I’ve been overweight my entire life and have known it. Growing up I was always bigger than my friends. I was involved in sports as a kid but never really worked hard at them. I mostly enjoyed sports because I was able to hang out with my friends. As a kid, my diet mostly consisted of pizza, spaghetti, hotdogs and mashed potatoes. I HATED vegetables and tolerated fruits. The only veggies I would eat were corn or peas and carrots drowned in ranch dressing. All of these bad habits resulted in me being obese. Eventually, I was tired of being the “fat” one and being insecure about my weight.
Vanessa literally changed my life. Working out with her has not only helped me lose weight but it has also given me a new level of confidence and a new appreciation for my body and what it is capable of doing. She has added years to my life and given me a new energy. She is one of the nicest people I know and truly cares about helping me achieve my goals. When I mess up, she doesn't give me a hard time or scold me. Alternatively, she encourages me to get back on the horse and pushes me to be my best.
The secret to losing weight is to be consistent and Vanessa keeps me reliable and on track so that I stay consistent. I'm so thankful for Vanessa and all that she has helped me achieve in the past 2 years!
