My name is Felicia Starks. I am a certified personal trainer and lifestyle weight management specialist. Many of my readers and training clients trust me for one reason more than any other. Because when it comes to really struggling with my weight…
I’ve been there! As in topping the scales at 170 pounds.
I was born and raised in the South and was introduced to good ol’ Southern cooking at an early age. Like many people today I picked up some bad habits with diet, nutrition and exercise. (Or lack thereof.)
I was a slave to food for years. I would eat every 2 hours (since the “experts” always told us to do that.) But it didn’t stop there. I counted calories. I journaled everything I ate from meals to snacks. And even though I had some success losing weight, (which I wanted to do before starting a family) I still didn’t have the lean body I truly desired.
A move to the West Coast is where EVERYTHING changed. There I absolutely embraced my new one sentence personal mission statement: “I eat to live instead of living to eat.” And don’t think I’m sacrificing when it comes to my lifestyle. I enjoy healthy & hearty meals as well as desserts and more.
When I added my love for fitness, something magical happened. I have NEVER had so much energy! My new look gave me supreme confidence.
I share my story to partner with and inspire women to live a fit, healthy lifestyle, have fun and be fabulous & fearless in fitness and their finances. I truly believe there are no limits to what we can accomplish in life; while keeping ourselves as a priority on our to-do list. My love for fitness increased 10x once I decided to get in the best shape of my life before my 40th birthday in 2014.....that was an absolute game changer and I have not looked back. My goal is to inspire another person into action and show them that if I can do it, they can improve their health and look good stark naked too!
