My journey has been far from perfect. I tried just about every diet known and might lose a few pounds but then I gained it back. It has been quite an emotional roller coaster.
My heaviest weight was 235+, why the plus? Because I was so heavy that I stopped weighing myself but I know that I still had to buy clothes in a bigger size. The 235 was the last time I weighed myself. 😦
During the last 7 years I have gone from 235+ to 140. It wasn’t a matter of not knowing that I was eating the wrong food and I knew that I had to workout BUT I just couldn’t keep it off. I was a fat skinny gal. I would lose the weight BUT I did not change my way of thinking. Which of course made it the perfect opportunity for the weight to creep back on and I ALWAYS gained back everything I lost plus more.
And now I am happy to share that things are going in the direction that I want…finally. I have gained control over my emotional eating. I no longer take laxatives or make myself sick to lose weight. I also don’t bike 20 + miles, hours on a bike to lose a few ounces.
What’s changed? The way I think, the amount of healthy food I eat AND what I am doing for workouts. My workouts are no longer than 40 minutes tops. Mostly they are right around 30 minutes.
So if you ask me WHY I became a Beachbody coach this is a prime example. My roller coaster ride is over, my mindset has changed and now I know how to lose the weight, tone up AND keep it off. My life has definitely changed and I love to share my journey with others. Even those photos that used to be hidden away. Now I love to show them because they show how far I have come.
I have an accountability group starting on January 30th and I have a few spots left open. Comment below if you are ready to fill a spot and get your own journey started.
