I have been overweight a good chunk of my life.

It didn’t hit me that I needed to do something about it until I reached Senior year in college. I began to not feel good and have horrible headaches.

Only to find out I had High Blood Pressure.

You think having HBP  and having to take a pill everyday would kick my butt into gear into getting in shape, but no.

It was until 7 years later that I got to my highest weight of 286lbs and was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. That was when I said enough was enough!

Not only was I unhealthy and obese with serious health issues stacking up, but I was unhappy, had low self-esteem, negative body image thoughts and even hated to be looked at.

I knew my life needed to change and it started with my health…

I began my journey with a Beachbody Home Fitness program: 21 Day Fix Extreme. The program was for 21 days of 30min workouts that also had an eating plan that came with portion control containers and a shake called Shakeology.

I lost my FIRST 20lbs with this program (Did 2 rounds).

What is my “Why”? Because I want to be confident, I want to feel beautiful on the inside and out! I want to have kids one day and be able to do all the things they can do! MOST IMPORTANTLY, I don’t want High Blood Pressure and to sleep with a mask on my face every night!

I want to be HEALTHY & FIT!

I am DETERMINED to be SUCCESSFUL and to show all OBESE individuals WE CAN KICK OBESITY IN THE BOOTY!
