12-month Testimonial, plus more….#honestly Being vulnerable & sharing your story is difficult & I struggle with it. So, I share in hopes that it may help someone & shed light on struggles that they too can relate with. I apologize as this will be lengthy. Three years ago, when I met Anneliese I was grieving after losing my husband in 2011. I was sick & extremely unhealthy. I’d battled lung illness for years & became an emotional eater. In & out of the hospital, prednisone & pages of medications became the norm & soon was the fate of 85 lbs gained. I was terrified for my future & knew my kids needed me more than ever. I had followed Anneliese on social media & decided it was time to reach out for help. She became my personal trainer & wellness coach. We gained a lot of ground that year, however by lungs were not physically functioning as they should. Soon, it resulted in Oxygen. That was terrifying! 30 years old & this is not how I saw my life. I chose to take a step back. I searched out the best of the best pulmonary docs, although it took time & many miles away from my babies, I was in search to find the best. That’s when my world changed. 2016 I completed three lung surgeries. 3 months after my third & final surgery, I went to my pulmonologist asking if I could run. Sounds crazy, but for years walking was difficult to do, due to shortness of breath. I hadn’t run since high school & was ready to give it a try. It was then that I reached out to Anneliese again, for her knowledge & guidance to help assist in my recovery & goal setting. I was determined more than ever before to give it my all, to be the best I could be for my children & to become healthy again. I began the 12-week Enlightened Program & had such great results, that I wanted more. I wanted to continue to be educated by her & have the connection with a Tribe to share wins/struggles with. To have accountability. I then joined the 12-Month Empowered Living Program. This program helped me soul search, gain confidence & helped me understand that it is ok to have a cheat day or to fall off- It’s life! “Jump back on” is something that I am grateful for every day. I learned to listen to my body & remove unhealthy foods. I learned to set short-term & long-term (realistic) goals & how to achieve them. I am forever thankful Anneliese came into my life.
Sharing below some of my results: I found my WHY! 72 total lbs lost since joining Anneliese I went from pants size 24 to 14 (two pants sizes in the last 12-months) I learned my reactive foods and eat very little dairy. I joined a gym and am a regular member (I was scared & embarrassed before/had never been) I learned what to do when emotional eating is at risk I went from 11 medications to 2 DON’T GIVE UP- I still have goals in play, which I will continue to rely on my support system, keep a positive mindset, and continue to work out
