About This Project

When I started the challenge I needed something to be accountable to and now I feel Amazing!! I have never felt so alive!! The staff at Nutrishop really was committed to me!! When Corey sat down with me on Feb 12 ( the day I weighed in and committed ) Corey not only went through the nutrition plan and supplements with me -He made me understand each element and how it would benefit me through my journey!! Every time I would come into the store the staff had my back and were always on the same page- it’s nice to see that they had such a special interest in me -thank you!! The Protzein powder, Bcaa, detox, natures EFA omegas and Natures Fuel have given my body a complete restart!! I am sleeping better – energy for workouts- more focused throughout the day – more productive- and keeping up with kids was crucial – I feel like a better mom because I am able to do more activities with them!! I didn’t realize the effect it would have on me though- 3 months ago I stood in my closet crying and feeling so ugly and disgusting – nothing fit even my stretch pants were tight— Today I feel like I have changed mentally – my mood has changed drastically I feel pretty again and I know that seems silly but when you feel good everything around is good or you handle things in a more positive way!! I needed that!!! People around me have noticed a change on the outside and inside!!! My girls have been cooking with me and eating better – they care about getting out of the house and being active!! These small changes in health and fitness that I changed for myself is turning out to be like a ripple effect to everyone around me – It’s neat to see that I was making a difference without me realizing it!! The most unbelievable event happened when my daughter of 13 yrs old put her arm around me in church holding me with such respect and quietly whispering in my ear how proud she was of me sticking through and giving everything to myself because mom you deserve it!!!! My husband has been so amazing through this process – which in turn he has been starting to workout and use the supplements too!! He in the beginning never put me down and loved me unconditionally but the way he looks at me now – it’s different!! Wow that feels so, so good to see that in his eyes almost like a proud look but “man you look good kinda look haha!!!” It brings me back to the day I married him- what an experience this has been!!! We have been through a lot in the past 12 years with losing our 5yr old, a baby at 20 weeks and 4 additional miscarriages — it shook our family to the core over and over but what I realize is that pushing through is what makes you strong!!! What I am trying to say is that no matter what the obstacle you must decide!! Not about winning or losing but CHOOSING!!!! I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a Caring Partner in my journey and bettering my family’s life too!!
