Naeomie Barrow 

Puyallup, WA

"My name is Naeomie! I am 25 and have been on this journey for 1 year and 9 months. Here’s a little story about how my life got flipped upside down but in the best way. The year was about to be 2019 and I was 255 pounds.

I was (and still am) the General Manager of a Dairy Queen. So as you can tell fast food was convenient. Being on my feet all day at work was my only form of exercise, if you can even call it that. To keep it simple I used to treat my body like I was going to be gifted a new one later... Ate what I want when I wanted it, never really drank soda but I drank whatever else I felt like, I had no care in the world.

Aside from physical health I also was struggling with mental health and was kind of in a dark place. Then can 2019 I decided I wanted better.

I took my health into my own hands and it was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. I started a clean healthy diet and was counting my calories and drinking more water.

After about a month I made the leap and joined the gym! I started slow but I fell in love so fast. The gym turned out to be the best outlet for me. Happy, mad, sad, I go to the gym. It was the one thing that was consistent in my life for awhile.

It made me feel good!

As my body changed my love for it grew. I stopped wanting to be skinny and started wanting to be strong! It’s changed my life in the best type of way. It wasn’t instant and it took a lot of work, some days are harder than others. Consistency is key, you always gotta keep pushing and show up for yourself! You are your biggest fan."
