I lost 70lbs with Zumba Fitness!
I have always been overweight. I was the one in the back row and the last one to speak up...From childhood into my adult years, my outside chunky girl held my inner skinny girl hostage. Then one day, I found something that worked... that something was called Zumba Fitness.
I've been teaching Zumba Fitness for 10 years.
And, I've lost 70 lbs. Pretty wild right?!
Born, raised and living in New York until 2005, I am a NY girl 100%. I am a foodie! I love to dance! I love to get things done! and I'm totally down to earth.
I have been able to maintain my 70 lb weight loss, but in most recent years, I've struggled with vitamin and hormonal deficiencies. When I found out, I was like "oh no no...what the F is that about?!" I truly felt lost in a world of sick. It was the end of what I call "the year of the flu"... that entire year I was plagued with a variety of illnesses; my immune system could not ward off the "bad juju". As a Zumba Jammer, I travel often. Ironically enough, during "the year of the flu", I traveled ALOT! I don't even know how I made it through! I counted on my husband, friends and ZFFs alot!
After seeking out the right medical care, I got to the bottom of what was going on. A little thing called hope entered my spirit once again. I started therapy, which was tough at first, but got better. For my lifestyle, I learned what worked and what didn't work. And, if ever self-care meant something...now was the time to be persistent with my self-care. Since then, it's been pretty awesome getting to know the new me.
Right now, I'm losing my last 10... we know how that goes, am I right? The last 10 truly do suck big time! I've been on these last 10 F O R E V E R!
No longer do I eat right and work out to look good...I do it to live good!
~looking good is just a bonus!
