When you start Weight Watcher’s at 11 years old, you know you are destined to have weight issues for the rest of your life. I blamed my Mom for being overweight, I blamed my genetics, I blamed out on my unpredictable asthma. I was looking for someone to say “it’s OK that you’re overweight because you can’t do anything about it”.
I had settled into an uncomfortable 167 lbs. at 5’5″ tall. I’ve always been very proportioned so when I told people that I weighed that much, they were extremely surprised. I told everyone I wanted to lose 42 lbs. which at that point seemed impossible. I got “You’re crazy” looks and, “you look great, why so much?” The answer: I didn’t feel comfortable at that weight.
I was sluggish.
I had no energy.
I was having stomach problems on a daily basis.
I was outgrowing my clothes on a monthly basis and didn’t feel like it was going to stop.
I didn’t have the will power to control my portions. I never ate badly; I just ate a lot of it. I’’ve always been the salad eating type. I actually hate hamburgers. I felt hopeless because to me, I was eating right.
Well, I changed all that. I came to Innovative Results in January of 2008 starting training 3 days a week. I remember having such a hard time getting through the workouts, but as the pounds came off, I realized it was getting easier. Along with my workouts, eating controlled proportioned meals and healthy snacks, I’ve been able to lose 30lbs. and 22 inches off my chest, waist and hips.
I haven’t had any stomach problems since I’ve changed my diet and I haven’t had any unpredictable asthma attacks.
I fit into clothes that I wore 10 years ago and most importantly my expensive jeans again.
I still have about 12 lbs. that I want to lose, but I know it will come off gradually. Innovative Results is great to train with because you don’t get burned out. Every workout is challenging so your body doesn’t plateau. I was worried about building too much muscle, but I haven’t.
I am more confident, happy, energetic and healthier than I ever thought possible.
This has been a complete lifestyle change for me and I can’t thank my Innovative Results personal trainer enough for helping me make it happen.
