Transformation Tuesday this week comes from Michaelene T, she is a mother of 2 and was ready to give up on her health and fitness. Michaelene had tried countless diet and weight loss plans and felt like nothing was working when it came to long lasting results. She would yo-yo back and forth with her weight and get discouraged when she couldn’t find the right solution. Was it the plan? Was it her? She questioned what she had been doing wrong. Michaelene had even tried the 21 Day Fix prior to my meeting her. She saw some results, but not the ones she had hoped for and she was discouraged. I remember her posting something to her Facebook about giving up. She was ready to throw in the towel and consider her journey hopeless! I emailed her and urged her to join my accountability group. I explained to her that she would find the support and motivation that she needed. I assured her that there were other people feeling the same way that she did and with the right combination of hard work, support, and accountability that she too could reach her goals. I was not trying to “sell” her or “convince” her, I genuinely wanted to help her and I knew that the tools the group provided her would help her to reach her goals. After a lot of arm twisting I FINALLY got her to agree!!
In the group she found help with meal planning and prepping, sample grocery lists, recipe swapping, motivation, support, and most of all ACCOUNTABILITY. Believe me, it is EASY to cheat or quit when no one is watching; when no one cares. Not this time though, not for Michaelene! She pushed past her excuses. We worked through the tough times together and she has seen some AMAZING results! Results that she herself had never thought possible. I remember her thanking me for believing in her. Sometimes that is all that we need, is someone to believe in us.
She lost a total of 18lbs and 17 inches with 2 rounds of the 21 Day Fix! That is incredible! More importantly though, she is feeling good and she is so confident now! The weight lost improved her overall health, but the mindset she is in is far beyond and number on the scale. I am so very proud that she was able to dig deep and be stronger than her excuses.
“The 21 day fix not only changed my life but my family’s as well. I had high Cholesterol, low vitamin D, I was fatigued and considered Obese at 5’4 180 lbs. After 1 round my cholesterol dropped, my vitamin D raised and best of all I was losing weight! Not just lbs but inches too! I see a change in my family also, they are choosing fruits and veggies over sweets and chips and as a mother of 2 young impressionable girls I know I made a great decision because they are seeing me focusing on a healthy lifestyle and doing it too.” ~Michaelene T
The best part about this whole journey is that Michaelene sees the benefits of a support system and believes 100% in this program and what it has done for her that she herself decided to become a Coach!! She is now going to pay it forward and help others to reach their health and fitness goals. She is determined not only to live a healthy lifestyle, but to help others do the same. I am so proud of her and so happy that she is on my team! I cannot wait to see the impact she will have on people’s lives!
