My name is Dobromira Marintchev. You can call me Dobie.
I am 27 years old girl with serious passion for healthy living and delicious food!
I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Bulgaria. I moved to USA about 7 years ago.
I decided to create this blog to be able to share my personal journey back to health, through clean foods and exercise. I am still walking this huge distance between having pre-diabetes (insulin resistance) and a state of good health.
Probably about 3 years ago I was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome).
I had very high glucose levels and high insulin in my body. In 5 short years I went from 140lbs to 185lbs (and size 14 pants)! I felt so tired all the time, moody and depressed! No fun!
I am reading a lot about healthy foods, exercise and all kinds of health information!
I discovered the book of Tosca Reno, called The Eat Clean Diet! This made me realize that you don’t have to eat and drink diet foods to lose some weight. The beauty and abundance of all the tasty whole foods helped me lose about 5lbs in just 2 weeks! I wasn’t starving, and I felt so light in the same time. Of course instead of sticking to it, I started my old habits of binge eating and no exercise, and I ended up again in the 180’s.
I decided to go back to it! Especially after seeing so many inspiring stories online, I know that I can do it. I want to change my lifestyle, because of my medical condition, which is going to progress into full blown Type2 Diabetes, if I don’t at least try to stop it or slow it down!
Wish me luck!
I wish luck to all other people with the same health issues. Let’s do it together!!!
