50 Lbs Down!!!!

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

So about 2 weeks ago i hit that wonderful landmark of 50 pounds down. I am still mentally adjusting. This is an enormous achievement that i didn't used to think I could achieve. I would go on diets all the time without ever believing I would lose much. This time I have gone down 6 dress sizes, a snug size 24 to wearing size 18, some of which are lose.

I have had 3 sinus infections, 1 stomach flu, my son had 3 ear infections, and my hubby has been just as sick and a lot of stress with going back to work and being sick so much and it interfered with having a workout regimen. There have definitely been quite a few challenges.

So what has been different for me this time? I have a very specific goal that is ambitious but still attainable and I have a very physical motivation, I had preecclampsia with my first pregnancy and I really want my body to be in a better place before conceiving.

I am thinking of becoming a Beachbody Coach. I really like Shakeology and I have been using it for the past few months and I really LOVE their programs. I am in the last week of Focus T25 Beta Cycle.

In an upcoming post I want to write a love letter to my body.

I hope everyone is doing well with their goals!

    I actually just quite being a beachbody coach a month ago. I got hooked on their programs and shakeology (I've been using their programs for over 10 years now - I love them!) and decided to sign up as a coach for the discounts and figured I would eventually segue way into an active coach with people under me. But I realized that that goal was so far off that I was spending way more money on monthly fees to be a coach than I was saving on my purchases. If you're looking for a coach I would recommend mine, she's great at training coaches and is the head of one of the top teams in Canada (even though I'm from the U.S. - the differing country thing didn't matter) and in the downline of THE top team in Canada. E-mail me if you're interested in her information, she's always looking for new coaches and very accessible.

    I'm super in awe of your weight loss! The amount of hard work and dedication that it took really highlights what a strong person you are! You're an inspiration!

    Way to go. IT feels so good doesn't it!
    Keep up the great work and remember that living healthy is a life time commitment but so rewarding and achievable with the disciplinary skills you have developed.
    All the best in maintaining.
