I had never seen my self worth, for a variety of reasons. I had worked out with a trainer for a year and could never look at myself in the mirror. I was ashamed of what I saw, no matter what weight I was. In February, a relationship that I thought was going to be my last ended and I realized it was actually a good thing. I started eating better and found Ashley Horner’s trainers.

Six weeks ago I was finally able to start Becoming Extraordinary and everything finally clicked for me. Maybe it’s purification through sweat and pain that did it lol… I see worth in myself and understand the value of investing in me. I am so thankful that I found Ashley’s programs and admire all she stands for. I realized today that I like the woman looking back at me in the gym mirror, flaws and all. In two years I’ll be 40 and I’m determined to make my outside match the inside. I feel like a strong, confident woman now. I know now I’ll attract the right person for me. I went shopping for the first time this past weekend (none of my bras fit and almost all my workout pants won’t stay up) and it felt good to have a positive experience for once in a fitting room. The picture on the left is beginning of March, the picture on the right was yesterday. I know how much work must go into making these training programs, thank you so much for undertaking them to help empower so many women like me.
