Welcome to My Story!


Thank you kindly for visiting my site and taking the time to read my story. My purpose in sharing my life is to inspire and encourage women of any age to get into and stay in the best shape and health of their life. I am especially passionate about helping other Moms become fit and healthy, allowing them to better enjoy the blessings of their children, to set a positive example for them, and to live a longer, fuller life.

I am not a doctor, a nutritionist, a personal trainer, or a licensed medical practitioner. What I am is a 39 year old Mommy of Twin Toddlers who has experienced for herself the battle of the buldge and the victory of healthy, natural weight loss. I am a Mom who after finally getting pregnant with Twins via IVF, was told by many people that I would never get all my weight off, and that my body would never return to its pre-pregnancy shape. I am a Mom who ignored the naysayers and made a commitment to myself and to my children that I would become The Fit Healthy Mom and my own Superhero.

Through my posts I will share with you the steps I took to lose 89 pounds, and go from a size 12 to a size 4 in just a few months. It was not easy, there were no "magic" pills that melted away my fat, and yes I had to do a lot of work. However, I made the "work" fun and enjoyable so it became something I looked forward to doing every day. Despite struggling with my weight for most of my life and having a family history of obesity, I have become a Fit Healthy Mom-and you can become one too!
