I am a mom of 3 boys in my 40's, who has struggled with weight my entire life. After I had my youngest son, I was at my heaviest at over 200lbs. Through the beginning of my fitness journey, I have been over weight and underweight. I have tried every fad diet out there, but nothing saved me and helped me achieve the physique I wanted until I learned how to eat flexibly and found a love of lifting. I became a personal trainer, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, and an NPC bikini athlete.
