This is her story:
Hello Coaches! This week, I will be your team leader. While I am totally excited to do this, I am equally nervous and hope I will be able to meet your needs. My first order of business is to introduce myself and tell you a little of my story.
My struggle with my weight dates back to the age of 11. I have ridden the weight loss roller coaster for years. After having my son almost 7 years ago, the roller coaster was stuck on an incline and it was racing towards a very uncomfortable and precarious place. Last year, my doctor shared concerns about my pre-hypertensive blood pressure and urged me to get on blood pressure medication. I refused. I decided to try to lose the weight. Unfortunately, after 6 months and no weight loss after going to the gym daily for an hour at a time, I began to think it was impossible to lose the weight. I became depressed, which caused me to turn to food even more. By my next appointment, my blood pressure was worse and I was in tears. I hated the idea of taking medication and needed something. Thankfully, I had a friend that gave me some ideas about nutrition and began helping me fix my meals. Eventually, I began to lose weight but I reached a plateau. This is when I was introduced to Beachbody and 21-day fix. I started the program and after 3 months I lost 25 lbs. A little over a year later, my weight loss has slowed by I lost about 43 lbs give or take. I still struggle with the nutrition but I am working on better habits. I am not where I want to be yet, but I have not given up. In April, I started Shakeology and became a Coach in May. I am still learning and this totally takes me out of my comfort zone. But I am learning and growing everyday. Today, I am an Emerald coach with 3 discount coaches and a few customers. I am excited to continue this journey.
