ABOUT BETTE


Hello!

I'm Bette, and I'm glad you popped by my little blog, Somerset Lane.

 


I'm a 29 year old mom (actually 40 something, but who's keeping track) living in Southwest Ontario with my 3 kids, gorgeous hubby, puppy and kitty.

Here is a pic of my loves...



WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME?



When I was growing up, I was always the skinny kid who couldn't put on weight.  I was a picky eater. My parents were always frustrated with my picky eating. 
Fast forward to my first pregnancy at age  25, and I discovered food. I gained 65 lbs. I lost some weight, but just over a year later I was pregnant again and gained 60lbs. Some of the weight came off again, but now I was still carrying weight from my first pregnancy.  Five years later I was expecting my third baby and once again packed on more weight. And thus started my struggle with weight-loss.  I tried every weight loss program and gimmick that I came accross and nothing helped.  I wasn't ready yet.  


This is my mug shot of yet another try at weight loss back in 2013



In January of 2014, I was 60lbs over weight and so very frustrated.  My body ached. I had headaches almost daily. I couldn't sleep at night. I was sad and frustrated.  I decided enough was enough and I need to make a BIG change.
I joined a local Biggest Loser Competition and I was introduced to Usana and RESET. It was like a fog was lifted.  I worked hard. I focused on ME. I learned about why I was losing weight/not losing weight. I found what foods my body needed and didn't need.  For the first time in a long time, I focussed on ME!

Within the next 6 months, I lost just under 60Lbs, came in third in the Biggest Loser Competition and more importantly I gained my LIFE back. The headaches and body aches were gone. And I had energy like I had never experienced before.

WHAT IS NEXT FOR ME?


Over the past year I have learned so much about my own evolving health journey, that I have become passionate about sharing and mentoring others along their own journey! 
Since finishing my own Biggest Loser competition, I now volunteer with the new Biggest Loser teams at my gym to mentor them through their own Weight Loss Journey.
I now want to mentor others and encourage them to make healthier choices, to break bad health habits, and to create a healthy lifestyle. 
It's my Passion.
