After taking my engagement photos and hating them because of the way I looked, I felt motivated to lose weight for my wedding. Through disciplined diet and exercise I lost 50 pounds for my wedding. A couple of years later I got pregnant and gained over 70 pounds throughout my pregnancy. I knew I would need to work even harder to lose weight the second time around. I lost over 80 pounds after having my daughter and I have kept off the weight ever since.
It's okay if you do not know where to begin on your own journey to weight loss. I am here to help you and tell you that it can be done. I will work with you get the results that you are looking for. Self-doubt kills more dreams, than failure will.
It is never too late to reach your goals and achieve your dreams. I have been there and I am here for you. We can do this together! Visualize your highest self and start showing up as that person! If you need motivation to reach your goals, I will help you find it!
My favorite quotes are:
"If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you."
"Forget all the reasons why it won't work and believe in the one reason why it will."
