Hi! This is me!

And now for the book-length answers to those questions…Hey Guys!

I’m Nicky the creator and owner of this here blog Healthy As You Can. Once upon a time, back in my college years and twenties, I used to be stressed and obsessed about my health. The funny part about it is that I was completely unhealthy, despite this obsession.

I remember sitting at my desk, looking at my swollen feet, too scared to go to the doctor to find out why an unpregnant, 20 something-year-old would be dealing with a condition like that at such a young age.

I couldn’t believe that I could be so young and so unhealthy. Like when did this happen? I agonized over my health constantly but never really made any lasting changes. I mean sure I would go on unrealistic diets, swearing every time that this time it would stick but it didn’t of course. More than anything, I just stressed out about my health.

But making any real changes? Umm, yeah, no thanks.

Fast forward to now. I no longer stress and obsess about healthy. I mean clearly, its important to me or I wouldn’t have started this blog but I no longer let it be an idol. Now, as I continue on my journey, healthy living is more about freedom, enjoyment, and learning (i’m a big nerd!). And the funny thing is, the less I stress about my health and just enjoy the process, the healthier I become. I am far from my ideal weight and I’m not in perfect health but I have made a lot of strides since my twenties:

– I’ve lost over 65 pounds

– I’m no longer on Metformin

– No longer pre-diabetic

– No longer depressed

– Swollen feet are gone!

– Regulated my cycle

– PMS symptoms greatly alleviated (cramps, mood swings, bloating)

– Skin conditions greatly improved

– Been told by my clinic that I have perfect blood pressure and cholesterol 

I’ve found the less you obsess and the more you lean on the Lord for guidance, the easier healthy living will become. I’ve been able to make small sustainable changes over the years which have lead to great results in my health. Getting healthy is about getting as healthy as you can, little by little and letting those changes add up.

Of course, you can make sweeping, all-encompassing changes. Some people can do that and the changes stick. I haven’t had much success with that approach though.

Whenever I try and do a 180, it usually only lasts for a short time and I wind up right back where I started, more frustrated than ever.
