25% of women and 16% of men have been sexually abused as children. I am one of those women. As a result, I grew up with a lot of shame and guilt. The effects were long lasting, leading to an emotionally abusive marriage, hiding behind androgynous clothing, excess body weight and giving up team oriented, social careers to work (and hide) behind a computer screen.
I RELEASED all abuse, 21 pounds of excess weight, and extreme digestive discomfort while I BUILT positive & supportive relationships, a healthy & fit lifestyle, and a wonderful support team. The catalyst for this change was nutritional cleansing and replenishment and the amazing opportunities for personal development that came with it. The effect of this change was freedom. Freedom in my body. Freedom in my heart.
Imagine building a life where you live entirely with what you are passionate about! If you have not found your passion, imagine a life where you walk within your curiosities until you do have one! Imagine, living a life of freedom.
I dare you to live out your dreams!
I dare you to get out of your comfort zone!
I dare you to make people turn their heads because you are FIT and on FIRE!
The Challenge was just one of the great tools that made a big difference. The transformation you see is far beyond a physical one alone. The structure of the Challenge provided motivation, goals, deadlines, and great incentives. It was the spark that propelled me to embrace and step out into the person deep down inside, I wanted to be and knew I COULD be.
I encourage all of you to do the same.
