Amie came into my life during a tough and trying time. I always thought I had PCOS, but doctors never showed any signs of wanting to confirm my fears. After finally getting pregnant and enduring a rough pregnancy and delivery, I pushed hard enough and got tested. While it was nice to finally have confirmation, I didn’t know where to go from there.
Doctors put me on some basic meds and tried to get me to go on diets that will do more harm than good to those that have this condition. All of the appointments and contradicting instructions I was given was not helping me in any shape, way, or form. My weight was out of control, and I finally reached my breaking point. I felt like crap all of the time, and that’s not ideal when you have an infant to chase after.
That’s when I found Amie.
She is someone that I can relate to on many levels. Amie is a wealth of knowledge and a great coach. Even with a great coach though, I still fell off track. My husband lost his job, my grandmother passed away a month later, and I underwent shoulder surgery a month after that. If I thought I hit a low before, it was nothing like what I was going through then. With the exception of my husband and son, I shut everyone out, and that included Amie.
After several months, I finally started to pick myself up and reached back out to her. She welcomed me back with open arms, and it was the farthest thing from what I was expecting. It was nice to know that someone understood and reminded me that I am only human. I am proud to call her a friend. Focusing on my health again has helped pick me up out of the funk, and currently, I am down 12 pounds in 6 weeks. I still have quite a bit to go, but with Amie’s guidance and encouragement, I am optimistic to reach this goal by the end of the year.
