Past Me: Where to begin is such a hard place to start. For many years I’ve had such an internal struggle with my external weight. In all of my pictures, I was rarely front and center. When I was, I always felt as through I was the “Fat One” in the group, always. When I would gather with my friends and family to look at our pictures, I dreaded every one because although I was smiling on the outside, I was really embarrassed, horrified and crying on the inside. For years I tried all sorts of classes and I tried all sorts of eating plans. None of them worked. The weight always came back with a vengeance and with a little added bonus of even more weight. I constantly felt tired and exhausted. My body never changed for the better. It just got worse. Then I met Sandi.
Present Me: Sadly, I hit my lowest low in self esteem and my highest weight . My diet was awful and my cholesterol was high. After summing up Me, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I was finally ready and willing to do anything it took to change who I was. I discovered my determination. After taking many years of classes and trying other trainers, I knew Sandi was different. It was her genuine enthusiasm and zeal for helping people that shone through and set her apart from the typical trainer. Her knowledge and expertise were beyond anything anyone else had ever shared with me. She really cared! When I realized that, I gave Sandi my full commitment and the work began. Being that I am a working mom and housewife, I needed to work out a plan that would fit my busy schedule. All those past hours in the gym and standing on scales were days of old. Sandi put me on a plan that combined efficient cardiovascular and strength training. great motivational coaching, and visual goal setting. No more measuring food, no more counting calories, and no more weighing myself on the scale. She walked me through the stages of my lifestyle change and encouraged me along the way. It has been just over a year, and I can say that I have attained and surpassed my goal. I’m glad to say that 70% of my closet has been donated. I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been and I feel great. I have so much more energy now. I even ran my first 5K at 47 years old. I am no longer the self conscious “Fat One” in the pictures. My smile is true and I am happy.
Future Me: As for the future, I can say that I am excited and ready to embrace my new goals and can do so with confidence.
THANK YOU Sand! Thank you for helping find the “New Me”.
