| I am 49 years old & a Mother of two. I have a beautiful daughter Alissa who is 20 and a handsome son Anthony who is 15. I was born & raised in the Mid-west & still currently around the same area. My Maxformation Journey started in September ’09. I was depressed, had aches & pains in places I never thought were possible & high blood pressure. I was getting ready to turn 45 in September & I have always thought as age just being a number but I felt like I was 60. I found myself tipping the scale at 193.5 & my body fat % was 36.5. This was the heaviest that I have ever been except when I was pregnant with my daughter. I knew this was not a good thing because I had already had heart surgery at the young age of 40. I knew it was time make the change and stop feeling sorry myself or die. So, September 19, ’09 was the day I got a second chance of life & I never looked back. I am proud to say that I am still living the dream. On September 19, 2014 will mark my 5 year anniversary to a better and healthy lifestyle change & I also will be 50!! I also had something else to celebrate this year. After being out of work for over a year during my transformation I now have two part time jobs doing what I love. In March 2011 I got a job at a fitness center and hope to start working on my personal trainer’s certification next year. Then in May 2011 I started working at QC Max Muscle and received my certification as a Fitness Nutrition Coach. I have to tell you it is an amazing feeling doing something that I love by helping others through my own experience!
