Welcome to Recovering Carbie…the story of my journey to find a better me! My name is Mandi. I’m a 38 year old, insanely busy working Mom of 3. Throughout my entire life I have struggled with weight/body issues. In July of 2016, I set out to change all that. I embarked on a lifestyle change to prove to myself that a busy Mom with major food issues could become healthy. It hasn’t always been easy, but to date I’ve lost over 100 pounds and gained my life back.  Here you will find the story of my journey, inspiration to start your own journey, ideas to keep you going, and my trials and errors.
