Our Mama Stories - Julie J.

You do not have to be a part of FIT4MOM Roswell/Alpharetta long to realize how much of a community you have joined. This next mama joined our community in June of this year and is already feeling the FIT4MOM vibes. Meet Julie.

Hi there! I am Julie Jahnke, but my favorite name to go by is Mama. I am a very proud boy mom! Jude is my adventurous and loving 3-year-old, and Jameson is my happy and laid back 6-month-old.

Before I was introduced to Fit4Mom, I was doing the best I could to make some time for me. I always used my kid(s) as an excuse as to why I was not regularly working out. Prior to having kids, I was a special education teacher, so I was used to being on my feet all day long. I also was a competitive horseback rider. Then motherhood happened…I lost myself a little bit in my children. I wouldn’t trade it for the world though. Instead of going and working on myself, I (like every other mom) put my kids desires before my needs. This all changed this past summer though.

I joined Fit4Mom at the beginning of the summer a few months after I had Jameson. I had an “Ah Ha” moment where I realized I truly wasn’t comfortable in my own skin. I was not in shape and I had some weight that needed to be out of my life for good. So, that is where my journey began. I will not say I started dieting because I am not dieting. I am changing my lifestyle. So, I first started changing my eating habits. A few weeks after I committed to that change, a friend invited me to the preview class this summer. I was totally intimidated to go, if I am completely honest. However, I made a commitment to myself and to my children to lead a healthier lifestyle, so I forced myself to step outside my comfort zone. I went to that preview class and I felt amazing. Without even talking to my husband, I signed up immediately. It is a decision I am so thankful I made.

In the months since I have joined Fit4Mom, I have lost 27 pounds (and counting). I have pushed myself physically, I have gained strength, I have gained so much more confidence, and most importantly I have shown my children the importance of taking care of your body. I am so happy that I have joined this community for myself and for my kids. I truly appreciate everyone’s warm smiles, encouragement, and love they share for everyone’s kids. Fit4Mom is an amazing tribe to be a part of!
