I have struggled with being overweight ever since I can remember. As a child I would sneak into the fridge and take bites out of the butter, because food was comfort. Later I realized that I was using food as an emotional crutch. As I got older, I struggled with binge eating, depression, alcohol abuse, and dysfunctional relationships. At one point in my life, I prayed for God to just take me away!!!
I tried everything except surgery to lose weight...You name it, I tried it, but I could never keep the weight off. On top of everything else I was facing, I was also struggling with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, was prediabetic, I even had a small heart attack. Finally in 2016 while in a convenient store a little girl looked at me, then looked at her father and said, “Look Daddy, she’s fat!”. Something about her words and the way she said them broke me all the way down.
On August 1, 2016, I started my natural weight lose journey and never looked back...I am now down 219 pounds! I no longer suffer from any health issues and dedicate my time as a Health & Fitness Coach, assisting women with their natural weight loss journeys, coaching them through the mental barriers associated with losing weight.
My whole life has changed in so many ways, but the most important thing is that I finally am able to love myself and put ME first…And so can YOU!
