Have you ever felt the best you've ever felt in your life but then your body decided to take a different turn????๐Ÿ˜ฑ I have been through A LOT in life , starting at a very young age- from being an only child, not being wanted by my dad, rejected by grandparents, family and friends making fun of my weight issues. It was some tough pills to swallow but also made me the person I am today! ๐Ÿ’ช ************************************************************************ Figuring out your place in the world is rough at 13 but shedding those first 50 lbs started the confidence that I needed to handle dad leaving, family not believing in me and gave me drive to prove them wrong. ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ Along the road, knee issues showed up to plague me and a lower back injury from pool fun that left me broke and weak. I spent countless hours taking pain pills, wearing braces, having pity party after pity party feeling sorry for myself in my 20's & thinking, is this the way my life is suppose to be????? ๐Ÿค” Then I was introduced to strength training and boy did things start to change. My knees started to not give me any problems and I had less and less lower back issues from just doing little things like getting groceries or laundry. It felt amazing to finally be pain free for once since 18. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช But then that word that every woman hates to hear.................MENOPAUSE........................ And that's when the the body decided to take a different turn from strong, healthy and feeling amazing to packing on weight, feeling like crap and an emotional wreck ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š It was a long 2 yr fight, blood work, test after test after test to only find that there was nothing wrong ๐Ÿ˜ฎYES, you read that right. But also hormones and natural remedies weren't making any difference either. So that 13 yr old girl that fought all those years ago reminded me of what had gotten me started in the first place. Consistency in working on myself and feeding the body healthy nutrition. So now at 46, I know I have control over my body again and only want to empower other women to do the same. I hope that you will find value & friendship through my page, canโ€™t wait to get to know you better and thanks so much for listening! โ™ฅ๐Ÿ’œ Mitzi
