I have a confession to make. I skipped my morning workout.
Yep, instead I went straight to the computer to read and respond to the thoughtful emails, Facebook posts, and blog comments received since sharing my transformation story on KSTP’s Twin Cities Live yesterday.
Let me start this blog by saying: WOW and THANK YOU! I am continually amazed by the outpouring of support 4.5 years into this journey. But mostly, it’s SO COOL to see all of the new folks we’re welcoming into the In the Equation community. Welcome peeps! Read more
Most of you who have followed my transformation journey know that I lost 200+ pounds, 11 dress sizes, and more than 80% of my body fat in 18 months.

Today, my life is full and happy. I not only climb mountains but inspire others to do the same. Read more about my marketing agency, Marketing that Matters, or my In the Equation work here.
