My gym helped me lose hundreds of pounds — and not an ounce of it was off my body. – by Kaitlyn Lesnikoski

Skipping all the details… my mid-20’s we’re a miserable mess. I had to move across the country and restart my life — I entered grad school and found my dream job, but I lost my entire social circle and had no idea how to navigate healthy relationships.
