I have been at the fitness asylum for about a year, all I can say is thank you for saving my life. I was having some health scares, ended up in the ER with chest pain, numbness in my arm, blood pressure so high I thought I was going to have a stroke. I believe my body was giving me all these signs because I was completely unhealthy…..a whole 60 pounds unhealthy.
I was that lucky girl growing up, so skinny, could eat whatever I wanted. Then I hit my 20’s and that wasn’t the case anymore. I had my babies and it went down hill. I did lose the weight a few times but never kept it off. Then I started nursing school and my weight was out of control, I weighed 10 pounds more than I did when I was 9 months pregnant…..
Today I am healthy, physically stronger and mentally the strongest I have ever been. I’m so thankful to be part of the FA family. I’m so thankful my sister n law made me do this. I’m so thankful my girls have a healthy mommy to look up too. My journey is not done, I still have a lot of work to do but I am so excited to continue this journey here with everyone at FA.
Thank you Bonnie, instructors, my friends who have joined me and all the new friends I have made here. This journey has been hard, but I couldn’t have done it with out all of these people.
