Lillie’s Story

When COVID happened, my job started fluctuating. I was cleaning homes at that time, and most people didn’t want to have someone come to their home anymore. I started exercising a lot, and since then I’ve lost over 65 pounds, cured my 4+ year struggle with acne naturally, and began pole dancing to aid my self-confidence journey. My period cramps are gone, as is my back pain. 

COVID allowed me to dive deeper into my healthy lifestyle journey. If I had still been working, I would have been thinking about my next move regarding finances: I wouldn’t really have had an opportunity to think about whether I should eat better or exercise.

I started establishing a relationship with myself, as opposed to just focusing on the relationships that I have with other people.

There wasn’t a specific trigger that led me to do all this exercising, it was more of a collection of things. I started to really look at my life and the lives of others around me — my friends, my family. I asked myself, “What do I want, what do I want to be, how do I want to feel?”

I pointed a finger at myself and started thinking, ‘OK, you’re not perfect. You're not this super-confident person you think you are. There is a lot of healing that I had to do. And I think the first part of that was accepting who I was physically, emotionally, and mentally in those moments. When I started doing that, I started establishing a relationship with myself, as opposed to just focusing on the relationships that I have with other people. When you start to love yourself, you start seeing who else really loves you. 

I want to help people change their lives even after the pandemic. I don’t have a set career path yet, but I know I want to keep inspiring people, and that motivates me to keep getting better.
