I am currently on my own journey to health.  As a coach, I’m working on my own health and fitness.  I’m not “there” yet because there’s no “there”; health and fitness is not a destination, but an ongoing process.  I have struggled with my weight for too many years now.  My mom (stepmom) passed away 4 years ago at the young age of 42.  She had been very sick for a very long time.  Because I knew she was with Jesus and no longer in pain; I felt very guilty for wanting her to be here with me rather than in Paradise.  I really struggled and food became my comfort.  I was already about 30 pounds heavier than I wanted to be when she passed.  My emotional eating added another 60 pounds to my 5’3″ stocky frame.  I’ve always cooked from scratch and ate somewhat healthy, however I overate.  Too much of a good thing is still too much!

June 8, 2016 was the day my program showed up in the mail.  This isn’t the first program I’ve tried for sure, I’ve tried every crazy, quick fix, and even most of the more reputable diet programs out there.  None of them worked for me because I wasn’t committed.  It wasn’t until I became friends with my coach.  She has inspired and encouraged me along the way, but it’s not just her.  We have a whole team of supporters which is huge.  I’ve found my why; I want to be able to do all the amazing things God has called me to do with confidence.   As of last week I had hit the 20 pounds down mark.  I’ve also lost over 22 inches.  More than what I’ve lost though is what I’ve found.  I’m beginning to find me again.  The person God created me to be.  I have been a very busy wife, mama, daughter, sister, friend and helper for many years now.  I enjoy each of these assignments and want to be the best at them that I can be.  I’ve learned I can’t pour from an empty cup.  God is my portion and fills me daily.  Now that I am taking care to nourish myself; physically, spiritually, and emotionally I am a better wife, mama, daughter, sister, friend, and helper.

I started my journey to get myself into better shape.  I became a coach to help others on their journey.  I hate that I lived in boundage for so long.  If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired message me; I can help I promise!
