My first journey to getting healthy started back in Sept 2012, weighing in at 173lbs I decided I needed to make a change but making this change wasn't going to be an easy thing for me to do. I suffer from anxiety and depression and I'm just a full out shy person.The most simplest things like going to the gym wasn't so easy for me, it was nerve racking and terrifying.
After losing some weight, and starting a contest prep I ended up self sabotaging myself. I gave up 2 months away from my show date and went back to my old, unhealthy ways.
So here we are a few years later, with a clear head and a better understanding of where I want to be and who I want to become. My passion for fitness and to compete is so strong! This is what makes me happy.
I decided to start back at the gym in Aug 2014 but I wanted more, I wanted to compete. I then contacted Sara whom I've been following for a few years and just knew without a doubt she was the best person to guide me along my journey.
October 1st, 2014 I started with Sara, I weighed 165lbs. I was excited and determined to do this and to do it right. I love how sara is all about health and doing it the right way, the healthy way, no short cuts no "magic diet pills", no crash diets!
In the beginning I learned I could still eat the foods I loved but in moderation. I learned not all fats or carbs were horrible. She has taught me so much about healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle.
Now here I am, who would have thought 6 months later, I am down 43lbs, went from a size 11/12 pants to a 1/3. My drive and energy is incredible and I have a new outlook on life!
I have the best coach, motivator and inspirational lady guiding me along this incredible journey, I couldn't be any happier, not to mention I have met some incredible people along the way and made some amazing friendships.
Thank you Sara for all you have done, I cannot wait to continue this journey with you. We are just getting started😀
