Going into immediate survival mode, her life as a new mother changed in an terror-filled flash when Samantha, her 18-month-old daughter, almost died before finally being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. As she openly talks about on the show, she became desperate, angry, and physically unhealthy as she did everything she could to raise an insulin dependent child. It took 13 years for today's guest to realize that, while busy saving her daughter, she forgot to save herself.
Inspirational speaker, strong mom, and author of the upcoming book, "Saving Her, Saving Me", Bonita Lehmann, joins us on the show to share how she took control of her life back, stayed accountable, and got her game on.

Bonita's turning point
After ignoring years of signs and signals that were trying to get her attention, she awoke early one morning with the imaginary realness of being choked into submission. She then heard (maybe felt) an inner voice assuring her that today was the day for a change in plans.
One of the best parts of her entire journey
Her daughters grew to respect her and became her biggest fans and cheerleaders.
