Hello Foster’s, today I’m back with another Guest Feature. Janiela Johnson is back on my blog for the fourth time! Last time she was in here she was talking about her weight loss journey, it was half a year. On April first it was her One Year Fitness Journey Anniversary. Make sure you watch the video above to see some things I didn’t ask her in the the questions below.
One thing I can say about Janiela is that she takes my saying and brings it to light ” This is not just my journey this is our journey.” By being a guest on this blog and giving us personal insight on her weightloss journey is amazing. It’s so amazing to see how close we’ve become because of this blogging experience and having her on my platform, but she’s also become a friend. She’s my best friend from afar. She makes my blog something I’m proud of. She’s goal oriented, motivation and everything in between. We actually have a lot in common! I want to give a special shout out to her cousin Morgan Turner for helping Janiela in this journey. We all need positivity when going in a personal journey. It’s nice for her to have a mentor especially a family memenee to be that motivation and to keep you going, so shout out to her.
