Danielle's Transformation Story...It ALL started with her saying YES!

Today, I want to take the time to recognize an amazing woman’s transformation.

Danielle came into my life & joined our Imperfectly Balanced community 4 months ago.

If you know Danielle, you know that she is the LIFE of the PARTY! But more than that…she is probably one of the most joyful, compassionate, committed, driven, & hard-working mama's I know!

There truly are not enough words to describe how PROUD I am of Danielle for all of her hard work to reach her health & fitness goals and transform INSIDE-OUT…to become Imperfectly Balanced…

Please take the time to read Danielle’s story in her own words…

1. Tell me about you….
I am a 31-year-old stay at home mom of two beautiful girls, ages 3 and 5. I am happily married to an awesome guy, who owns a flooring company called Nielsen Company. I live in Palm Harbor, FL and love cooking, fitness and going to the beach. A major hobby of mine is creating healthy recipes with lots of flavor.

2. When & Why did you decide to join our challenge group?
I joined in January of this year, and I have always been athletic, but after I had kids, I just totally lost myself. I worked full time, and my guilt and sadness of having to leave my baby girl at home while I went to a total mundane job was just so depressing. We worked really hard and I finally got to quit my job and be with my girls after I had my second. However, after finally getting to where I know I needed to be (home), I got to take a good look in the mirror at what I had allowed myself to become, and I was not happy with it. I knew I had to create time for myself to be able to do something about it. Your motivational posts made me say YES when you asked me about joining, best thing I ever did for myself!

3. What is your transformation? How has your life changed since you said YES? How have you changed body, mind, & spirit since starting your 1st challenge?
I have lost 55lbs (43 from challenges), and 50 inches. I went from a size 18 to a size 10 now, which is smaller than when I got married. My entire life and views about life have changed for the better. My energy levels are up, my stress levels are so much lower, I am so much more self confident, and I want to be in my family pictures! Me and my entire family have become a healthier, happier version of ourselves!!!

4. If someone was deciding whether or not to join a challenge group what would you tell them?
I would to tell them to ABSOLUTELY join!!! Even if you think that you aren't the kind of person to put yourself out there like this, do it because you WILL find that you are!! You never feel alone in this journey, and everyone is on a relatable journey and encourage and lift you up along the way. You will form legitimate friendships, and the entire plan, from meals to exercising is laid out for you on a path to success, all you have to do is follow it. You will finally see what accountability can do for you and your results!

5. Anything else?
You are amazing and what you have done with this group is just incredible! You have completely changed my life, and I will hold you dear in my heart forever. You truly found your calling, and you are genuine with your love and support of your challengers is incredible and inspiring. I am a different person inside and out because of you and I can't thank you enough!

Thank you so much Danielle for being BOLD & allowing me to SHARE your journey in hopes to inspire other women that they can do it too!

You have forever changed my life & our #IBChick Sisterhood wouldn’t be the same without you!!!
