Hey there! I feel extra blessed that we have connected and I know you are not here by accident. God has blessed us with the amazing gift of being wives and mothers for His glory and that is where my story starts.
I’m a wife of 11 years to Gary and a Mama to 3 beautiful cherubs here on earth (and 3 in heaven). My kiddos are 9, 6 and 1 and they are the center of our world. We live in beautiful East Tennessee and homeschool our “baby birds” while living out the dream of raising them amidst the gorgeous backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains!
But 8 years ago, life wasn’t so pretty! I was gaining more weight instead of losing the baby weight and frantically searching for pictures of my daughter and I for her 1st birthday party. I realized I didn’t have many because I never wanted to be IN the photos!
I knew I needed to make so many changes but I felt so alone on the journey and needed a simple system for food, exercise and community where I could do this *with* other women.
Enter: my very first accountability group! After struggling along on my own…counting points, feeling ever frsutrated, I knew I would do whatever it took when my friend invited me to her “Get Out of Your Funk” weight loss group. I went ALL IN, ordered the workout program she said they were doing, the shake it came with and followed the nutrition program to a T!
That one decision would change the course of my life…FOREVER! In a major way! Not only did I lose all of the baby weight and more, but I learned to love myself through the process and actually fell in love with fitness and nutrition!
I went on to gain and lose weight throughout pregnancy and postpartum life but all the while stayed connected to the programs and community that helped me stay on the journey. I have made some incredible friends and have never stopped learning! I’ve overcome habits that I thought would always have a hold on me, like emotional eating and binge eating and I can honestly say God has set me free from those! And not only that…but from so many struggles with self-confidence, chronic acne, migraine headaches, insomnia, you name it!
I actually started coaching people along the way while I was still on my journey to losing the weight and that was where my business was born! I fell in love with helping others believe in themselves. Together we show up daily and share the journey, holding each other accountable, offering encouragement and prayer and the process is just magic!
This whole process has made me the best wife, mother, daughter and friend I could ever possibly be! And I promise when you invite God into this journey and ask Him for the grace every single day to take care of your health, He will show up in a huge way! It will almost certainly change your life!
