This is me at 489 lbs!!  The picture was taken in Nov 2014, not too long before my gastric bypass surgery.



This picture was taken in February of 2015… 3 months after bypass surgery… I had lost about 75 lbs!


This picture was taken July 12-13th of 2017… my weigh in for surgery was 309

This is my most current picture… I need a full length one and I will get one soon…  but you get the idea… I’m still on a mission to lose weight but most importantly to be healthier.  I am still recovering from the  surgery I had in July, but I am getting there.  If I can do this, than others can too!  I am studying to become a Certified Health Coach and plan to start my business after the first of the year! I won’t be your typical coach and preach about what you should or shouldn’t do… God knows I’ve been told that my whole life and it set me up for failure every time. My approach is to teach others the science and proof for living a healthier life and once you get that, it makes so much sense! Diets fail, restrictions fail… I am proof it can work, it’s about changing your life for the better!

I hope I can inspire others to live healthier and learn to love yourself no matter where you are on your journey. Hurdles make us stronger!
