success story: spunky loses 114 pounds and quits smoking

Kind Lifer Spunky shares her story of total transformation and a new life for her young family.

I am a healer. I have studied massage therapy and it would seem that wellness and living healthy just go hand in hand with healing; however, I have not always been healthy. I was obese in 2009, I weighed 254 lbs, which was the heaviest I have ever been. I was a smoker, and I could not even walk up stairs without getting winded! It took me a long time to decide to start living a well and kind-to-the-planet life! My boyfriend and I have taken on a better lifestyle for our daughter, Izzy. She is my world and I want to be there for her always. I now weigh 140 and my boyfriend is at 162. I lost 114 pounds and he lost 86 pounds! We feel great and eat less and have more energy! Remember, Food is Fuel. Our bodies need nutrients and vitamins to survive. If I am not getting that from my food, I will not put it in my body. I am so glad we made all the changes we have. It takes a lot of will power, but anyone can do it. I also quit smoking with no help at all! Our daughter is our world, and I want her to look at food the same way, and she does! She is kind as well, to the planet and our furry friends!

Spunky, thank you so much for sharing your story, and congrats to you and your boyfriend!
