Amanda is 35-years-old and has struggled with her weight for as long as she can remember.
Amanda gave birth to healthy twins (a boy and a girl!) on March 3, 2012. It was the happiest day of her life. She was very fortunate in that she was able to carry them to full term and have a natural child birth.
But in carrying the twins to full term, she gained 86 pounds in her pregnancy, and weighed 236 pounds at her heaviest.
After her twins were about a year and a a half old, she decided it was time to lose the rest of her excess weight and get healthy again.
She started working out and eating properly. She increased her protein intake and decreased her simple carbohydrate intake.
It took about a year, but she lost 110 pounds! And she has kept it off for two years. When asked about her success, she says “I work very hard in the gym and just as hard in making sure I eat well and live well.”
“I have never been this fit or healthy in my whole life and consider the North Shore Fitness World an integral part of my journey. Every time I come to Steve Nash Fitness World I am motivated to work out harder and am reminded about my fitness goals. It is my happy place.”
We are so proud to have been a part of Amanda’s fitness journey, and glad that we could help her achieve her goal of losing her baby weight and getting back to her pre-baby body!
