I was fat and miserable, too ashamed to look at myself in the mirror, too heavy to keep up with my kids. Because of a war injury—I broke my back serving in Iraq—and the weight I had put on, I could barely walk.
So I was spending more and more time in my wheelchair. And I was miserable.
Until I saw the Brazil Butt Lift infomercial—that’s when I said, ‘that’s how I want to look.’ Because of my spinal issues and the nerve damage, I had to start out slowly. At first it was one video every 2 weeks, then every week, and finally, after six months, I had the strength to tackle the 60-day program!
Losing the weight took the stress off my back and relieved the pain. So I don’t need my wheelchair anymore. I can walk, ‘hands-free’—something my Physical Therapist thought I’d ever do. I also feel like Brazil Butt Lift helped me with my brain injury, by forcing me to think at a faster tempo. I can’t say enough about Brazil Butt Lift and Tanya, my Coach, who pushed me along my journey.
Today, I can run and walk and even dance—thanks Leandro. But what I love most is when my kids look at me and say ‘if mom can do it, anyone can’!
