The feature appeared in their, "Get Inspired!" section. The article discusses bits and pieces of my story and my weight loss/fitness journey. It also mentions a few details on how I lost the weight. I thought the article was really well thought out and written. The headline quote that was used is just........ pure awesomeness! They couldn't have picked a better quote!

"Life is amazing after my weight loss." 

It's no secret that I had more than just physical issues with weight that I needed to desperately work on. I had to change my entire way of thinking. Everything about myself needed a transformation. I was a negative person filled with a lot of self hatred for myself and my own life. Throughout my journey and after a major weight loss.... I am full of gratitude and forever grateful for my second chance at life. I don't dwell on the negative things. I dwell on the positive things in my life. I set aside some time each day and reflect on the things I am most grateful for and in return makes me a happier human being. And yes.... life is amazing overall after my weight loss. But don't get me wrong... some days are STILL a struggle. 

I've been getting tons of amazing feedback on the article!

You guys loved my transformation so much that it was recognized in the, "You Loved These Transformation Posts!" section in the next/following issueNov/Dec issue!

Thank you all for the overwhelming inspiring messages of support and feedback! I appreciate and love you all! And many thanks to the STRONG Fitness team for being so amazing and kind.
