What does a 42 year old, 204 lb. inactive mom with 30% body fat, knee problems and ovarian cancer have in common with a 45 year old, 140 lb. active mom with 15% body fat, survivor of ovarian cancer, who is a personal trainer and fitness competitor? Well, in this case they are the same person.
Libby Fletcher Westphal has been fighting a good fight not only with weight loss struggles but also with ovarian cancer and has been WINNING! Libby says… “This ain’t about being “cute” this is about LONGEVITY.” Libby has been fighting ovarian cancer since 2004 and says she is predisposed genetically to high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.
She says, “I have witnessed the early deaths from massive heart attacks at early ages in my family. When I was 16 years old, I lost my own father due to side effects of diabetes — he was 55 and then my mother died from lung/breast cancer days before my 40th birthday — she was a young 61. I had to make a change for myself and to be around for my young SON. This ain’t about being “cute” this is about LONGEVITY. It is about surviving. Slowly introducing exercising, changing my eating habits and setting goals lead to my transformation for which I am eternally thankful!”
