It wasn’t just the weight. I was very unhappy with life. I have a beautiful family that loves me, but I wasn’t so in love with myself. At a certain point I felt like I was letting myself down and the people I love, but I never understood what it was. Then one day in the bathroom, I looked in the mirror and just cried. I must have stood there and cried for an hour. Because of the depression that’s how I allowed myself to gain the weight. I was walking lost!!!! Throughout the past year I gained over 40 pounds, and was disgusted by the sight of my own body. That’s when I decided I had enough. I needed to love Robyn and want better for myself.
The very next day, I started walking the stairs in my house for 10 minutes in the morning, after the kids got on the bus. Then I started drinking a gallon of water every day. After that, I went completely in and never looked back. By the fall of 2013 I lost a total of 45 pounds from living a healthier lifestyle, and my whole life became much clearer! The depression melted away with the weight. As the pounds shed, I really learned how strong I was. I learned that I could overcome so many adversities, because life is so worth living to the fullest.
At first it started with helping my girlfriends out to lose the weight. Then I realized my true PASSION and JOURNEY was a to help as many people as I could who are a in similar, dark place. In the fall of 2013, I became a Fitness instructor, and vowed to use my PASSION of Health and Fitness to help others on their JOURNEY.
