She became a stay at home mom and was struggling with how things were going for her. After all this, she finally decided to bring change in her life.

Nicole’s husband, Charlie, supported her in this struggle, but her friends were rude to her during and after her weight loss success.

According to Nicole, “They were not supportive at all. They would criticize everything about me and put me down not realizing their jokes hurt. They’d judge or joke about what I was wearing and tell me I wasn’t perfect. They were very negative.”
