Here is a little about Marie:
I’m a busy mom of four kiddos, ages 9, 7, 4 and 1. Two boys and two girls. I have an awesome, amazing and very supportive husband. I’m also a nurse. I have been a nurse for 9 years and at a Cancer Hospital.

My experiences with obesity started as a child. I grew up with obese parents. We never did active things growing up. I told myself I would never get that way when I was a mom.
I never struggled with my weight until I was in nursing school. For my nurse friends, you understand why that happens. After nursing school I had my first baby. With my first I gained about 60 lbs with that pregnancy, and that pattern repeated for the next 3. I always struggled getting back to my weight that I was before my first. I also had multiple thyroid issues in between my second and third child: Graves disease, Hashimoto’s, and thyroid cancer. I ultimately had my thyroid removed and I’m on thyroid replacement for the rest of my life.

I tried a couple times to lose the weight, but nothing ever stuck. I would always go back to bad eating habits and stop exercising. After my last child, I had enough. My anxiety and depression were at the highest point I can ever remember. I specifically remember one night sobbing on the kitchen floor feeling so defeated with life. I was not happy and felt like a mess. I want to be healthy for my kids and family.

My coach, Michelle Morgan Olson, had been telling about Beachbody for about 6 months when I finally was ready to get myself in shape and ready. I couldn’t believe what clean eating and exercise did for my life. It became a true lifestyle change. I was able to lose the weight and feel amazing. My anxiety and depression are so much better. I’m an active participant in my family and in life.

After about 3 month into my journey, I decided to give this coaching thing a try😜. What I love abut nursing is what I love about coaching, making a difference in people’s lives. I love helping people are their potential. And I love giving the opportunity for other to have a healthy and active family life.
