You know what day it is!!! Yep it’s #transformationtuesday 😀 Each week I make sure to tell a small part of my story, so that all our new followers can get an idea of who I am, and why they should stick around. WELCOME to our 115 new people this week <3
Would you believe these pictures are almost 10 YEARS apart!?!? I feel like I look SO much younger in the AFTER pic. It’s amazing what fitness, nutrition, and personal growth can do for you.
My name is Amber and I have been on quite a journey in my life. The most notable is the one that started in 2009 when I got divorced, shortly after filing bankruptcy and losing our house.
I was living alone for the first time, depressed, drinking a ton, and finding my only friendship in food. It was the one thing I thought I could count on. Food was always there, no matter what else was going on.
I had lost 10, 30, even 50 pounds before, but I was at an all time high of almost 300 pounds, because every failed attempt meant more weight gained in the long run.
Over the past 5 years I have lost 110 lbs, built a 6 figure business from home, and found an incredible community that supports my growth as a person.
The most important thing I have found is my YOUTH. For the first time in my life, at 30 years old, I found the ability to ENJOY LIFE. To really FEEL my feelings, to adore people, to rock whatever I want to wear, to jump off things, and climb on things.
I know that on a calendar I was younger in the first pic, but the past 5 years that have added years to my life, have actually added life to my years.
I hope you stick around to be inspired, laugh, and challenge the way you think. WELCOME to the new people and THANK YOU for being here, to everyone who has been with me along the way <3
