A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Joanne J. (age 48, mother of 2) for the first time and I am so, so, so proud to share her journey with us.
She came to us a few months ago looking to lean out and under the tutelage of Coach Kim G. who put together a strategy of consistent exercise along with eating more quality foods measured for her and her goals, this STRONG GIRL is down 21 lbs and has also lost over 23 inches.
As far as the scale goes, she is the lightest she’s ever been and feels fantastic! Joanne also borrows her teenage daughter’s clothes! LOL! Love it!
Joanne says, “My daughter Jordan and I went on a mother/daughter trip to Cuba in February. Looking at pictures of myself when we got home, I felt terrible because I felt like I looked like a ” square box”, with no shape whatsoever. I had been following JVB Fitness and Nutrition on Facebook because of STRONG GIRLS Tanya B and Kelly K so I decided it was time to do something for me! It was on my 48th birthday that I decided to sign up with them and I have never looked back.”
What’s more even more special is the fact that Joanne is a Cancer Survivor. She was diagnosed in 2002 at the age of 36 but as everyone can see she has out battled this disease and is kicking butt and feeling (and looking) incredible!
Joanne adds, “12 years ago I was at the lowest point in my life. I was happiest when I was in bed and didn’t have to face the world. I seriously never thought I would be happy again but boy was I wrong! I am the happiest, healthiest version of Joanne I could ever be right at this moment.”
Meeting Joanne and her infectious positive attitude was certainly one of the highlights of my year and I cannot wait to share more of this STRON GIRL’S story.
We’re so proud of you Joanne. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey. More to come…
