Welcome! My name is Kami, I am 37 years old, and I have 5 kiddos that range from 17-8 years old. I have been married to my best friend Phil for 16 years, and everyday is an adventure.

In June of 2014 I was at my goal weight, I was healthy, and happy, and I was training others to reach their goal weight.....then my whole world changed.

On June 18th I got a call that my oldest son had been in a car accident, by the grace of God and the incredible medical staff we were blessed with, he survived a lacerated kidney, severe hemorrhaging, and crushed skull and crushed lung. Day 3 he had a stroke that took away his motor function for his mouth and soft palette. 37 days in the ICU, 60 days in rehab. 7 surgeries, a coil in his kidney, and plate in his head, learning to walk, talk, eat, and relearn basically everything all over again. It was 97 days until I was home with my whole family again. I lived off of stress, worry, and cafeteria food.

Fast forward to today. I am stronger and happier then I have ever been in my life. I finally have the energy and strength to take care of myself again, My son is doing incredible, and I have time for myself.

My body has now become a prison to my happy energetic self. I am 160 lbs, It's obese when your 4'11 and small framed, I am trying to be positive, and remind myself I'm not starting over. I am emotionally and spiritually in better shape then I have ever been, and that means the weight will have no reason to stay on! I am not a number on a scale, but I want a body that works with me not against me.
