“I Lost 13.5% Body Fat, Dress Size 12 to 6”
At the end of my last pregnancy, I was 196lbs, which I considered an improvement from the first when I was 203lbs. 30lbs came off in the first couple of months but then I was stuck with at least another 20 to try to lose with a full time job and 2 kids. After my first child I went to a personal trainer and it took me a full year to lose 18lbs and I could never figure out why. It was frustrating to say the least.
I met Rob from RobZFitness at the Brandon Expo after a long day at work. I was feeling pretty bad about myself and my energy was long gone. I explained my last experience losing weight and he confidently said ‘We’ll have that off you in 3 months’. I was sold. I came in the very next week and signed up for the entire 3 month program. I figure you can’t put a price on your health, confidence and quality of life.
After the first few weeks I had gone from a tight size 12 down to a comfortable size 10. At the end of the 2nd month, I was down to my old size 8’s and was looking forward to the month to come. Now, I admit, I went on vacation for 7 days and was not able to keep it up like I wanted to, so when I came back I had some catching up to do. But at the end of the 3rd month I went shopping and ended up buying size 6 dresses and my husband who has always been relatively fit now has a hard time keeping up with me. I was also able to buy my first pair of jeans from Buckle…I’d never been able to before because of my ‘mommy tummy’.
Am I happy with my results? Yes and no. I’m thrilled with the progress (lost 13.5% body fat, 3” upper body, 2.75” hips and 1.5” thighs) that I’ve made in 3 short months but I’m not stopping here! I now have the confidence, tools and training to keep up the momentum. I now know the ‘secret formula’ for weight loss…hard work, commitment and a clear, understandable plan. No more half-hearted workouts and vague meal plans. Taylor has kept me motivated and coming back for more agonizing workouts and for that I can’t thank him enough. (love the text messages!) I placed all my trust in their advice and experience and I was not disappointed. I encourage you to do the same…you won’t regret it!
