My friends...I want to share with you a VERY important transformation. What Cheryl has to say sums up transformation in a very special way. It's never REALLY just about losing weight. It's about finding yourself! Take a moment to read about her very special journey!
💗2020 was many things to many people. For me it was extremely challenging. I cannot begin to explain the level of stress I had to deal with as a nurse. As we enter the new year I am optimistic that life will again return to some sort of normal that we all know. I don’t know what that looks like yet, but I am ready for it.
Through Anneliese’s program one thing that I have learned that is invaluable is the knowledge that every day is a new day. There are two directions, moving towards your goals and moving away from your goals. Some days are big steps and some days are little steps. I was always an all or nothing girl. If I ate horrible one day, well that ruined tomorrow and the whole week. One week turned into the next, etc. I’m not that person anymore. I can offer myself grace and keep moving forward.
Throughout my experience, I have learned what works for me, and what doesn’t. For example, I know that I cannot be vegan. I can’t build muscle on a vegan diet. I also know how foods affect me. One of the biggest wins is actually for my daughter. She has severe eczema and we have determined it is likely a food allergy/intolerance. I now have the skills to effectively do an elimination diet on her.... Soon we will be going to an allergy doctor, and after that we will do a full elimination diet. Thanks to Anneliese, I know I can do it with ease!
During my time with Anneliese, I ran a Spartan Trifecta. Which includes a half-marathon. I was able to run 5 miles without stopping. I have learned how important it is to take care of me, because no one else will. I have become more confident in myself. I feel confident I would not have achieved any of these things without help from Anneliese.
Last but not least, I was able to help people achieve THEIR goals. That was one of the best parts!!
The last year has taken its toll on me, but it has not won. I am stronger than a worldwide pandemic, and I will come out the other side better.
I would never be able to express the truth of this experience myself had I not witnessed it. Cheryl is TRULY a warrior in every sense of the word. I couldn't be prouder to be a part of her experience!! Thanks for sharing Cheryl!! 🥰
