A little more than two years ago I was an unhealthy and frustrated woman. I wanted so badly to love myself and my body, but didn't know how to do it (read my story here). I took a huge leap and joined an incredible online weight loss group, gradually and utterly changing me from the inside out. It was a beautiful, painful, enlightening, grueling, and tender experience.
Over the last few years I have had the pleasure to mentor the new members of this program and consider myself blessed to be keeping company with such dynamic and inspiring women. I see the work they are doing to change their lives, and I am blown away by the persistence and strength I see through each individual process.
This is Kara, a close friend and mother of six.
She recently finished her year of training, and I am in awe at all she has accomplished. She positively radiates what those who long for a healthier lifestyle are seeking: joy, confidence of Self, and a deep desire to make some ripples by sharing real-life knowledge and experience. DId I mention she made all of these changes with a packed schedule, community involvement, blogging, and six young children? Rock. Star.
Take a moment to read her beautifully-real and uplifting story here.
