Miami, FL

"I started showing up for myself when I was 18 years old weighing in at 320lbs. I was a single mom of an 8 month old baby boy and fresh out of an abusive relationship. I was verbally and mentally abused, beaten up and told I was a fat ass and no one could ever love me. I had been disowned by my parents. I was at rock bottom to be honest. I had to woman up, apologize to my family and move back home. I was both relieved and sad at the same time. I felt like a failure to myself and my son. I won't lie and say it was all peachy after that. It wasn't. I was depressed, sad and ate my feelings...a lot. It took seeing my son cry because I couldn't ride a ride with him (I didn't fit) to really wake me up. I needed to be there for my son. I needed to be able to run with him, play ball and teach him how to ride a bike! I needed to be healthy. It took me about a year, but I went from 320lbs to 155lbs! I finally felt free!!! I did what my ex said I couldn't! I changed my life. For me. Not him. I've since had two more children. I'm 42 with a 24 year old, 13 year old and a 2 year old. Yep, I know. I stay for for them. They're my life and I plan on being the healthiest version of myself always. Right now I'm working towards possibly getting my Personal Trainer Certification so I can change peoples lives! It makes me feel so good to inspire. I work out about 5 days a week and I usually always post them so I can hopefully motivate others to get moving! Working out has become such a huge part of my life. It makes me feel strong, powerful, sexy and happy! That's all I can ask for right? I love it. I'd say the most interesting thing about me is that I absolutely LOVE to dance during my workouts... to rap music 😂😂"
