Yes, that was me a few years ago while on vacation in Wells, Maine. I was forty five pounds heavier than I am today and probably consumed with thoughts as to how I was going to lose the weight I was sure to gain during our one week stay. I loved food then and still do today. The difference being is that I now eat a plant-based, nutrient dense diet.
After watching my Mom suffer from an aggressive form of brain cancer; I realized I had a responsibility to take care of myself. It was devastating watching someone I loved so very much succumb to such a senseless disease. Being a stay at home Mom , I knew the day would come when I would have to re-enter the workforce (I have a BS in Business Administration). With the memory of my Mom’s illness and with a fair amount of trepidation (my spring chicken days are behind me), I changed my direction and decided to get certified as a Personal Trainer. My Mom is a huge part of my motivation to help others get healthy. I carry her with me everyday.
