About Michelle

Honestly, I was not raised with health as the forefront of our choices. I’m a product of the 80’s (though I was born in ’78) and have rocked the hairstyles and poor nutrition proudly. I am the daughter of a chronic dieter who was the daughter of a chronic dieter and, well, we just kept that as a family tradition. I struggled with weight my entire childhood and young adult life and was put on my first deprivation diet at the age of 9. My metabolism shot, I embarked upon an adventure in eating disorders and exercise obsession by the time most girls were picking out the cutest boys in school. By the time I had my daughter, I was overweight, extremely depressed and completely unable to keep up with life in general. After years of failed fad diets, I cleaned up my act by applying knowledge. I became a trainer, a nutritionist and a certified health nut. My life is different from most, but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
