My name is Lori Miggins and I am a mom of 3 beautiful children, married to my college sweetheart, self-retired Special Education Teacher, and a stay-at-home mom.
I deal with all of the busy mom life, and wear all of the hats, and spend most of my days in the car bringing my kids to all of their activities.
I spent 10 years in Atlanta, GA, 13 years in Winter Garden, FL and we now live in North Carolina! But I am originally from Long Island, NY where I grew up. I lived an amazing childhood, married the man of my dreams, started raising a family, and then my world turned upside down when we unexpectedly lost my father to suicide, as a result of depression that he battled for years.
My father was my best friend, he was the rock of our family, but he was very sick.
Mental illness is often shrugged off like “just snap out of it”, when really, it’s as serious as cancer. Fast forward 4 years, and I lost my mother to undiagnosed breast cancer, again, unexpectedly.
So I continue to struggle with GRIEF on a daily basis, it’s part of my story, it’s part of my purpose for helping others.
I have learned to PERSEVERE, put one foot in front of the other, appreciate what it right in front of me, and learn to LOVE each day.
I found a passion with health and wellness when I started to put myself first! I now pay it forward and help as many women as I can persevere through their daily struggles and busy lives too!
I decided to become a HEALTH and FITNESS Coach with BODi after the first person noticed the results I was getting from the fitness and nutrition program I was doing.
That person consequently decided to purchase the program themselves as a result of my results! That was exciting and empowering to me, because though I’d never have dreamed in a million years that I would be a part of helping someone in their fitness journey, here I was, helping others out of pure enthusiasm! I found myself telling someone what worked for me, what I’d tried, what I’d heard someone else say worked for them, and giving encouragement. People helping people – from all around the country – working towards one common goal: Reversing The Trends of Obesity: One Relationship at a Time!
I am a stay-at-home mother of 3. When I began I had an 8 year old daughter, a 6 year old daughter and a 6 month old son. They are a bit older now, time flies! I taught Special Education for 9 years before we decided to have children.
I started my journey as a coach / partner years ago as I did at home workouts after I had our 2nd daughter. It was those late night infomercials that really got to me. And, I completed these programs alone, with no support of a coach, just with my husband. I didn’t keep up with the programs and I never even knew to try a nutrition plan or any WELLNESS Shakes.
September 2014 I found my first challenge group. AND I’M SO GLAD THAT I DID!!!! I did the a program, following a portion control meal plan and started drinking a chocolate wellness shake. I was skeptical at first, so the 30 day money back guarantee was the reason I was able to commit. I figured what do I have to lose! THE WEIGHT!!! And I haven’t turned back since. Support, accountability, effective fitness, simple meal plans, recipes, ideas……you name it! And, I started my own fitness journey as a coach because of it! I saw my passion come through during this challenge group and I decided to become a coach because of it. And now I help women all over the world in my own VIRTUAL FIT CLUB! The only person missing in my group, is you!
