“In March 2012, I decided to change my life for the better. After suffering from years of health issues like migraines, stomach pains, depression and emergency surgery, I had decided that enough was enough. I was no longer going to allow my medical issues control my life, especially if there was something that I could do about it. No more bags of medicine to leave the house, or medicine to drink before I could eat (because my body could not digest what I was putting into it after the emergency surgery) and no more just sitting at home out of fear of getting sick.
I started eating clean and leading a more active lifestyle and lost 34 pounds. No more meds, no more migraines and happier. In March of this year I celebrated my one year “cleanaversary,” but found that my forward movement, motivation and journey had come to a slight stand still. I had hit a plateau for months and with the lack of motivation I wasn’t sure how to push forward and I felt myself slipping back into old habits.
In May I decided that I wanted to do something for me and to get my journey back on the right track. I am turning 30 this year and what better way to celebrate my 30’s and get my journey back on track than creating a BIG goal, and compete in my first bikini competition (YIKES!). After weeks of contemplating and doing my own internet research I decided to take a leap, and I found Angie.
