I’ve struggled with my weight most of my life. I actually can’t remember a time I wasn’t doing some new fad diet. My weight constantly went up and down and after I had my 3 kids it pretty much just stayed up. I lost and gained back the same 20 pounds so many times that I lost count. I felt tired and depressed all the time. I felt like I was cheating my family out of the healthy happy wife and mom they deserved. I didn’t want to go out anymore because I was embarrassed by the way I looked. I even overheard one of my friends husbands call me chubby. I was at such a low point and when I didn’t think I could feel any worse, my mom was diagnosed with cancer. That was it. I knew I needed to change. I needed to be healthy for my kids and strong to face the cancer with my mom.
I started watching what I ate but I was too intimated to go to the gym. My progress was going so slow. As my mom got sicker I realized she wasn’t going to get better and I really wanted her to see me conquer my weight battle she had seen me struggle with my whole life. I knew I needed to get more serious and to see the results I wanted I needed to hit the gym. I started looking into personal trainers in Utah and Sandy’s site popped up. I saw that she did training out of her own private gym and that was just what I needed. I went to my initial consultation and felt so comfortable and motivated by Sandy right away. I signed up and started the next week. The following couple of weeks were a little challenging but with Sandy’s guidance, by the time I got my second nutrition plan I felt like a pro. I was already getting stronger in my workouts and I was losing pounds and inches consistently. I couldn’t believe the change I felt within myself. For the first time in a long time I had confidence. It was easy to stay on track because I had so much support from my husband, family and friends. My mom could see the change in me and it made her so happy.
About half way through my transformation my mom lost her battle with cancer. Normally something like this would totally derail me and I would go way off track. Being accountable to Sandy kept me going. She was really there for me after my mom’s death. I wish my mom could have seen me get to the end of my program while she was still here but I know she’s watching proudly somewhere.
I feel like a new person. I look good and feel good in my clothes. I even confidently wore a bikini this summer. Something I haven’t been able to do before. I’m done with my six-month transformation but I feel like this is just the beginning. I decided to move on to Sandy’s 12-week program just to get me used to doing things on my own a little more. I’m so excited to start and I can’t wait to see where I can go from here!
