Hi there! My name is Andrea and I could not be more excited to be joining Teddi’s “All In” coaching team! I was born and raised just outside of Toronto, Canada, but moved to California to go to Law School. I currently live in LA with my husband and two boys.
When I was younger, staying fit, living a balanced life, and taking care of myself was never an issue for me. I LOVED to exercise, ate pretty healthy, and got the rest I needed for myself and my demanding job as an attorney.
Then my two beautiful boys came along! As a mother, my focus shifted from my needs to my family’s needs. Between work and my family, my health and wellness took a back seat to their schedules and just about anything else related to raising two rambunctious boys. To be honest, I always felt a little guilty anytime I flirted with the idea of taking some time to better myself.
I would look in the mirror and try and make peace with how uncomfortable I felt inside and out. Sure, I had gained weight, but it was more than that…I had lost my spark and confidence. In short, I had lost Me.
I tried every workout routine, diet, and even saw a doctor specializing in nutrition, but nothing would stick. Emotionally, I couldn’t overcome that hurdle of guilt I felt when doing something for myself rather than my boys, and physically, nothing was working anyway. The idea of getting my body back seemed impossible.
That’s when I heard about “All In” by Teddi Mellencamp. I signed up for Teddi’s jump start program early this year. Today I am happy to say that not only have I lost the nearly 25 lbs that I gained, but I am the strongest, sexiest, and most confident I have EVER been, which has made me the best person and mother I can be.
This program is about so much more than just weight loss. It’s about holding yourself accountable by taking care of yourself and realizing that you CAN have it all because you deserve it! I can’t wait to share this mindset and lifestyle with the brave women and men who choose to transform their lives using Teddi’s accountability program just like I did!
