Project Description

“In August 2015 I was in desperate need to change my life style. I had 3 miscarriages and was finding myself depressed and hopeless of what to do. I wanted more kids and I was finding my body not working. I was also diagnosed with some health concerns that would make it hard to have more children. So, for the first time in my life I decided I needed to help me; which is not something I like to do. I decided to call Tj who I have know forever and talk to him about helping get me healthy. I told him it would be hard for me to spend the money on myself, (with 3 boys I am generally my last thought), but I was willing for my kid’s sake. They need a confident mom who enjoys life and who can keep up with them.

I will be honest I did not feel I was all that worth it. Now that we are 4 months in Tj has shown me I am very much worth it. He has been very patient, sweet and has had more encouragement then I can express. We have had such a roller-coaster when we were on with the diet and fitness it was awesome, but we had our moments–(ie. me)–I had some mental struggles that I had to push past and boy was Tj there with me through that. He encouraged me and hung in there through it all.
I can’t tell you how grateful I am for him in those moments. We have made so much physical progress! In just 4 months I have dropped 25 Ibs., went from a size 12 to a size 4 and overall feel GREAT. Although all of that is fantastic we also made many emotional changes too!! I am super energetic and have so much more self-confidence then I have ever had. Even my husband says that’s what he likes the most of this whole journey–I am happier and I am confident with who I am. Tj helped not just get a body I never thought I would see again, but he helped show me who I am: one who can over come all things, who is strong, beautiful and worth what life has for me!! Thank you Tj!!
