I’m a small town girl, now a city woman. I grew up connecting with food. Binging on fruit snacks after school and continued emotional eating throughout my adult life.
I moved to Regina, SK for University and ate cafeteria food for the first two years while living on my own. I got my degree in Kinesiology and Health Studies and worked with people with disabilities for the next six years.
In that time, I lost my last grandparent, got married and divorced young. So guess what was always there for me? FOOD!
The recent past five years I got my Diploma in Nursing and have been working on numerous wards.
At the start of 2020, my anxiety, depression were at their worst. My overall well-being was suffering. I didn’t like to go out in public or to small social gatherings. It was time to change.
I started my workouts and was more thoughtful in my eating! I added in some nutritional shakes and with consistency have been down 40lbs for a year. Also, during this time I got married to a wonderful man!
I feel happier and healthier! My joints don’t ache and I’m ready to live a healthier life!
