This is her story:

“I am from Fresno, California. I am a wife and mother to three children, ages 12, 11, and 8. It’s fair to say that I have struggled all my life with body issues and how I saw myself. It is that negative view of myself and my body that had me honestly believing for a long time that I would always be fat, that my destiny was to just get fatter and less productive as time got on, and that was it.

After some life events took some personal goals off track once again, I felt horrible. I felt aimless, lost — a ship in a vast ocean, simply adrift. It was apparent in every picture I was in at that time that I felt defeated and had little joy in the idea of living life out in such a desperate manner. Even worse, my kids could feel my joyless disposition. I was affecting everyone around me, and not in a good way.

Finally, in September of 2015, I saw a late-night infomercial for P90! Not P90X, just P90! I thought, “Hey! Maybe this is what I need to turn things around for myself!” I talked with my husband, since funds were scarce at that time, and by October 1st I was working out with good ol’ Uncle Tony! I lost a little over 12 pounds, but fell back into some bad eating habits during Christmas.

January came around, and with it major changes, the biggest being the death of my father-in-law. His death due to diabetes related issues caused me to want to make a serious shift in how I lived and nourished my body as well as the bodies of my family. Not too long after, a friend of mine shared on Facebook about Beachbody! She and I talked, I met her coach, Shannon Golladay, and before you knew it I was sipping Chocolate Shakeology and losing even more weight as I tried other fantastic workouts! To date, I have lost 20 lbs. and am looking forward to getting even healthier and more toned!

I love being a coach, and helping others make a change for the healthier! The way I have felt about my progress is a feeling I’d love others to feel! This is a phenomenal team to be a part of, and I am honored, humbled and grateful for the chance to interact with all of you!”
