I have spent the majority of my life taking care of others. I am the strong one, the one everyone always goes to when they need help. In May 2018, I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that shook my family to its core. I underwent brain surgery and spent the summer recovering. I was not able to move around a lot, so I spent a lot of time thinking. Having a brain tumor had nothing to do with my weight, but it was definitely a wake-up call. I knew I needed to make a change in my life so that I could grow old with my husband and be around to watch my boys grow up. I knew that I needed to make little changes, so in August 2018, two days before I went back to work, I decided to give up Pepsi. I’ve been drinking about four cans a day for many years…and that’s all I drank. That went surprisingly well and I haven’t had one since!
I drive about 40 minutes each way for work every day, so I spend a lot of time in the car. I’ve heard Brittany Styles talk about Nu You on the radio for a long time. Out of curiosity, I started following the Facebook page and people I know started popping up there losing 10, 20, 30, etc. pounds. I thought, wow people I actually know are doing this and having great success, maybe this is the place for me. I’ve tried everything else, maybe I should give this a shot.
