Growing up in a family where food is a centerpiece of our Louisiana Creole culture, it has always been a challenge for me to sustain a healthy weight and lifestyle, particularly because of my personal love for food—shopping for it, cooking it, and eating it. After gaining a substantial amount of weight and suffering from major lower back/nerve issues at 25 years old, I decided it was time for me to take back control of my life.
I started at BBD and that turned out to be the best decision I could have ever made. That day I became part of an extended family that was committed to supporting me and my endeavor to become a healthier person.
Since then, I have dropped a total of 32 pounds, 13% body fat, and have become a much stronger and more active individual than I was—physically and mentally.
