Being a Certified Personal Trainer for 15 yrs and having the opportunity to dance for the San Diego Charger Girls for 6 seasons gave me a ton of knowledge on my health and fitness but after hanging up my pom poms, my own personal training business got ALL of my focus. I was working towards building a strong business, and taking on the goals of my clients. Their goals became my goals. I put my own personal health and wellness goals aside. And with doing that, I had gained weight… and not only on the scale but mentally, I was carrying a lot of baggage. I felt like a hypocrite, I could encourage my PT clients to live a healthy lifestyle, but I was unable to do it myself! I lost my confidence and I lost my passion for living. That was until my brother introduced me to Optavia. And everything changed for the better. Not only did I see the physical change in my body but losing the weight gave me a freedom from the negative self-talk that was like a broken record in my mind.
