I really believe CrossFit has saved my life. Around this time last year I was 298 pounds. I was in a deep depression from the loss of my little brother and I was using food to cope. I would say to my friends. “I eat because I am depressed and I am depressed because I eat, it is a vicious cycle.”
I am happy, strong and incredibly healthy, but that hasn’t always been my truth. After making some lazy and unhealthy choices in the first 3 years of mother hood and while enduring deployments as a spouse of a soldier, I saw many of my friends getting weight loss surgery to surprise their husbands upon their homecoming I wanted that too!
