About Alecia Barnes

Big Loser of over 130+ pounds. Mother. Optimist. Old Soul. Champion of the Underdog. Passionate God Chaser. Restored. Greetings! I am an avid SEO geek and a passionate advocate and promoter of the Body by Vi 90 day challenge . I have lost over 100+ pounds with the 90 day challenge over the course of a year, but the challenge has changed me in so many ways unrelated to losing the weight. I am passionate about internet marketing, and I'm passionate about the benefits of getting healthy, through lifestyle change. As a community leader of the Body by Vi challenge, I'm fortunate and blessed to speak with several people a day who are looking for a healthy solution to the issues they face due to obesity and poor eating habits. I'm a self-confessed former junk food and fast food-aholic, who learned a healthier way to eat, and a healthier way to live. I'm blessed to be able to share the knowledge I've learned with others who have struggled with weight the way that I did. I'm looking forward to connecting with you. Visit My Google+ Profile
