Her life became a misery. She couldn’t walk properly let alone handle daily chores. Even the smallest activity became almost impossible to handle.
Her ways of life and lifestyle weren’t making her situation any easier and she felt that enough was enough. She was going to take a new path in life.
Once in a Lifetime Incident
What Madelyn didn't know is that she was about to confront one of the most humiliating and heartbreaking situations of her life. Nothing could prepare her for what was about to come.
Not only was the incident disgracing and shaming, but it was mostly her response that turned this story into one to remember.
How Did It All Begin?
To fully understand Madelyn's horrific experience, we must go back a few years, prior to the incident we'll later detail. What happened back then was about to have a direct influence on future happenings.
When Madelyn was in her twenties, she fell in her bathtub and hurt her back severely, which resulted in a herniated disc. This meant some tissue from her spine was displaced after her fall.
Stuck in the Tub
When Madelyn fell and hurt herself in the bathtub, she literally couldn't move. She was stuck in one position and when the medical help arrived, she was in such pain, that she couldn't cooperate. She insisted no one moves her and remained in that same position for hours.
That time alone in the tub gave her some hours to think and to realize that her life couldn't continue the way it did. It was time for things to change and this fall was a sign.
Heavy on the Scales
Madelyn was a heavy girl, and because she spent so much time taking care of her family, she didn't realize how big she became. Her weight was unhealthy and her overall medical condition was in danger of deteriorating if no action was taken.
From the minute she decided to change her ways, she began losing weight and two years later was 100 pounds lighter. Not only was she healthier, but her self-esteem and confidence went rocket high.
