The woman was in despair because she weighed 280 pounds. In addition to physical inconveniences, there were also a lot of psychological ones, since Kimmy couldn’t look at herself in the mirror – she was ashamed of her body.

Her husband supported her as much as he could and suggested taking up pole dancing -- that turned out to be Kimmy’s dream. However, her insecurity and fear of being laughed at during the class stopped her from starting dancing.

This is what Kimmy said to herself after finally enrolling in the class, as the mother of two boys:

I should be mentally and physically healthy for myself and my children.

When the first photos appeared in social networks, she received a lot of hurtful comments. Over time, she learned to ignore them.

Now, she openly shows of her success. Fortunately, the family installed a dance pole at home, and she can practice at any time. Even her youngest son wanted to learn some dance movements, after seeing how easily his mom performs.
