Hi! I’m Bridgette!

Far from the country roads of South Carolina where I grew up being the shy, overweight, unpopular, and quiet girl. Never in a million years would I have dreamed I’d be talking to anyone about health! Trust me! In my mind, that was reserved for the woman with the perfectly cut up abs, a pop’n booty, perky boobs, and coordinated gym outfits that “eat clean and works out religiously” none of which described me!

I am…

a wife.

a mother.

a daughter.

a dreamer.

a believer.

a photographer

an introvert.

an imperfect human.


I believe we all have a light. It took me a long time to figure out my shine (often referred to as “purpose”), but I found it and now determined to share the goodness I’ve found in finally conquering my battle with weight with other people who know the struggle! I kept saying for years, I just need to lose 30 pounds, but I could never get there! Through the LCHF ketogenic diet, I figured it out AND kept my curves “at da same dang time”! Losing 30 pounds in the first 3 months! #grateful.

I lost some pounds and gained a whole lot of confidence! 

With a small seed something great can grow in the right environment with the right elements for that specific seed! Think about that! Seriously! For years I was a dormant seed, had a good environment, but I didn’t have the right elements (knowledge of how to eat, impacts of  stress on my waistline, and the role of my hormones in this whole thing) to grow (lose the weight).

If I can lose the weight, so can you! If you have struggled to lose weight in the past, today’s a new day and you are here for a reason! Pop over on my personal Instagram (@bdoesketo) or the official FatUp IG (@getyafatup) and say hi! I have faith that if I can do it, you can do it too!

Here I am today, From size to 18 to size 12. From over 200 pounds on my 5’2 frame to onederland! I couldn’t have dreamed of this transformation! I lost some pounds and gained a whole lot of confidence! Now I rock heels y’all! You wouldn’t catch me on a good day in some heels and definitely not a dress! I was a jeans and shirts type of chick all day every day!

I was dreaming too small! I thought a 30-pound weight loss would change my life, and it did, but I loss a little over 50 pounds and a lot of inches too! Your weight loss dream may involve more or less pounds than mine, but “your journey is just that, YOURS!” Remember, you can only get different results when you decide to DO something different! Transformation can start with one simple decision to try something you’ve never tried before, because you may just get a different result!
