My name is Michelle Ferrell. I am from Lexington, NC. I am 33 years old, the mother of two girls, and I have been married for 16 years.
I started my weight loss journey on January 8, 2015 after having several issues with my health, mainly kidney stones. On that day, I weighed 164 pounds. I was the heaviest I have ever been, and this includes being pregnant with my two girls.
I decided I wanted to change the way I felt about myself, as well as my health. Since that day, I have lost 44 pounds and now weigh 120 pounds. I have gone from a size 12 to wearing size two and four. I work out five to six days per week, eat healthy, and focus on drinking lots of water.
I no longer struggle with kidney stones and I feel great! I am a photographer and I love taking portraits of my family, but I would always hide from the camera due to being overweight. I can honestly say I now have my confidence back and I am no longer hiding from the camera. I am thankful for the support and encouragement that I receive daily from the manager, Donna, at my local Snap Fitness. I hope to inspire others to get fit and healthy.
