GirlTrek Health Testimony $ Before/After Pics:

"Long story short, for reasons (initially) out of my control, I ballooned up to 188 pounds. I've been at 135 for 2016 and that's where I'll stay. Never give up. Reach a plateau, switch up your routine. Take a break, when needed, but get back to it. For you, those you love and those who love you. Just DO IT. Life is for the living! Embrace!"

On the eve of Election Day 2016, here's a clip from our beloved Fannie Lou Hamer, one of many phenomenal Black women in history who inspire, inform and fuel the work of #GirlTrek's #BlackGirlJusticeLeague.

We salute you #FannieLouHamer.
