From a size 24 to 6 and back again! LeeAnn Sims has been on THAT ride. She's been intimate with the varied perspectives and emotions related to weight loss and "yo-yo" diets. She's glowed with the excitement that comes with exchanging a dress for the next size down. She's experienced the embarrassment of having to exit a roller coaster after the attendant couldn't buckle her into the seat. How's that for confidence? What she has learned along this journey has become her mission's core message: Insecurities don't magically disappear with the pounds on the scale.
After losing at WEIGHT loss–(losing and regaining 144lbs more than 10 yrs ago) LeeAnn has been on a WINNING streak–recently shedding 180lbs naturally by building the proper foundation of confidence. She's located the fountain of true confidence and has authored a book, navigating other women to that destination. The Weight Loss DIVA: Discover the Discipline, Inspiration, Victory & Acceptance Within You! gives "real talk" insight to finding and embracing authentic confidence.
LeeAnn is the founder of Fit & Fab Lifestyle: an accountability community, where women can celebrate where they are while pursuing the best version of themselves; visionary and host of The Fit & Fab Weekend: an outlet for women looking for practical information and encouragement on their wellness journey; creator of The Confidence Accelerator, and Club Expand, coaching women to face and erase barriers to their confidence.
This size-inclusive wellness advocate has been featured in SHAPE, Essence Magazine, various local media publications and appeared on The Today Show. Glowing with and flowing in confidence, LeeAnn has represented brands like Lane Bryant, The Loft and Athleta. She is a sought-after motivational speaker, philanthropist and resides in Maryland with her husband, Mike, who she affectionately and publicly calls her "king."
