In August 2012 I realized it was time to make a change and start working out to become healthier. I signed up for Body Renew to work with a trainer and keep me motivated and driven to lose weight. At first I was a little discouraged and was not seeing results like I thought that I would be. Soon after the first month the weight began coming off, I started feeling better when seeing the results and was ready to kick butt. I was working full time, going to school not being able to eat right or make it to the gym.
After working out with Whitney, setting a good meal plan counting my calories right as well that was enough motivation to get back on the horse. I started at 236 lbs and by December I was down to 219 lbs. Just in those few months that was a big change for me to finally start feeling good like I had overcome a hurdle, that feeling of a few pounds off made a difference. I felt confident, healthy, happy and determined. As time went on the weight kept coming off, but of course there is always a set back. I think had it not been for my driven trainer to motivate me , I do not think I would have made it this far. Whitney has shown me determination and dedication get you there, not saying NO, but always saying I can, I will and I am going too.
There are no words for my appreciation for the she has given me to be where I am now at this weight and still losing. I am now 179.8 lbs and plan to compete in a figure competition October 2015, lean , strong and weighing 145 lbs. Thank you Body Renew, Thank you Whitney for not giving up on me, but helping me to achieve my goal weight.
