She’s our favorite patient turned staff member at Illuminate - Meet Brenda! On her 30th Birthday, Brenda was severely depressed and pushing 300lbs when she decided that it was time to make a change. We met her at our office when she lost over a 💯 pounds. She LOVED her new body, but there were some issues that couldn’t be addressed with diet and exercise. Together, we developed a 3 stage plan that addressed her concerns while making safety the number one priority. She is now just 35 days from her final surgery and is excited to share her journey with you! Feel free to ask questions. In the meantime, get to know a little bit more about our Miss [Queen] B 🐝
First-- I am SO GRATEFUL for each of my pregnancies.
But watching your body go through so many changes isn't always easy. I had been feeling like I didn't quite have the "fit" pregnancy I really wanted. I didn't workout every single day, I gained way more weight than I planned, and I def didn't keep the toned arms I worked so hard for 💪🏻
But when this picture came up the other day of me pregnant with Kyla, I realized just how many positive changes I HAVE made and the DiFFERENCE it has made. .
- ate whatever I wanted, did not work out,
SO much swelling, SO much heartburn .
This pregnancy: Ate clean 80% of the time, Worked out 3-4 days a week, Drank a superfood shake daily
, No swelling, Hardly any heartburn or indigestion, Perfect blood pressure throughout .
Small changes over time make a big difference 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I'm so glad I took the opportunity to learn how to take better care of myself 💗
