Our Story

Kim Miller and Shannon Dougherty, the Fit Mom Diet duo, their stories started with one small step after having children. As new moms they felt overwhelmed with the responsibilities of raising children and taking care of themselves. The journey to try and get healthy was not an easy one but by surrounding themselves with a support system and developing a healthy living plan they each managed to lose over 50 lbs., become active and commit their lives to careers in the health and fitness industry. Although Kim and Shannon had not met yet, their lives were remarkably similar. Both struggled to find balance and happiness. As they individually found strategies to achieve their goals they wanted to give back and help others feel beautiful, empowered, strong and healthy.

Upon entering the health and fitness industry as fitness models, writers and healthy living advocates, they both knew from day one that their goal was to empower women, to promote a positive body image, and to teach others how to live a healthy lifestyle through clean eating and fitness. Most importantly, the goal was always this, TO CHANGE lives, one person at a time.

Fit Mom Diet is a community designed to help educate, support and inspire moms to make positive changes in their life.

Moms have a great responsibility and need to take care of themselves in order to take better take care of those they love.

At the core, Kim and Shannon believe that attitude determines your destiny, that beauty emulates from within and that every women, with the right tools, resources and support, has the ability to achieve the body they want and the balance they desire. Being a mom is the hardest job you’ll ever love. You matter, so take care of you!

Kim and Shannon met casually at a photo shoot in the summer of 2011 and became fast friends. Their shared interests of living an active lifestyle, healthy eating and being real and genuine became the basis of their relationships and they served as support for each other as they each developed their brand in the industry. After some time working individually on many similar ventures, they made the decision to join together in an effort to truly help women and launched Fit Mom Diet.
