A little bit about my Journey
Hello! My name is Michelle. I live in Massachusetts and grew up near the Cape and Islands. I currently live closer to New Hampshire now, but find it still very beautiful inland. I have two beautiful sons, 2 and 6 months, a loving husband who works very hard for this little family. I am a stay at home mom and literally cannot start my day without at least one cup of coffee. I love making healthy meals for my family and always try to find new recipes to use up leftovers (all you mommas know just what I mean!). My children are the world to me and I love being able to stay home and watch them learn and grow. I couldn't imagine being away from them, even when they can be a handful, I love being their rock and constant comforter. Baby snuggles all day is literally what I live for these days!
I haven't always been a wife and mother, I have worked many years as a CNA (Certified Nurses Assistant) and many more years as a VA (Veterinary Assistant. One of my other passions is everything animal. I love caring for and nurturing sick animals, seeing owners Joy when their loved pets get to come home is why I chose that profession when I was only a little girl.
Though animals are my passion, I knew I wanted a family and to be able to stay home with my babies. As a stay at home mom, my husband has to work longer hours and is away from his family more. I knew I wanted to help my husband with bringing home the bacon, but I also wanted help people, and myself, achieve their weight loss goals. That's why I chose to join It Works! As you can imagine after 2 kids I wasn't the most fit anymore. I had gained 70lbs with my first! and then while trying to loss that weight became pregnant with my second while my first was only 9 months! I ended up over 200lbs and slight diastasis recti.
During postpartum I was trying to eat healthier and I ended up hitting a wall with my weight loss. I had lost all but 10 lbs from baby #2 and still had another 40lbs to go from baby #1. This is one reason I decided to become a distributor for It Works! I have been using the products and have managed to lose 5lbs, which may not seem like much but, for someone who plateaued in their weight loss journey for a couple of months that's huge! And to me any weight loss towards your ultimate goal is cause for excitement!! Progress doesn't have to be fast and furious to see results.
I would love to help you wherever you are on your health journey! Whether you need to lose 5,10,20lbs or just looking to tone and slim down for an event coming up, I want to help you reach that goal!
