I was a FAT MOM of 2 and decided I better get FIT to show my children an alternative lifestyle over fast food:) April 2008 was my turning point when I weighed 210lbs. At 5'2", I was about as round as I am Short! lol I never saw myself in the mirror as fat as I was in reality. I was a size freakin 18....AND THAT IS BIG Mama 18. Not the new Jr. sizing 18! lol I did it and I can honestly say that it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. It is still to this day a MIND GAME with me. I believe everything in life happens for a reason and we may not know what that reason is until later. I truly believe I finally had the strength, courage, determination to conquer this battle so I could learn from it and help others.
Why I Love it
When I'm working out, ITS ALL ABOUT ME! I'm not busy being a single mom! IT's my ME time! I'm a 110% at the gym. I have to make the most of my time and I have made it my goal to be the sweatiest CHICK leaving the gym! I also compete. I love having a goal date to reach...It's about the journey in the end. I have met a lot of fabulous people because of this journey that I am very grateful to call my friend.
