Fitness Mania Dedication: Kicking Ass & Taking Names

After embarking on a number of goals and reaching them revolving around fitness, I decided to create a group on here for EVERYONE and ANYONE who wants to lose weight, get in shape, try different challenges, share ideas, and ultimately stay fit for a healthier lifestyle!
So, since I started my own personal weight loss goals about a year and a half ago, I have had quite the number of individuals follow my progress! In addition to that, over the past few months, I've had a number of individuals ask me everything from what I am eating to what I am doing for workouts. I can't even tell you how truly wonderful that feels and how much it means to me. Having someone reach out to me based off of the work that I have done, and discovering the ability to empower, motivate, and support someone with their goals is an amazing feeling!
I want to give back ALL of the support and inspiring comments everyone has given me this past year, and help anyone in ANY way that I can! If you're having a hard time losing weight, need motivation, need advice-OR even if you just want to connect for staying in shape or health reasons-I would LOVE to help support everyone in any way that I can! I've been the "fat chick" starring at herself in the mirror, stepping on the treadmill for the first time tipping the scales at nearly 400lbs (dear God, I know!), and it has taken a lot of work to get where I am today, both physically and mentally. I know exactly how it feels to be insecure, uncomfortable and feel completely out of place when stepping into a gym, onto a cardio machine, or picking up a barbell for the first time thinking “What the hell do I do with this THING”, AND then that “THING” only opens you up to so many possibilities with fitness and beyond. I am STILL working on my weight loss goal, but every single day is a new day, a new challenge, another step closer to the ultimate goal. Aside from meeting folks at gyms and personal supporters in my life, I have met the most amazing people this last year that have completely changed my life, challenged me, and have literally pushed me out of my comfort zone.
