Hello! My name is Chelsea White, but most of you have and will come to know me as Chizzle! I am a native of the southside of Chicago, and currently residing in the state of Michigan. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor– GO Blue! And my life goal is to be the BEST ME!
So how did I become a health and wellness nut?!
WELLLLLLL! I was never given the joy of having a father in my life. I was raised by my mother alongside my two older sisters. Our family always seemed to be struggling monetarily, and of course, finding money to feed all of us was not always easy. My mother spent large amounts of her earnings on education, sending my sisters and I to schools she believed would provide us with a better education. Thus, we ate unhealthily for the most part, consuming fried, processed, and fat laden foods. Those habits followed me for most of my adolescence. I was my heaviest weight around the age of 15/16, weighing in at 245 lbs. I can never forget that doctor visit; the doctor mentioning that my neck was darkening, the first signs of diabetes. I cannot say it was that moment that made me change my habits. However, it was the hurtful remarks shared by those surrounding me, and the displeasure of looking at my appearance in the mirror, that led me to change my life…forever (as I now know!).
My journey has left me 85 pounds less, but I have gained so much during this forever journey of being fit and transforming. I am elated to be able to share with the world my passion of helping others obtain the same happiness while leading a healthy and active lifestyle. I am forever humbled by my transformation, and I am proud to be FAT!
All of the light and love,
