AB Transformations Inc - About Angelique Beauregard
I’m a down-to-earth, tell-it-like-it-is, go-to gal, who happens to own a school bus company. Go figure!
I'm also a reawakened midlife woman who finally ended her lifelong struggle with obesity in her first year of menopause.
This is my story.
I grew up in the boonies far away from my friends. My mother didn’t get her driver’s license until I was seven years old, so play dates were few and far between. Most days after school, I sat alone in front of the television with a bag of chocolate bars and a pail (yes, a pail) of chips.
I realize now that loneliness and isolation contributed to my problems with eating at a very young age.
I’ve attempted to reach goal weight at least sixteen times over the course of my life. Sixteen times! At least! My first attempt, at age eleven, was when my mother and I joined TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly). After every weekly meeting, we would go home and have our “cheat night” and I would down a bag of chocolate fudge cookies and two glasses of milk. The two times I joined Weight Watchers, I did the exact same thing.
I was at my heaviest after the birth of my first daughter eighteen years ago—I ballooned up to 271 pounds.
Needless to say, I was uncomfortable in my skin. I felt like a failure, obsessing over a body I hated.
I couldn’t wear the clothing I wanted to, always covering up in long sweaters, and I never wanted people to hug me because I was afraid they would feel the fat bulging out the top of my jeans.
I always had this goal of how many pounds I want to lose by my birthday, etc. and year after year I would never succeed. So many times I was within five pounds of goal weight and gained it all back.
I always felt leaner than I was, so was always disappointed when I looked in the mirror.
For decades I would rush past mirrors or plate glass windows. I didn't want to look. When I did allow myself to look, it was as if my eyes were broken.
It was not that long ago that anything that covered the rolls and was clean was good enough.
All that changed in September of 2015 when I was called to do something different. Call it a midlife crisis. Call it an awakening. I had the opportunity to enroll in a program to become a transformational nutrition coach. Was it possible my suffering could help others? Or was it all for nothing? I would soon find out.
Determined to have my own transformation so I could be a credible coach, I embarked on a journey of health and wellness. There were quite a few bumps in the road, but...
I lost 50 pounds and got BELOW my goal weight for the first time in my adult life.
I finally figured out what I really WANTED my life to look like, focusing on WHY I wanted to lose weight in the first place. The answers surprised me...
Today I look forward to shopping in regular stores. I buy cute clothes (including bathing suits). No more muffin top. I can cross my legs. My knees don't hurt. Life is so much more meaningful now that I can move freely.
I'm so grateful that I'm not afraid of the mirror anymore.
Now that my kids are older, I have so much more time for myself. I have a wonderful new career, a supportive husband, and am truly grateful for the guidance I've gotten from my own coaches. I have incredible self-confidence and my self-esteem is through the roof.
