Meet Florida (USA) native, mother, and elementary teacher Aisha Adams. I met this vibrant, outgoing, outspoken beauty in 2011 when we both were living in the Middle East as educators. Aisha was my neighbor in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in the rural Western region of the country known as Madinat Zayed, Al Gharbia.
It was in Abu Dhabi that Aisha began her journey to a healthier lifestyle and mental change. She references me with getting her started to her health-wellness-lifestyle change, but I cannot take the credit. She did the work all her own. She’s still on her journey and
in this podcast she discusses the triumphs, setbacks, enlightenment, and acceptance of what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle.
Aisha has lost 100 lbs since 2011! Her health is better and her outlook on life is much more positive. Aisha has even been motivated to one day become a motivational speaker and a registered nurse to help other people struggling with their weight.
Listen to Aisha’s podcast on how she had to change her mind-set, habits and how getting healthier even meant her losing some friends.
I want to say thank you again to Aisha Adams, who I affectionately refer to as “Neighbor”. Though we were next door neighbors 4 years ago while living in the Middle East, she will always be my "spirit neighbor" and friend. Aisha looked out for me many times when I was sick and all alone. I’m so very proud of her journey and am humbled that she shared her story with Health, Wellness, Lifestyle TV.
