When you’re big and out of shape and you’re self conscious, people tend to look right through you. The members at bodhi looked AT me and saw me as a human being

When was the exact moment you decided to transform?

I tell people that the moment I decided to to do this is when I became diabetic. I had been pre-diabetic for years, and my bloodwork finally ticked over to diabetic. But that was just the straw that broke the camel’s back. I’d been unhappy for a while about my weight and lack of fitness: trouble getting out of bed and out of my car; gasping for breath after a flight of stairs; not recognizing myself in photographs.


It’s so amazing, you know you’re getting the physical benefit, and the nutritional benefit, BUT that mental clearing out your mind makes all the difference

The exact moment I decided to transform?

Growing up I had always been mindful of exercising and trying to stay fit and would go in and out of routines and regimens but as lift went on I made up more and more excuses to not really keep up with it. 

My biggest accomplishment is being able to do box jumps and the pants sizes that I have lost

What did you see when you looked in the mirror before you started your journey, and what do you see now?

I was living an unhealthy lifestyle so I decided to make a change. Now when I look in the mirror I see the results of all my hard work.

How much weight have you lost?

I have lost 79lbs!

My MIND and my MOOD are really what have improved the most.

What did you see when you looked in the mirror before you started your journey, and what do you see now?

Before, I saw a person who talked a lot and thought a lot about what it means to live a healthy lifestyle but, I never actually followed through with it. I saw a person who was nowhere near what their potential could be.

I think my biggest accomplishment is the general knowledge that I have gained about health and wellness.

Biggest challenge –

My biggest challenge or obstacle has always been consistency. It’s so easy to fall into a funk and make excuses as to why you can’t work out one day, or why you didn’t make the healthiest choices, and that is something I have definitely struggled with before. I just have to make a conscious effort when I find myself starting to make those excuses to not allow myself to do that. It is so much harder starting over then it is to squeeze a 1 hour workout into your day. Life is going to happen, and excuses will always be there. You have to make yourself a priority because no one else is going to do it for you.
