My childhood was what seems to be the norm now a days. You know, raised by a strong woman who did the very best she could with everything she had. Yet I still managed to experience the feeling of unintentional abandonment. I experienced sexual abuse and exposure at a very early age, I faced an identity crisis, lost the man I looked up to as my father to a heart attack, and food became my primary coping mechanism which ultimately became one of my addictions.
I hid behind my weight, and it began to take a toll on me physically and mentally. I tolerated verbal, mental, sexual, and spiritual abuse from men all in the name of love. Struggled with depression, alcohol abuse and multiple health issues due to my weight, had a small heart attack and was ready to die. Spent many nights asking God to just take me away, I had given up!
After numerous failed attempts to gain control over my health I soon realized that this was going to take me to commit to going on the journey that would end the battle from within. This was a Mind Body And Soul Journey! A journey towards self-empowerment , self control, self-discipline and creating long lasting results. It was time for me to end the cycles and choose me!
I soon realized that the physical weight I was holding on to had little to do with finding the best diet or workout, and more to do with what was going on within. My weight had everything to do with, emotional instability, fears, anxiety, the lack of knowledge, the lack of self-worth, self-love and the negative stories that I continued to tell myself daily when it came to myself and my ability to succeed, which ended up manifesting in how I was treating my body.
I knew this journey was going to take some serious inner work , healing, and letting go. I was going to have to embark on a journey towards tearing down the old and rebuilding the new. I not only needed to understand why I had created these un healthy habits that I couldn't seem to shake, but how I was going to go about creating a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
In 2016 I took that journey, and never looked back again. I ended my struggles with food addiction and emotional binge eating, and took my life back. I lost over 200lbs and created the health and wellness journey that I had always wanted. I healed my relationship with food, let go of extreme dieting and am now living a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
Experiencing the struggles and the victories within my journey is what ignited the fire within me to help others overcome. I created my brand to help women all over the world understand what it takes in order for them to experience the weight loss success that they desire. I'm passionate about providing quality and comprehensive tools that help women tackle weight loss and create long lasting results. I take pride in my approach and stand firm on the fact of their not being a one size fits all plan when it comes to weight loss.
A weight loss journey begins within, and if you are willing to do the work, you too can win!
