I Feel So Much Better
results may vary
I want to take a minute to share the results from my friend Christina. She is a coach on our team and helping people all across the US and Canada with their health and fitness journey. She recently put a big goal out on Facebook that she will be an Elite Coach and be leading an Elite team of coaches next year. She is a great example of setting goals, believing in yourself, and working hard on growing yourself and others. I am super proud of you Christina and excited to watch you grow and make an impact on thousands of others.
“I’ve always been in good shape, and kind of stayed in the same range of weight. I had, prior to my pregnancy, done FocusT25 and lost a bunch of body fat but not any weight. When I got pregnant, I pretty much stopped working out and eating healthy which led to gaining 65 pounds in 6 months. After I had my son I still weighed in at almost 40 pounds over my pre-prenancy weight and I felt awful. I hated the way I looked and I didn’t fit ANY of my clothes.
I was a coach throughout this whole time but I never really worked on my business, I just felt this vague stress in the back of my mind that I wasn’t being a good example of the lifestyle I wanted to lead. So in January 2016 I started a program called The Master’s Hammer & Chisel to lose some serious weight AND start being an example and an inspiration to others of what they could do as well.
Over the past 9 months I’ve been doing several different programs and taking pictures but never really comparing them until I made this transformation photo. I’ve been so caught up in what I’ve been doing that I didn’t even notice how much I’ve changed!
Now I’m halfway to my goal of losing all the baby weight and I feel SO MUCH BETTER! I’m starting to feel like myself again. I wasn’t able to carry my baby and climb the stairs in my house without huffing and puffing and now I’m doing my workouts everyday AND going for a walk most days with no problem. After seeing my own transformation so far, I feel HOPE and CONFIDENCE in what I can do! When I started this process, I wasn’t even sure I could ever get back to where I was and even better but now I know, I’m going to make it happen!
We are not meant to go through life just settling for where we are at. You and I are meant for so much more than this; whether it be in our fitness, our health, our job, our dreams, we were meant for more. THAT is why I will never stop on this journey. There will be setbacks, but I will NEVER quit! Someone out there needs to see my story as inspiration for their own so how can I keep that to myself? I will ALWAYS encourage others because we are so much stronger when we build each other up.”
