Elizabeth is a college nursing student living in Ohio with her own at-home baking business. She has struggled with anxiety for a long time. She always put a lot of pressure on herself to be perfect - the perfect student, athlete, friend, daughter, girlfriend, etc.
She hit a really hard time in her life during junior year of highschool and finally decided she needed to see the doctor about her anxiety. It was a hard thing for her to admit. Her family and boyfriend were truly amazing and encouraging. She let anxiety control her whole life. It got to the point that it caused her physical pain due to having "heart attack" like chest pains during anxiety attacks. She already struggled with a learning disability that she worked so hard to overcome. She thought her anxiety was another obstacle for her being not good enough.
She started taking medication for anxiety and things got better for a while, but then things started to take a turn for the worst. She ended up having to switch anxiety medication because she was tired all the time and gained lots of weight. After graduating high school she hit a weight she was not proud of. This brought her down to a low dark place. She was not proud of who she saw in the mirror and knew she needed to change mentality and physically. She found Christa on PopSugar and after doing the workouts for a few weeks decided to join B&B. Her goal was to be back to the weight that she was in high school by vacation.
"Vacation came and went and I didn't meet my goal, but what I did find - I was a HAPPIER me. I have lost weight and toned my body. After only 4 months on my journey, I have grown strong mentally and physically. I cannot wait to see how I continue to grow. I am proud to say that anxiety is a part of who I am but it does not define me. I am excited to continue my fitness journey with such an amazing and supportive group!" ~ Elizabeth Sutton
