Hello! My name is Chelly B. and I am in love with everything related to health and wellness. I am also very enthusiastic about helping others become the best version of themselves.
After graduating from Howard University, I printed 263 pounds. It was the hardest part of my life. I didn’t feel good at all. Eight months later, I lost 100 pounds, of course, as I ate cleanly and exercised daily.
Fast forward to 2020; I decided to start my own business focusing on health and wellness. On January 1, I created a weight loss group / community to help people achieve their goals. I made meal plans, workout programs and selfly exercised with people. I also provided them with motivation, company and support. Everything went great until the gym closed due to the pandemic.
During the quarantine, I was stuck at home, stressed, bored and hungry. Gradually he gained weight again. I have to admit that during these six months, I had all the time in the world to exercise, eat right, and focus on the weight loss group. But me? No way. I decided to watch Netflix and eat gorgeously instead.
After talking to friends and family, I realized that it’s not just me gaining extra pounds during quarantine. So on August 25, 2020, I started training at home and eating healthier.

What advice do you want to share with women who want to lose weight? Losing weight and keeping it away is hard work. It doesn’t happen overnight or even for a month. However, if you work hard, stay consistent, and make it fun, you can do it.
