My journey began from a negative standpoint. I was stuck in a yo-yo diet most of my life. I convinced myself there was nothing I could do to lose weight and that being overweight was just who I was. Like so many of us, that mindset was rooted in my past traumas. My weight loss transformation began when I hit my personal bottom.
I was in a place where I lacked self-love, respect and confidence. I allowed people to treat me however they wanted to. I bottled it up, numbed it with drugs and alcohol and became very self-destructive. In 2016, I decided to take action after the doctor told me that I was pre-diabetic with high cholesterol.
Determined to change and done feeling sorry for myself I asked for help. With the help of my coach, I did the work and lost 50lbs which for my frame, is a lot! Not only did I become physically fit, I became more present.
In the beginning, I thought that losing weight was going to fix everything internally and externally but it was more than that. I became aware of how deeply depressed, unhappy, and insecure I was. My transformation changed my habits, lifestyle and sense of self-worth.
It was the gateway to building a stronger and healthier mindset. Now, my mission is to help others with the same tools I used to transform my own life.
