Amanda is another winner of our GNC Treat Yourself recipe contest on Pinterest.  She has quite an amazing transformation story that you won’t want to miss. Without further adieu…

“Hey everyone! I’m excited and honored that Kelly asked me to share a little bit about myself, and my healthy lifestyle with GNC’s readers.

So Hi! My name is Amanda. I’m a work at home 31 year old Graphic Designer with 3 school age children. I also run a blog at chronicling my daily life including everything fitness, wellness, and healthy living related.

As you can imagine being in the best health is pretty much a necessity for someone as busy as myself.  Unfortunately, a few years ago this wasn’t my story or my lifestyle. I was severely overweight falling into what was considered “morbidly obese”. I felt awful and I knew I had to make a change.  I committed to turn my life around and thus began my journey to health and fitness. After two years of hard work and changing the way I viewed food, I found myself  130+ pounds lighter and forever transformed.

Ever since I have found my passion in sharing what I’ve learned through my own journey with others. I love to blog about my workouts, what I eat, and share recipes that incorporate my favorite GNC products. Every day I am amazed at what our bodies can accomplish when they are nourished through great supplements, proper nutrition, and exercise.

Currently I’m living my own version of the “Respect Yourself” lifestyle to the fullest.  Bring it on life, whatcha got for me?!”
