Last week I signed up for a fitness class sponsored by my weight loss surgery center. I had no idea that the trainer was the now famous Amy Barnes.
We were a few minutes into our training session when Amy began to tell us her amazing story.
“I felt like food was the only thing in my life that I could control,” said 35-year-old Amy Barnes, who once weighed 490 pounds. “Looking back now, I realize that food controlled me … Food was my addiction.” – Today Show
Amy Barnes is an absolutely amazing person. We had an awesome workout. I can’t wait to hit the gym again. Simply being in the presence of Amy gives me the motivation and inspiration not only to continue on my journey but to strive harder.
