About Shandra

Growing up I wasn't ever much more than "a little pudgy" but my childhood was rocky and I entered adulthood with some serious insecurities and lack of self-worth. Within just a few short years I had gained over 100 lbs.  I knew I was fat but I had a busy social life and career, and an amazing boyfriend (now husband) who loved me despite my weight.  I just sort of ignored it. 
Until...one day I stepped on the scale and saw 258 lbs.  I was closer to 300 than 200.  For some reason that number was just too much to bear.  Terrified, I joined a gym and made a commitment to go every single day for 21 days (because I'd heard that's how long it takes to make a new habit.) Then I joined Weight Watchers for a few months and I learned how to eat better.  As soon as I started to see the number going down on the scale, I was all in.  It took me about 9 months to lose 74 lbs and I felt unstoppable.  I hovered around the 200 lb mark for 3 years after that, even through two healthy pregnancies.  
My 2nd son was 7 months old in 2017 when I decided it was time to finish what I started.  After a lot of research, especially regarding auto-immune diseases and IBS of which I suffer, I decided to try a strict low-carb "Ketogenic" and gluten-free diet.  I've lost a total of 103 pounds and feel amazing!
I've learned SO much about weight loss, health, food, and fitness over the past few years
Much love!
