My Transformation Story

MY NAME IS LYNN COFIELD. I’M A 42 YEAR OLD SINGLE MOM, A NURSE AND A TRANSFORMED WOMAN. THIS IS MY STORY.

It was January 3, 2014. I was sick of myself. So tired of being tired. So tired of feeling hopeless. When I looked in the mirror, I no longer recognized the very overweight, sad face that looked back at me.

I hated me.

I felt like such a failure. Divorced. Stagnant career. A troubled child. A sense of always disappointing the people around me. So, I fed my stress and emotions with food. I was a big snacker! Popcorn, chips, crackers, cookies, and pizza! Lots of drive-thrus with fries, cokes, and other greasy foods. The worse I felt about myself, the more junk I ate! I had horrible gastric reflux and took medication for it daily. I was on antidepressants. I drank a lot of wine. No goals. No thoughts of life direction. I was literally just making it through the day.

But on January 3, 2014, I decided enough was enough. I wanted to live long enough to see my daughter graduate from high school! My Dad died from cancer at 58. In my mind, that meant I only had 17 years left! That life altering day, I read an article about what sugar was doing to our bodies on Facebook, and something clicked. I cleaned out my cabinets and refrigerator of all sugary foods. For accountability, I posted on Facebook that I was changing my nutrition habits. And so it began for me.

Since that day, I have lost 123 pounds. No surgeries, no medication. No special potions. I did it by learning how to eat the right way. I did it by learning how to lift weights. I began lifting weights simply because it burns more fat than just doing cardio at the gym. But what I discovered is every time I lifted that barbell, I became stronger mentally as much as physically! When I began lifting weights, the real transformation began! What started out as simply wanting to lose weight became a much greater journey of transformation and empowerment.

Today, I am a happy, healthy, empowered & completely transformed woman! I eat clean and lift heavy. My experience was so powerful, I developed Barbell Butterfly so women everywhere could learn how to empower themselves towards success too! I am absolutely passionate about sharing my own transformation journey with other women because I want them to know that anything is possible!!

Simply put: it’s the Butterfly Effect. When you change one thing, it changes everything.

I wore this pink mumu ALL of the time hiding myself behind all of the loose hot pink fabric. On the outside I was all pink & happy, but on the inside I had completely given up on ME
