I Feel So Much Better
Christina Stentzel

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-feel-so-much-better

“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.”
