The Struggle is Real

I have struggled with my weight for the past 10 years.  The scale kept going up and I kept pretending that it didn't bother me.  I was having fun.  I was eating whatever I wanted.  I was having as many cocktails as I wanted.  My clothes kept getting tighter and I was forced to buy bigger sizes.  It bothered me, but I just kept pushing it off to the side and I would find outfits that would hide the parts of me that I disliked the most.  In pictures, I would often think to myself...that doesn't even look like me.  But for some reason, it still didn't register.  Sure, I tried a few diets over the years.  I tried cutting out carbs and had some luck temporarily.  But then I looked at a french fry, and I gained it all back and then more on top of that!  It was out of control.  

I had pretty much given up on dating because I had dated all of the wrong guys who treated me poorly.  I finally found Mr. Awesome in October of 2015.  At my heaviest weight, this amazing man wanted me.  How was that possible?  He thought I was beautiful, even though I wasn't skinny like I used to be.  So, of course...that did not help with my motivation.  I was fat and happy in love.  Or so I thought.  While looking at my friend's profiles on Facebook, I had seen a couple of them transition into healthier bodies with the help of NuYou Weight Loss and More in Onalaska.  So I started asking questions and in November of 2016, I went in for a free consultation.  They told me everything about the program.  The cost, how it would go, my commitment, etc.  I left the clinic and I did not sign up that day.  I wasn't ready to commit.

January 21, 2017 Mr. Awesome proposed to me and made me the happiest woman on the planet.  But within 12 hours that would all change.  The next morning, I fell backwards off of the stage at Wedding World and I suffered a traumatic brain injury.  As you know, I lived!  It was a miracle.  Although there was intense therapy, difficult healing procedures, and I'm still recovering...I'm alive.  That day, everything changed.  My outlook on life and how I viewed it.  I was not healthy.  I was too over weight and I was unhappy.  Once I was cleared by doctors to start a weight loss program, it was time to start.  I went back to NuYou in February 2017 and started the program on February 28th.  I knew it wasn't going to be easy.  I knew it was going to take will power and dedication.  But I knew that after what I had suffered through with my accident, I could handle anything. 

I started with the NuYou Fast 1000 program, did the NuYou Fast 800 program and also tried the NuYou Pronto program.  The journey has not been easy, but it has been worth every dollar I've spent and every decision I've made to make healthier choices to get to a better me.  I'm a brand new person.  As of October 27, 2017 I lost 80 pounds and over 80 inches.  I'm healthy, happy, and I love shopping for clothes.  No more size 18 pants and XXL shirts.  I'm now wearing a size 8/10 pants and a Medium size shirt.  It feels amazing and now I'm happy and most importantly, I'm healthy!  It's your turn to start the next chapter.  Click here!

SNOWBALL FUN WITH AMY DUPONT

ICYMI...

Our friend Amy DuPont who used to work on one of our local TV stations is now working at Fox6 in Milwaukee, and she's gone viral!  On Wednesday, Amy was about to go live when her photographer nailed her in the face with a snowball.  Amy had to go live within 30 seconds and had to pull herself together.  She's a pro!  Being that Amy and I are besties (she was in my wedding this past October), we got an exclusive interview with Amy this morning!  Check it out!  And when Ellen calls...remember who loves you most :)

And because we can't stop watching it, here's the snowball to the face!

It's designed mostly for non-phone devices, like a tablet or iPod Touch.  It's only available in the US on Apple's iOS for now, but it's coming soon to Google Android and Amazon Kindle devices  Seems safe, but as the parent...you're in control!  Click here to learn more
