Well...growing up I never had an issue with my weight. I was always pretty normal (weight wise that is).

When I was 21 I lost my older brother suddenly, my only sibling who I was as close as could be. After losing him I developed Panic and Anxiety Disorder. I went on several medications to try and help, all it mainly did was pack on the pounds. Didn't help that I was eating horrible and drinking way too much!!

Let's skip ahead years later to when I decided I wanted to be a mom soon...I decided I needed to get back in shape and take care of myself!!

Was it hard? Yup!

Did I do it? Yup!

I worked my ass off!! I joined Beachbody and met a group of amazing people that were in this same journey with me! I started drinking Shakeology and seeing the results and became addicted!! I loved it so much that I became a Coach so I can help and inspire others. I love my job and I still work just as hard today as I did when I started!!

In total I've lost almost 80 pounds....but let me tell you, what I've gained is worth so much more! I'm a better Mommy and Wife. I feel good about myself and have a confidence that I thought I wouldn't ever have again. I feel like I found my calling and to me that is just amazing!!

This is doable, don't let anyone tell you it's not!! You need to find your "why" and just go!! I always say that in my little world there are so many things I can't control, but this....this I can.

And so can you!!!!
