Fitness hasn't always been a part of Jeraldine's life. Jeraldine grew up being what most people would consider as thick. Because of her genetics, she always had thicker legs and hips than most girls. Because of this, she started struggling with body image and self esteem issues from a very young age. Her lower body made her feel very insecure about herself and the social pressure to be thin eventually drove her to do everything she could to get skinny. Jeraldine spent several years running every morning and severely under eating. And although she did manage to lose weight, she did so in a very unhealthy and unsustainable way and instead of feeling better about herself, she only became more obsessed with watching the scale.
As years went by, Jeraldine’s fitness goals started to change. She started to understand that beauty does not come from what the scale says. She began focusing on becoming a healthier and stronger person. She understood that she could not change her genetics and slowly learned to embrace her naturally thick and curvy body.
Today, Jeraldine spends her days helping other women realize what took her so many years to realize on her own. She teaches women to love themselves and to love their bodies. She motivates them to make good and positive choices to become healthier individuals.
