Read more about her journey below!
What motivated you to start your journey?
This is my third time losing weight and I started from 312 pounds originally in 2012 at 18 years old and I vowed to NEVER go back to that person that hated being the insecure person who had to shop on the plus size section or depressed because of the weight and crying about it. So even though it was hard with now having two kids and didn’t have daycare at the time and with the pandemic, I made it work.
I constantly would look at old pics and say “Tim, you did it once you could do it again!” My family, husband, and close friends were very motivating every step of the way as well.
How Has What Waist Helped Your Journey?
The What Waist Define Band has helped so much with my posture, my waist as well while working out because that’s a target area because of the babies (all moms and most females can relate) it’s the devil but it helps you get that extra curvy look even after you take it off and lose those inches FAST!!! Along with proper diet and exercise!
What advice would you give someone that’s looking to begin a new fitness journey?
My advice to someone looking to begin a new fitness journey is to be kind to yourself, you’re beautiful, you got this! If that day you mess up or wasn’t good enough – go hard the next, and it doesn’t happen overnight. Some days you’re going to want to quit but if you do, you’re going to be right where you started instead of closer to where you want to be. No matter what, enjoy the journey!
