A Life Changing Experience

Submitted by: Carmen Wardwell

Carmen's Success Story

I am sharing my own success story because I want others to understand that I know what it is like to be on both ends of the health/fitness spectrum. At one point just 3 short years ago I had been modeling, dancing, and acting. I was in great shape, as I had to be for the line of work I was doing, and I was strong and confident.
After I had got pregnant with my son, my healthy/fit lifestyle went out the window completely, resulting in a 65 lb weight gain. I was unhappy, with almost no self-confidence or self-esteem. I partnered with an amazing health and wellness company, but my success was hindered by my own lack of self-belief!

Just over a year ago, I decided that enough was enough; that I would change my life. I incorporated my business' healthy eating plan and starting using my gym membership again. I was so out of shape, and had no motivation to get through a regular workout routine.

That was also around the time I learned that my gym had added the Zumba Fitness workout classes to their schedules. Having been a huge fan with my own original 4-disc set stored away, I immediately jumped into the classes. Thus began my transformation.

When I began my journey to changing my pre/post-natal lifestyle, I weight 196. I am now 163, and still dropping! I have regained a level of confidence and esteem that I have not had in such a long time. I am working towards getting back into modeling shape and pursuing fitness modeling as a hobby once my goal is achieved!

This experience was definitely a blessing in disguise. It has uncovered a passion that I did not have, and I now have a clear vision for my future! I want to share my success with others, and help them attain their own!

This is just the beginning of a fulfilling career!
