“There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirt, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect”. – Ronald Reagan
Today I look back, look back only to see growth. I decided to start making big changes in my life about a year ago. I started going to the gym, eating better but just couldn’t make it work. I was setting unachievable goals in record timing. Day in, day out, no real results. I was so sick and tired of being sick and tired, of my poor choices, eating habits… all of it. I really started seeking God in this time, and felt an urgency on my health mentally and physically. Although I never found that magic pill; I found something better! I found a community of loving people that know the struggle, and help me see my strength and progress.
I know God has opened so many doors for me to make this all possible. Every step of the way I fought, but God has bigger plans then we think! My mom convinced me to try out Get Phit Studio (GPS), where I was challenged and supported. I soon met Shawn and Kathy. My mom and I stayed late after a class and became huge fans of these loving people. I knew Kathy was the one.. haha. Kathy was so supportive, understanding, and truly cared about my struggles. She has been dedicated to my success, even when I wasn’t sure. Through my time with Kathy as my trainer I had a lot of ups and downs. All the problems I solved by food, had to be replaced with something else. Go figure I became pretty admit about working out. I started learning more about myself and that is where real progress began. I was able to push myself and see the results. I have lost a total of 25 lbs, and still going. I feel amazing, I am able to do so much more than I thought I would.
If you are looking for a sign to start taking better care of your body, I don’t have one but I pray this speaks to you. If it does please speak with Kathy and/or Shawn to get an individualized lifestyle plan that made all the difference for me.
PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION!
