I gained weight during my pregnancy due to being confined to my bed for half of my pregnancy . Then, I lost my mom and many close family members in a short amount of time. I became depressed and I turned to food for comfort. Because of the rapid weight gain I had many foot and knee surgeries. My doctor sent me to the P.R.E.P. program at ACAC, which I was hesitant about, since I have never joined a gym before. I started working with a personal trainer and became stronger and less depressed and since lost 95 pounds. Inspired by my trainer and my new found love for exercise, I decided to become a personal trainer.
