Hello, My name is Sharon Moore and I live in Florida. Initially, I was born and raised in Washington State. Happily married to my another half, Keenan Moore. I also have a precious son and a grandson and other one is on its way. I love helping people and making them feel good about themselves. My hobbies are traveling, shopping, making video & photos, doing a home renovation project, weightlifting and meeting new people.
A few years ago, after I hit the big 40, I bought myself a weight scale, and I couldn’t believe my eyes: 160 pounds! I gained 40 pounds in less than a year. During my late 30’s, after I got a severe injury at work, I could not continue my career as a nursing assistant. That was when my life went downhill. I had gone through many surgeries and doctor visits. I also took many medications and attended therapies for so many years.
I saw what was wrong and it isn’t that hard to fix the problem. So, I started to research about healthy life. I read everything I could about how to live healthily. I also thought hard about why people like myself aren’t motivated enough to become and stay healthy.
To keep up with my motivation, I realized that I need to create the goals to achieve I listed above. For one, instead of going to the parties, I go to the gym. I stopped eating fast food and going out to the restaurants; I cooked home meals instead. I quitted smoking cold turkey, and I didn’t use nicotine gum or any assistance to stop smoking. With strong will-power, I overcame the addiction. I’m proud to say I have been smoke-free since 2012.
Precisely a week after first going over my life setting up goals, I felt motivated. For the first time in my life, I sat down and made a long grocery list. I went out and bought more food than I’d ever bought before. Then on that following Monday, I cooked meals for a whole week for the first time. Amazingly, I have not stopped since then. I’ve been doing that for over 8 years now.
The best thing about changing my lifestyle is that I’m spending a lot more on groceries, and a lot less in restaurants. Not only that I am saving money and getting healthier and fitter, I feel very productive. The motivation I have set for myself has led me to establish DeaFIT LLC as a fitness, nutrition consultant, inspire and motivational speaker for the deaf community.
