I've always tried to eat right and exercise in my adult life, with the exception of my college years. I'm on the shorter side and tend to gain weight quickly. Losing weight was never an issue for me. It just seemed to come off with a little effort.
Enter babies and several years older. I found myself with 40 pounds to lose. I enlisted the help of a personal trainer who whipped my butt into shape and, within 6 months and A LOT of hard work, I had the weight off.
As time passed, I found myself just plain tired, run down, gaining weight and hormonally out of whack. Yes, I have kids and a busy life but I felt like, no matter what I did, how hard I exercised, how much I tried to sleep and destress, nothing was working.
So many thoughts crossed through my brain during this time. Was I perimenopausal? I thought I was too young for this but I didn't know when that all starts. Did I have too much on my plate? Too much stress? Eating too much?
As I researched Dr. Google, trying to figure out what the heck to do, I kept coming across Keto. I would laugh at this. What an insanely crazy thing to do! I thought, these people are going to die of a heart attack!
Months went by with still no motivation, no get-up and go, no energy, 15 pounds heavier and terrible brain fog. Finally, after months of seeing the Ketogenic way of eating flash across my computer screen, one day, I decided to actually read about it. I read, and read, and read, and read and then researched and researched and researched, and researched. And then I decided to try it. I began with the mindset that this would be temporary. I would just try it for a few weeks to see if all the hype was true. If I would REALLY have more energy, clarity and feel better???? This is where my life changed.
After several weeks of getting my body to transition to a fat burning machine, a light switch just turned on. Here it all was, the energy, the clarity, my motivation....all back with a vengeance. My hormones out of whack, my bloating, my 15 pounds GONE. I wish I could make this stuff up.
After going in with a mindset of 'I'm just going to try this for a few weeks', I knew I could never eat differently again. This was it for me. I was sold.
As time passes, my body continues to get better and better. I feel better and better. This was my goal. I'm stronger mentally and physically and my health has never been better.
I'm putting my passion to work for you! If you're feeling the way I was, I can help! It's not an easy journey but it's all worth it. I can guarantee that!
