July of 2012, after a lifetime of yo-yo diet-fads and haphazard workout routines that produced minimal results, I reached the point of looking desperately for a way to establish a healthy relationship with food and exercise. That’s when I came across Body By Sandy’s website. I read with great interest the testimonials of her clients and studied their before and after pictures closely. Having never lifted weights in my life and feeling intimidated every time I even walked through the weight section of the gym, I wondered if Sandy’s program would work for me. It was also a major commitment financially and would be doubly challenging since I travel weekly as a flight attendant. Even so, Sandy designed a customized plan for me and assured me it would work. After much deliberation, I decided to go for it! I dedicated myself completely to her diet and exercise routine. After three months the results were impressive enough that Sandy convinced me to train with the goal of competing in a Fitness Competition!!! I was hesitant but she prevailed on me emphasizing the importance of having a goal beyond a number on a scale or a dress size. So, I agreed. It turned out to be the right mix of fear and motivation and it inspired me to work even harder to prepare for the show. Six months later I stood on stage in my first competition with a great sense of pride and accomplishment. I’m very grateful to Sandy for all she had done to help me. It turned out to be a life-changing experience and I have now competed in 3 shows!!
Sandy has a proven track record of life-transforming wellness training. She has brought together a network of strong women who form friendships and encourage each other through the ups and downs. Particularly helpful were the pre-competition posing sessions with the BBS crew – they helped push me past the moments of discouragement and gave me the support I needed to compete.
It has been a year and a half since I began my journey to a healthy lifestyle and I am beyond what I ever could have envisioned. The best part is that I now see food as a fuel that provides the energy needed to do the things I enjoy. I am very pleased with my transformation and the way I feel now. Thank you Sandy for changing my life forever!!!
