Sharing our Successes: Meet Brittany!

Each month, I’m going to be featuring stories of TRIBE members  to help motivate and encourage you to keep pressing on.
I’m kicking off this series with my friend, Brittany, who is a member of the At-Home TRIBE. I hope that while reading her story you are encouraged and that you gain some new insight and motivation to keep pressing on in your own journey.
My name is Brittany. I live in North Carolina with my wonderful husband and our beautiful nine month old daughter.
I am a high school culinary arts teacher and just finished up my eighth year.

I found the At-Home Tribe last fall. I was a new mom that needed an outlet.

Before I had our little girl, I practiced warm yoga four to five days a week. I was addicted to it; I loved it. But because of the hectic schedule, I couldn’t make it to the studio.

I also was a member of a popular weight-loss program. I was truly addicted to my weekly weigh-in. I knew I needed a change for the better. My mother in law had started going to the in person classes with Kara. I knew I needed to get going, so as soon as the doctor released me, I started the At-Home membership.

I suffered from and still fight postpartum depression.

I’ve been very open and honest about it for months.
I was addicted to weighing myself daily because of the necessary weight gain in pregnancy. Sometimes multiple times a day. I reached out to get help with my depression, anxiety, and overall health. I was told that maybe my weight-loss program that I had been a member of for years had served its purpose and that it was time to set it down. Those few words are what I needed to hear.

What I have learned throughout my journey with Wellness Witness and the At-Home Tribe is that I am more than a number.
I am more than the actual size printed on my pants.
I am a momma, a wife, a daughter, a teacher, and a leader.
I have removed the scale from my line of vision.
God doesn’t see me as a number, he sees me as his child. 

Before starting my weight was 158 ; I am currently 147. I do attribute the workouts with helping me lose my baby weight. I am under my pre-baby weight. I have lost inches , my pants that were too tight about two months ago fit great in my thigh area now, and I’m back into my pre-baby clothes!

My energy level is great and I sleep much better now than when I don’t work-out.
I get up early to complete my workouts; I feel like if I take care of my body first thing in the morning, I am more prepared to take care of those around me.
I also drink 33 ounces of water first thing in the morning. It wakes up the digestive system to help the metabolism.
My take-away from the At-Home Tribe is that I am not alone, I am made for hard things and to give myself a little bit of grace!
