Testimonial Tuesday!


One of my FAVORITE things to share is CLIENT transformations! This woman here is TRULY a force! She's Fearless, Original, Resilient, Confident and most of all EMPOWERED! That's WHAT FORCE stands for! Here's her story:

#scalewin At the end of my 12 weeks, I'm down 36-38 lbs. I've learned how I fluctuate 1-2 lbs in the same range and then BAM - I will drop 2-3 lbs and the fluctuate within a new range for a while. By sticking to this program longer than two weeks (like every other diet I've tried), I've been able to learn how my body reacts to losing weight. So, if the scale is not going down every day, I don't despair.
#nonscalewin SO MANY!
I have so much energy. And, everything is easier (and better) without my big belly in the way. Including sex 📷:)
My husband doesn't want me to lose any more weight. He thinks I'm absolutely perfect the way that I am now.
My body feels so great that I'm past the yikes, this eating less really makes me suffer. Eating this way makes me feel good because everything that I'm eating is not making me or my body suffer.
I had my heath screening the other day and my blood pressure is back to normal (with meds). Last year, with meds, it was really high, but this year I'm doing much better. Also, I really loved the scale at the health screening. It was 8 lbs different than my scale at home.
Tip: Don't get your hair cut when your weight loss is about to be visible because everyone will just think that your hair cut makes you look thin and wonder why you didn't change it years ago!
MOST OF ALL - I have hope! What a gift. Truly, I thought it was my destiny to be pinned into the life of an overweight person - always trying to find the biggest life jacket when rafting. Being the one that my family has to wait for on a hike. THANK YOU ANNELIESE.
What's next for me: I look forward to winter hikes and maybe in the next few months I'll look at getting a new, younger dog. My Elmer D. is 12 and I had to put my hiking partner, Finley (age 7 or 8) down a couple of weeks ago unexpectedly. I miss having a buddy who can hang with me. I can't get more than 2 miles out of Elmer D. Dog.
I want to continue to shave time off my walking and hiking miles. And, will work out 6 days a week.
I always have classic country skied. This winter I want to take on learning to skate ski - I've always wanted to and now I think I'm physically capable of taking it on.
I really enjoy clean eating and will continue to make that a part of my life. I'd like to lose another 15 pounds by February 28 when my hubby and I head to the Dominican Republic for The Avett Brothers At The Beach.
I haven't missed caffeine at all. So, I'll stick with my decaffeinated black teas. I'll also stick with my 120 oz of water a day.
I also will be super diligent about the cheat day. Now that I work at a brewery and get free beer - I will limit myself to two days a week having a couple beers and no more days than that. I'd like to say one day, but I'm being honest so two it is and on those days I will stay in my calorie range so I'm going to have to really want that beer more than food 📷:) And, that sometimes is not worth it!
It's hard to believe that I'm the same gal who three months ago was crying on the phone with Anneliese pleading that she'd take me on as a client. Watch out world! Heidi's back.

It's TRX Tuesday. Boy do I have a treat in store for you! Trading spaces couldn't be MORE fun than this! See you soon Fuel Fitness 12:10 - 12:50
