I started my weight loss journey in Feb. 2017. I have been on the journey many times, and in many ways, but have never met my goal until now! I was determined to make it happen this time. My doctor told me he was putting me on insulin if I didn’t do something. My A1C was 13, which is BAD! After some tears, and soul searching, I changed my mind set, and got to work.
At first I just made food changes. Then I started walking. Finally, I decided I needed more help to reach my goal, so I joined Lady Fitness. I loved the help I received on using the equipment, and what to do when I came in. Then I tried the Nutrifit Class. I am not a class person, but I really liked the small group, and the nutrition help combined with the fitness. I signed up! Rachel helped me figure out my Macros, and helped me make adjustments as I hit plateaus. She knew that my goal was to lose a total of 80 pounds, and do it by the time my husband and I went to Hawaii. My husband and I had planned this trip for about a year, and I wanted to be at goal by then.
A week before the trip, I had my last weigh in. I had reached my goal, and lost a total of 80 pounds. This was in May, so it took 15 months, but was worth it! This summer my husband and I have gone hiking, kayaking, and I have gone from walking 2 or 3 miles to walking 5 miles at a time, with a little bit of jogging too. I don’t run! I have continued coming to the gym two or three times a week to help with strength training. I am also continuing with Nutrifit. I will be having surgery for a hernia and on both feet in a couple of months. Rachel will help me make adjustment to my macros while I am down for a couple of months.
I have learned so much, and feel so much better. I can do things that I haven’t been able to do for a long time. I have gone from a size 22W to a 10. My new goal is to lose 10 more pounds, and be out of double digits. I know with the help of Rachel and the other wonderful people at Lady Fitness I can do it. It is well worth the investment!
