Andrea's before pic
Meet Andrea Avendano. A daughter, sister, mother and missionary. These are all roles Andrea plays daily, whole heartedly. She's a voice for countless women being sex-trafficked around the world. She's on a mission not only to create awareness on the topic but also to develop change! That being said, how many of us know that when you have all of this going on, the person that tends to get neglected the most is yourself?
In September of 2016 after years of excuses, procrastination, and failed attempts at losing weight, Andrea decided she was tired of the temporary fixes and needed a lifestyle change. She was going to invest in her physical fitness and not in pharmaceutical companies. Andrea was ready to live a healthier lifestyle and was going to make it a priority. She joined Orangetheory Fitness and signed up for a weight loss challenge. Joining the challenge gave her added motivation, taught her how to balance exercise and nutrition, and the coaches served as accountability partners.
Fast forward 5 months, Andrea's lost 27 pounds of fat while gaining solid muscle on her legs, glutes, and arms. Her pant size went from a 14/12 to an 8/10. Her cholesterol dropped by 50 points without taking cholesterol meds. She has more energy, is more confident, and feels happier! Andrea chose to celebrate her victory by chopping off her hair to a pixie cut! :) I hope Andrea's story inspires you to focus on your health and overall well being.

~ 1 Corinthians 6:19-20... Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.
