Hilda

Contributing Writer

Hilda is truly an inspiration to those in her community as she has been a living example of what it means to take control of one’s life and live life to the fullest.  Hilda knows all too well the challenges involved with balancing her role as a mother and career professional.  After sixteen years of putting others first and herself last, she made a decision that changed her life tremendously.  On New Year’s Eve 2011, she made a commitment to take care of herself – mind, body, and spirit.  As a result of her hard work and dedication, Hilda achieved phenomenal weight loss success.  She lost 40 pounds in 15 months, dropping from a size 14 to a size 6.

Passionate.  Committed.  Dynamic.  These are just a few words that describe Hilda’s work and life mission to inspire others toward living a life full of happiness and vitality.  Today, she is truly living an awesome life and positively impacts hundreds of men and women each year.  As a college professor, Hilda challenges students to explore how they can improve their lives.

Pam

Contributing Writer

 

img_4609

Pam is a quirky Georgia Peach who struggles daily for her right to be selfish, fearless, and carefree. A single mother of a 25 year old man-child, she is also a friend, mentor, cheerleader, and coach. In her free time she frets over her on again off again relationship with fitness, attends wine tastings, festivals and various other random things to get her out of her comfort zone. She has a self esteem blog and is a tarot/angel card reader.

Pam is extremely excited to be a contributing writer and will share perspectives of her process of healing from a broken heart, love, low self esteem and a fight to unapologetic about who she is.

She also will occasionally refer to her alter ego Penelope. Penelope smokes weed, cusses, talks trash, and will occasionally show up when she Pam is not being true to herself.

We welcome them both!
