It is my firm belief that we all have a role to play in this world. Nothing is a coincidence; everyone and everything has a purpose in this life. In that sense, we all have the power to shape our realities the way we see them. It is by this mantra that the great achievements of our time have been accomplished.
Whatever your future goal may be, whether it’s losing those extra pounds from the holidays, gaining muscle tone and rocking that body you’ve wished for all your life, or making a lifesaving habit change that will steer you to a longer life expectancy is not only possible, but also fairly simple with the right set of tools.
I believe that, through sheer willpower and determination, anyone can decide to lead a better, healthier life.
My name is Dr. Mayra Alfonso, “Diva Body Quest” and this is my story.
I am a medical doctor, specialized in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. With a track record of over 20 years in the Medical field. However, I walked away from my full-time medical career and went on to find my true passion; helping other women achieve the body type they desire.
From a very young age, I’ve always wanted to find ways to help other people out, and after I grew up, I thought that a good way to achieve this was by studying to become a doctor. For 20 years I dedicated my life and limb to the trade, with great results. But at what cost?
The added stress of my career had taken a toll on my body; I had gained lots of weight. I tried so hard to get rid of it, to no avail. I constantly went on diets, and gained the weight back. I exercised at times, then stopped and then exercised again. It seemed that no matter how much I tried, I couldn’t keep the weight off.
I used to get so mad when my father told me that I needed to lose weight. I also felt guilty, because at the time, he was struggling with cancer. The fact that I had let my body go was a big concern in his already troubled mind. The last straw happened in June 2010, after my father passed away. I had not only lost a good father then but also my best friend. I was emotionally exhausted from all that had transpired, I had just been diagnosed with hypertension by my physician, and I was also physically drained from carrying around all that extra weight.
At this point I finally realized that my father was right; I needed to lose weight. To look better, move around better and, most importantly, to feel better and at peace with myself and honor his memory. This ultimately transformed into my resolve, that burning passion which helped to achieve the goal I had set for myself.
I am here to help you find your resolve; to find that special something that will drive you to achieve your weight loss goal. To finally attain the body type you have always wished for, but that for some reason or another have never been able to gain.
From personal experience I can tell you that losing weight is not hard; it’s just a matter of having the right mindset, the right mentor, “doable” goals and taking small but consistent actions to move towards your objective. You could say that I spend all my time helping other women achieve this and helping them feel better and healthier, and I’m passionate about it.
