My journey began in 2009. I was unhappy with my weight and needed to step up and be a good role model for my girls. I started working out with a Leslie Sansone DVD about 6 days a week. In a 1 ½ year I lost a little over 60 lbs.!! In March of 2010 I learned I could become a Walk Leader , and in June of 2010 I became certified! I started classes in July of that year at my church where I still teach 9 classes a week. We have raised enough money in the last year to help put a new floor in the room where we workout. I have met a great group of women. They tell me what a blessing I am to them, I will argue that it is I that am truly blessed by EACH and EVERY one of THEM!!!!!! If I can leave you with one piece of advice: If YOU believe it!! YOU can achieve it!!!
