I first contacted Amanda back in Sept of 2015. At that time in my life I was in need of a change. I was stuck and and my mental state of mind, well it was depressed. I had been watching Amanda on social media for a long time and wondered where she got her happiness. How was this girl so full of life all the time? What medication is she taking? So I emailed her. her responses forever changed my life. Amanda is a down to earth girl, who is REAL. She has struggles. She has weaknesses. But they do not control her. I immediately was safe with her. I knew there would be no judgements made on my life. She was only here to help me. I started one of the programs she suggests and I lost 15 pounds my 21 days. From then on I was hooked. I no longer debated medication for my anxiety. I no longer debated therapy (at that moment). Between the program and Amanda my body physically changed and my mental state of mind began to change. Over the next year, I stayed on top of what amazing encouraged. My efforts would be recognized. My attitude as well. another one of Amanda’s programs has indefinitely changed my life. For 7 days I detoxed from all the negativity in my life. And it was at a time that I again was having some very dark days. Journaling, reflecting, growing as a person, as an individual seriously helped me get a new aspect on life that I never had before. Being a part of Amanda’s accountability group, has given me some remarkable friendships. I have learned so much in the last 2 years. Not just about eating better and working out. I have learned so much about myself. I have learned that it is ok to be proud of yourself. It is ok to struggle because we all do. It is ok to encourage others. It is ok to build others up when so often we are all being broken down. It is ok to fail just as long as you don’t let yourself stay down for long. Its ok to show a body that you have always dreamed of having because you have worked so hard to get it. Amanda changed my life a year and a half ago but also, I changed my life a year and a half ago. She gave me the courage. She gave me the inspiration. She gave me the tools to become the person I have always been meant to be. She believed in me so that I could believe in me.
I am very much unstoppable.
I owe so much to Amanda. She gave me confidence. She gave me validation. She gave me inspiration. She gave me support but above all, she gave me friendship. A genuine friendship. Because of her I can stand tall and say “I am ENOUGH!”
