Kendra Scribner struggled with weight issues before losing 140 pounds — and having people continually guess how she lost it.
She has been maintaining that weight loss since 2012 through diet and exercise. It wasn’t easy.
“I struggled with it like everyone else,” she said.
Being a stay-at-home mom has inspired her to get creative in the kitchen to help others through those same struggles. She has developed a new business — Sweet Fit Desserts.
“I specialize in gluten-free, low sugar and high protein gourmet clean cheats,” she said. “It’s learning how to eat clean, yet still having sweets that has helped me maintain my weight loss.”
@:Scribner also teaches yoga and PiYo, a pilates and yoga inspired workout, at the YMCA. Members there helped give her an idea of what recipes work.
Part of the reason she started the business is to help educate people.
“Once people learn more about the food they eat, then they are able to make better decisions for themselves and for their family,” she said.
She developed a passion for baking and researching different recipes and different ways of cooking sweet treats in a healthy manner.
“It’s been a lot of trial and error,” she said.
Her creations appeal to a lot of groups — diabetics, people with celiac disease and others.
Scribner has documented her weightloss journey on her Facebook page — https://www.facebook.com/kendrajourney2fitness.
“There’s no more restriction on enjoying sweets,” she said.
