Who am I? Anna Gray, a 42 year old Registered Nurse, wife and mother of 2. I’m blessed with 2 beautiful daughters, 11 and 9 that my husband and I adopted from China when they were infants.
I have always struggled with my weight my whole life, hit rock bottom after years of infertility treatment, reaching 205 lbs. I found a “diet” and lost 70 lbs! Then life happened.
I climbed the Healthcare corporate ladder for 15 years working in the Operating Room, then into Clinical Management, becoming a Director of a Surgery Center. Currently working as a Clinical Systems Analyst.
This pursuit of career Success led me to an hour and a half daily commute, returning home at the kids bedtime and missing their afterschool activities regularly.
I gained 30 of the 70lbs I had lost amd woke up one day tired of the excuse that I was too busy to workout and be healthy. I found a solution from an in-home fitness program called P90x. Completing the 90 day program, including following the nutrition plan I dropped from a size 10 to a size 4 and lost 12 inches.
Feeling better than I did when I was in high school I chose to pay forward the free coaching that I received during the program and continue the healthy lifestyle by becoming a Team Beachbody Coach.
Since making that decision in August 2009, I have not only maintained my size and healthy lifestyle. I walked away from my Registered Nurse Management Career in 2013 to work from home as a Full Time Coach. A dream I set for myself years ago and made happen! I built my own business part-time while working a very stressful Full Time career. I am proof that when you put your mind to something you succeed no matter how long it takes you. I am blessed every day surrounding myself with others who want to be the best versions of themselves.
I look forward to being home with my kids and husband in the future and will not missing any more activities because of this opportunity I have been given.
