I watched my friend Leslie's weight loss journey with Beachbody for THREE YEARS before I finally decided to jump in. After that, it didn't take me long to wonder, "Why on earth did I wait so long?!"
But even once you do start down your own path, you need to be prepared for more waiting. True health is not achieved overnight; it takes hard work and dedication to nutrition, exercise and nurturing your spirit. You will need to be patient and willing to wait as long as it takes to reach your goal. No one program is going to be the right fit for everyone, but the person who never tries at all will spend their entire life waiting.
So what are you waiting for? If you're ready, I'm here. And I can't wait to help you.
Guess what? It worked! There were MANY days in which I easily could have said it was too hard or I was too tired or I was too busy. But because I was NOT about to have to pay somebody because of a lame excuse, I got off my fanny and did it anyway! And instead of gaining my usual 10+ pounds over the holidays, I actually lost .7!
Accountability is everything. If you struggle with consistency and the it's-so-easy-to-keep-quitting syndrome, consider joining my accountability group. We support each other and keep each other on track. And that's what gets results!
I have heard so many great things from other people about the 3 Day Refresh, I just had to try it myself! I chose August 1 to 3. I liked all of the drinks, shakes, fruits, and vegetable dishes, and really the only challenge was being at a family gathering on the second day and having yummy food staring me in the face! (But amazingly, I successfully resisted temptation!)
I felt great throughout the weekend and ended up losing 3 pounds and 3.5 inches, which made me very happy! It truly felt like I gave my body a rest from the usual "stuff" and it was awesome to be able to do a cleanse without starving myself! I look forward to doing it again sometime this fall.
I have struggled with my weight and making healthy choices for much of my adult life. Several years ago I overcame a candida albicans overgrowth through a challenging--but simple--diet adjustment and lost about 50 pounds! I felt better than I could ever remember. I thought to myself, “I wish there was a way that I could help other people feel this way, too!”
Flash forward to a severe poison ivy infection and subsequent steroid prescription. Candida overgrowth back stronger than ever. Instant weight gain. Attempts to reverse failed. Flash forward a little further to multiple fertility treatments and the requisite hormone regimens. More candida taking over my body. More weight gained. More self-esteem lost. And more attempts to get healthy failed.
Now flash to this summer, when I decided that enough was enough and the only gift I wanted for my 39th birthday was to take back my health and reclaim my body. For good. I learned through the last few years that I cannot do this on my own--I need support from like-minded people. I remembered seeing the amazing results that my friend (and now coach) Leslie had attained through her own journey with the Beachbody programs, so I ordered my own. And joined the Beachbody community for support. And--most surprisingly--decided that perhaps I too could be a coach and fulfill that wish I had had way back when I was healthy. But do it WHILE on my own journey back to health!
And now I know for sure--that support is key. And one of the best ways to get and give support is to be a part of an online challenge group. You are much more likely to get off your couch and do a workout, or choose nutritious foods, if you know your group-mates are expecting to hear from you about it. You are more likely to shake off the setbacks and try, try again if you have people around you cheering you on.
I invite you to join me to take the first step in making a change in your life--for good. Together we'll choose the right program for you. And through a small, private online group we’ll eat nutritiously, share ways to be active, and be supported in our own journeys toward health. Together we WILL achieve our goals!
If you’re ready to really start living your life to your fullest potential, get in touch with me! Let’s do this together!
Hi! I'm Lyn and this is where I blog about family, health, workouts, nutrition, meditation, relaxation & life in general. But it's not all about me--it's about inspiring healthy changes in other people's lives.
