welcome plaquge

3 John 1-2

2 Dear friend, I pray that you are doing well in every way. I pray that your body is strong and well even as your soul is.

Welcome to Fit and Finally Free! I’m Almetria – an entrepreneur, blogger, lifestyle and wellness coach, healthy recipe developer, and avid runner. I am on a mission to live a fit and free life while helping others achieve their lifestyle and wellness goals.

Fit and Finally Free is a lifestyle and weight loss management company and blog dedicated to help, inspire, and encourage people the freedom to work, play and live well through my posts, health and fitness tips, creating healthy recipes, discovering fantastic product and food finds, learning how to eat and live healthy, spiritual enlightenment, and conquering the highs and lows of this beautiful chaotic life while on the road to self discovery.


I’ve spent most of my life yo-yo dieting, doing quick fix diets, and eating food I didn’t like during the process. Food and other vices can sometimes be a coping mechanism for underlying issues that go unresolved. Temporary fixes never create permanent solutions. It only gives us false hope. I learned the hard way that changing my basic eating habits along with exercise, work and time management, and becoming more socially and self aware was the only way to sustain and maintain a healthy weight loss, create balance, and build a strong mind, body and soul.

I want to teach you how to lead a healthy, well balanced life and becoming the person you’ve always wanted to be by the renewing of your mind and loving yourself from the inside out.

Feel free to scroll through our website for inspiration, healthy recipes, nutrition/fitness tips, work/life balance tips and services that will enable you in living your best life now!

    You have a miraculous story and I am motivated to keep at trying to get healthier. I am pre-diabetic and scared to death. My father had type 2 diabetes and I watched him suffer for many years and I do not want to go down that road. You have inspired me to exercise more, make better food choices and to be mindful that my body is Gods temple which needs to be taken care of.

    Thank you,

  29. Vanessa Williams says:

    Hi Almetria, your story is one of true courage (as well as encouragement) and acknowledging the devine we all possess and how we need to honour ourselves and our bodies.

    I am exactly where you were in 2010, however without the D diagnosis but it is an hereditary trait in my family. I am going through the first stage of the cleansing and purging stage. I’m ridding myself of relationships and beliefs that no longer serve me.

    So thank you so much for sharing your story, it is a glimpse at the journey that awaits me! Xxx

  30. EMC says:

    Hi Almetria,
    Your story on Yahoo! Wins led me here, and truthfully, I wasn’t expecting the depth and quality of information and inspiration that I found. You are truly a positive on my own journey. Thank you.

    • Thanks for reaching out to me and for your kind words. The intent of which I set out to do my blog was to be informative, transparent, to inspire and to uplift not only about weight loss but life in general. I hope you will continue to follow my blog and be able to gleam something from my posts. Live and Be Well!

  31. ruth spraggins says:

  32. Hello Almetria,

    Read your story on Yahoo and I was really motivated and inspired. I’ve been struggling with my weight since birth and now that I am married, TTC and also approaching 40…I am determined more than ever to live a healthy lifestyle. I will definitely follow your health and weight loss tips. Thank you for being an inspiration. God Bless.

    • Nguper, thanks for reaching out to me and for your kind words. You can achieve anything you set your mind to doing with the right mindset and if your heart and desire is truly in it. I wish you much success on your road to fit by 40 and I look forward in you sharing your progress with me. Live and Be Well!

  35. Claudia Hester says:

    Hi Almetria
    My best friend forwarded your story to me.
    Thank you for sharing your story, recently on Wednesday March 3, 2016 I went to the Drs. office for a f/u visit on labs and was diagnosed w/hypertension and given an RX. Needless to say I was devastated. I bought the meds and a blood pressure monitor and have been monitoring my blood pressure regularly. I have so many questions, but most of all I want know how do I get off the meds. There’s been a misconception that once you’re on blood pressure meds you have to take them for the duration of life. I’d like to some direction. Claudia

  36. Deanna says:

    Hello Almetria,
    I am very happy for you and your success. I’m on a lifestyle changing mission as well and l’ve lost 15 pounds so far. I was empowered reading about your journey and thanks for all of your suggestions.


  37. Hey Deanna! Congrats on your weight loss. Losing 15 pounds is a huge accomplishment. Way to go! Looks like you’re well on your way into your journey and I’m looking forward in sharing with you and you sharing with me your successes and setbacks along the way. We’re both sure to have them, but as long as we are both moving forward, there’s no stopping us!

    Live and Be Well,
