The reason why I started working out and how it’s has changed my life in a positive waysπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈ success starts with self- discipline πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’–πŸ‘‹πŸ½βœŠπŸ½πŸ™πŸΌ

I’m Ann, my friends call me Ahlima πŸ™ƒ I am 49-year-old stay at home mom with three kiddos and a long time partner.

In 2011 I had to undergo 10 eye surgeries to be able to see again after all of the pain and suffering that I went through I was also going through allot more stuff which was allot to deal with and on top of it I have three little humans to raised , at the time I was feeling so depressed about my situation and I didn’t know what to do but pray to God for his direction to save my life. One day I was watching tv one day and the commercial was so inspirational, it’s says success starts with self- discipline, then all of a sudden I started thinking I need to start working out again this was June of 2016 and I had developed eating disorder which was very bad for me because I was losing so much weight that I started looking and feeling sick. I weighed 104lbs I was wasting away and I knew I needed to get help otherwise I wasn’t going to live long to be able to take care of my kid’s. I was so scared then I knew asking for help was the only option πŸ™πŸΌ

I decided to drive to LVAC to get a membership, at first I was skeptical because I didn’t know what to expect and if I could be dedicated to take on a challenge like that but I started praying to God give me the courage to go to the counter to sign up and I did amen πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏽

and all of a sudden I started feeling motivated to asked a sales associate at LVAC to help me with a coach and a trainer after that I was committed to working out for myself and I started lifting weights and set a routine that was continuing to challenge me, no matter what I would always get up in the morning take care of my kids drop them off at school and went straight to the gym and before you know it I was 129lbs with muscles and I loved looking in the mirror again and food was my new best friend again. In April of 2018 I was going through allot and I stopped going to the gym and wasn’t eating. I tried to motivate myself but I couldn’t so I didn’t workout for a year straight and I was feeling sick from not eating and so weak then in May of 2019 it was around my birthday I was turning 48 , I said to myself I can start working out and be dedicated again like I use to do and then over time I started working out at home with videos from Instagram and Facebook and YouTube I was starting to be Inspired by a girl on Instagram called Heidi Sommer she was my inspiration to get my workouts back on track and decided I need to get back in the gym even though being a stay home mom takes up allot of my time I knew in other for me to be healthy I need to workout and eat well so I started working out again on my 48th birthday May of 2019.. I was 106lbs , which wasn’t good so I worked out for a year straight I am now 113lbs healthy and happier than ever and I’m 49yrs old I love my Instagram name growwithlima because I’m growing my best self at home with my family and I am so excited to continue to live a very healthy lifestyle and I’ll always keeps challenging myself with adventures for years and years to come.πŸ™πŸΌβ€οΈπŸ‘‹πŸ½πŸ’ͺ🏽
