I was the unhappiest I have ever been in my entire life. At one point, my little boy placed his hand on my arm and looked into my eyes and said, "Smile Mommy". I knew right then that my grief and sadness wasn't just affecting me - it was affecting my entire family and it was time to make a change.
I had suffered a very late-term miscarriage in October 2012.
The loss resulted in depression, anxiety, and a huge body image problem to go along with the extra weight.
I have struggled with my weight on and off since my mid 20's. I've gained, I've lost and I've gained again. Each time trying a new diet, a new gym, or a new home fitness program, but nothing seemed to last.
In March of 2013 my husband showed me Arthur Boorman's inspirational video and I haven't looked back since. I started the program on April 1st, and within 3 months I had already lost 41 pounds. Two months after that I lost a total of 60 pounds and dropped from a size 18 to a size 6! One year later the weight is still off and I'm stronger, leaner, and more flexible than ever.*
Today it's all about paying it forward and helping others set goals and then crush them! I'm 39 and for the first time in my life I'm can't wait to see what I'm like at 40!
