said she would need to pay $40,000.00. In her words: “. God had other plans for me” She managed to save the money and when it was all set up .. Life happened and she had a higher priority, and the money was used for something else and she could do the surgery.
Let’s try this “eating clean business”
“I decided to invest my time in re-educating myself on how to eat.” ” Thank God, I had the opportunity to read about Nathalia Teixeira, who once said that the time would pass anyway, so I decided to try it.
A year in a half later Emilly’s hard work paid off! With eating clean and working out hard she eliminated 45kg (99lbs). She went from 267 lbs (121kg) to currently weighing 168lb (76kg) at 5 feet 3 inches tall.
