I was 197 pounds at 5’4″, throwing up every day due to a stomach ulcer causing me to wake up sick every morning and experiencing continual pain in my stomach throughout the day. I also suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) which was making every day life unbearable. I decided enough was enough and I was going to feel better no matter what. I started eating fresh veggies and proteins. That is when my life changed. I have lost 70 pounds and said goodbye to my ulcer, and IBS. I also started a fitness routine. The gym is a great way to relieve stress, recenter, and prepare you for life. I want to take what I have learned and help others like myself or in similar situations get their health and hope back. Life is worth living when you’re functionally fit and can handle all that it throws at you! I would love to hear about your health challenges and create a meal plan for you to reach your goals!
