Before & After

On November 21, 2011, my husband suffered ruptured brain aneurysm, which made me realize the preciousness of each and every day. The aftermath of his recovery changed me in a fundamental way, so I will share what I’ve learned along the way to a better me.

The day that it happened, I was a 5’7, 215 pound, disheveled, two-pack-a-day smoker who dreaded waking up.  I lost 85 pounds without spending a fortune on formal diet plans or groups. I ran my first half marathon (and a 5K) on my 40th birthday, found my true passions in life, and am finishing a college degree.

It took a long time to get to where I am today. I made the decision to change, then followed through. There is nothing special about me. I learned all that I could and created my own path to get there.

  4. Damn. I know you’re married and all that and I am trying not to come off as a creep. But I have to compliment you. Your tits look fantastic. Good for you on being healthy too.


  5. I LOVE the Before and afters! I like the last set the best as I can tell from your smile that you are the same person 🙂

    This is such a great intro and really makes me want to hear the rest of your story!


    1. Thank you so much for the kind words. I’m going to keep rolling with this because I genuinely want to help people. I have had so many ask how, but the “diet and exercise,” answer doesn’t answer the question. There are a lot of little pieces and parts that I’ll compile here.
