"I started to make 5 core changes on October 13, 2015 at 190 pounds and size 12-14. As of July 20, 2016, I am 143 pounds and size 4-6.
Monique K. Rose created this fitness club after losing 60 pounds in 18 months postpartum. Here's her story:
Prior to my pregnancy, I was 160 pounds and wore size 9-10. During my 6-week postpartum check-up, I learned that I was an unbelievable 215 pounds and wearing size 12-14. Even my doctor was baffled. I juggled motherhood, school, and work feeling disappointed, depressed, and discouraged. I lost my confidence as my self-esteem slowly diminished. I felt that this would be my steady weight for the rest of my 20's. Times when I mustered up strength and motive, I did workout DVDs like p90x and temporarily cut out my favorite foods like oxtails, french fries, cheese cake and eating out. However, I only lost 10 pounds by the time my prince turned 7 months. I decided to make 5 core lifestyle changes that was fueled by my passion, determination, and motivation!
